Earlier this week, I made my own cream of chicken substitute. In the spirit of homemade substitutes, I also made my own chocolate syrup. However, I basically took all the homemade chocolate syrup recipes I found online and combined them to make my own. The result has been quite tasty!
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- dash of salt
Heat water in saucepan over medium-low heat, then whisk in cocoa powder.
Add sugar and stir well until it dissolves.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly for about three minutes. Be careful because it could easily boil over; I had to actually remove it from the heat (briefly) a few times during this time.
Remove from heat, then stir in salt and vanilla.
Allow to set and cool, then transfer to a container that you can place a tight lid on.
I stuck mine in the fridge overnight, then made myself a nice cool glass of chocolate milk.
If I weren’t snowed in right now, I would make a trip to the store to buy some vanilla ice cream! This syrup has a great consistency, but kind of has a bite to it, like maybe it’s a little too bitter? Overall, though, I give this recipe 4/5 herbs.
