Homemade Chocolate Syrup

I save a lot of money with this recipe.


  • 1/2 cup Cocoa
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • dash of salt


Combine cocoa, sugar, and salt in a saucepan. Add water, and mix until smooth. Bring this mixture to a boil. Allow it to boil for one minute, be careful this does not over boil. Remove from heat, when this cools add the vanilla.


I adapt this to the microwave by bringing it to a rolling boil in the microwave (about 6 minutes in mine). Probably less in everyone else's. :-) Just put it in a bowl that is large because it boils over easy and makes a big mess.

This sounds interesting... I'll give it a try! The one I've been using is from a book that came with my old microwave. It is easy and very good on ice cream:

2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
dash of salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine chocolate and milk in 2-cup microwave safe container. Microwave on Med (50%) until melted, 1 -2 minutes, stirring 2 -3 times. Blend in sugar & salt. Microwave at Med-High (70%) until sugar is dissolved, 45 - 90 seconds. Stir in vanilla.


Next time I make this I will add a splash of chocolate liqueur along with the vanilla to liven up the flavor even more.

Finding out I'm lactose intolerant has kept me away from chocolate. I'll definitely try this recipe!
