Organic Chocolate SyrupPosted: April 16, 2013
Who don’t love chocolate milk, chocolate syrup, chocolate …
Well, I know that some don’t but I do, we do! BUT the organic chocolate sauce at my favorite food store is Yikes! Five bucks!
We can’t have that now can we? No, we sure can’t! So make it!
1 cup organic cane sugar
1 cup water
1/2 cup organic cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
Add 1 cup of water to your pot. Heat on medium until it steams. Add the sugar and whisk until clear. Add the cocoa and salt and whisk until combined. Keep on medium heat and stir almost constantly.
DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM THIS – cleaning the stove if you do will NOT be cool!
Keep the syrup at a low rolling boil for several minutes. You will want the syrup thick enough to not immediately pour off of a spoon.
Once you notice the syrup thickening, remove from heat. Turn off the stove.
Add your vanilla and whisk a few times.
Let the syrup cool to room temperature.
Pour into a squirt bottle and store in the fridge. This will last several weeks in your fridge – well it will if everyone can keep their paws off of it 🙂
Take pleasure in knowing that there are 5 ingredients in your syrup, all of which you know what it is.
Until next time…take care of you.
