Homemade Chocolate Syrup Tutorial
Actually, this isn't much of a tutorial because it's so easy and quick that I only needed to take one picture. At any rate, one of my daughter's treats for completing her chores is a glass of chocolate milk. She gets to enjoy her favorite beverage for every 10 stars she gets on her chore chart. When the time came to actually pay up, I had no chocolate syrup in the fridge so I found a recipe to make my own. This is Alton Brown's recipe and definitely a keeper!
Homemade Chocolate Syrup
1 1/2 cups water
3 cups of sugar
1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
1 Tbs vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs light corn syrup or honey
Whisk all ingredients together in a large pot over medium heat until the sugar and cocoa powder is dissolved. Pour into jars or a bottle, refrigerate. Since nothing in this recipe is perishable, I expect this to last weeks, even months, in the fridge.
