Homemade Chocolate Syrup

I used to make a more complicated recipe so when I found this one, it was a very good day.  Tastes just like the store bought Hershey's chocolate syrup but without the additives.
  • 2 Cups            Sugar
  • 1 Cup              Hershey's cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon    Salt
  • 1 Cup              Cold water
  • 1 Tablespoon   Vanilla extract

Combine cocoa and sugar, whisk until all lumps are gone.  Add cold water and salt.

Cook over medium heat, whisking until it comes to a boil.  Let it boil about 30 seconds, keep whisking so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.  Take off of heat.  Whisk in vanilla extract.  Let cool completely and pour into a jar.

This will keep a long time in the refrigerator but it usually gets used up before it could possibly go bad.  Great for pouring over ice cream, making chocolate milk, etc.

Makes approx. 1 1/2 pints.
