Just made homemade Chocolate syrup. I'm filling up my old container with this! It doesn't have more chocolate flavor than the brand name, but that's not a bad thing!. :)
from Amy Dacyczyn’s The Complete Tightwad Gazette.
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
Mix the cocoa powder and the water in a saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve. Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Be careful not to let it get too hot and boil over! Add the salt and the vanilla. Let cool. Pour into a clean glass jar, and store in the refrigerator. Keeps for several months, but trust me it will be gone before then. Yields two cups.
