Better than Hershey's!
You may never spend money on a can of Hershey's syrup again!
This easy to make recipe is pretty much identical to it.
Two reasons to make your own :
1) You know what's in it! (how yummy is that?)
2) It's cheaper, since you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry already!
It's perfect on top of ice cream or of course chocolate milk, Plus, in cute canning jars , these would be inexpensive and a welcomed gift by any one! (think holidays)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Use a 2 quart saucepan (don't use a smaller one). In saucepan mix the cocoa and water with a wire wisk.
Heat the chocolate-water over medium heat, stirring occasionally, when it begins to boil, add the sugar and continue stirring until sugar dissolves.
Bring mixture to a full rolling boil. Reduce the heat to medium low and boil for 3 full minutes.
Remove syrup from heat. Add the salt and vanilla. Stirring to blend.
Let cool, then pour syrup into a clean pint sized canning jar, or refill an old chocolate syrup container. Store in the fridge.
