Hi, everyone! It’s Samantha from Five Heart Home, and I’m excited to pop over today with a quick and easy recipe for homemade chocolate syrup!

I stopped buying the “traditional” brand of chocolate syrup several years ago in an effort to feed my family real foods made with natural ingredients. Over time, we’ve tried a few organic brands of chocolate syrup, but they never tasted quite as good as our old standby and they were quite expensive.

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have come up with a quick, easy, homemade chocolate syrup recipe that not only tastes better, but it’s also cost effective to make in big batches. I shared a very popular 5-ingredient recipe for Homemade Caramel Sauce awhile back, so I just can’t believe it took me so long to attempt a chocolate version of my own!

Now by no stretch of the imagination can chocolate syrup be considered health food, but I do love that you get to control the ingredients when you make it yourself. No crazy additives or words you can’t pronounce here…just water, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt. Can’t get much more straightforward than that!

{DRAFT} Homemade Chocolate Syrup
Author: 
Recipe type: Dessert
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 1 pint
 

Easy homemade chocolate syrup — whipped up in about 5 minutes with just 5 ingredients — can be used to top ice cream, flavor chocolate milk, and so much more!
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups water
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions
  1. In a small pot set over medium-high heat, mix water and sugar until dissolved. Bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes, stirring regularly.
  2. Stir in cocoa powder and salt, and continue stirring and simmering for about two more minutes or until cocoa powder is all dissolved and mixture is smooth and slightly thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Store chocolate syrup in a jar in the refrigerator.

Notes
This syrup will thicken as it cools and should have the consistency of store bought chocolate syrup once cooled. It is not supposed to be thick like a fudge sauce.

    I did not know it was that easy to do this. Bet it’s a lot cheaper too!
