My boys drink a lot of milk and in their milk…they want chocolate! I get so tired of paying for a little bit of syrup that doesn’t last long. At least when one certain twin makes his own! ~smile~ I decided to make my own. I gave it to the boys to try and they loved it and told me it was more chocolaty than their usual milk. Yep, I’m a happy Mama.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup
makes 1 pint
- 1-1/4 cups water
- 1- 1/3 to 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup cocoa, packed and sifted if needed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stir water, sugar and cocoa until dissolved. Bring to a boil and then lower heat. Keep stirring until it has thickened. Add vanilla.
You can continue to heat until reduced and thicken to your desired consistency for syrup to drizzle over cakes and ice cream.
Put in a clean pint jar with a lid.
Stir before using. My oldest put some on a peanut butter sandwich he made on a hot dog bun!
