National Ice Cream Day * Homemade Chocolate Syrup Recipe * Food & Drink



Have you ever tried making homemade chocolate syrup for your chocolate milk, chocolate milkshakes or ice cream sundaes? Is a super easy recipe. You only need five ingredients to make it. You most likely have these five ingredients already in your pantry. I like that I know what is in the syrup. It's better than Hershey's. Enjoy!

Homemade Chocolate Syrup 

  • 1 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Sea Salt
In a  heavy bottom saucepan combine all ingredients. Using a whisk mix together. Continue to mix until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a simmer then remove from heat. 

Serve warm or cool if desired. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
