Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

  • Prep: 5 min
  • Cook Time:
  • Total: 5 min
  • Serving: Serves 12


  • 1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla


  1. In a 1-qt. saucepan, combine the cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix together so that no cocoa lumps remain. Add the water and stir. Turn on heat to medium and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved (but do not boil), then remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.
  2. Store in a jar in the refrigerator for two to three months. It will become very thick when it is cold, but thins out once reheated (use low heat and constant stirring to reheat). Use as ice cream topping, in milk to make chocolate milk, or in coffee to make coffee mocha.
