DIY Chocolate Syrup

DIY chocolate syrup

Think Hershey's has the market on chocolate milk fixin's cornered? Think again, Sugar Lips! Can you wield a whisk? Then it couldn't be easier to whip up your own chocolate syrup! Once you've tried it, you can't go back to that high-fructose nastiness. You'll need:
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Dump everything but the vanilla into a medium saucepan and commence to cookin' over medium heat. You'll want to stir the mixture constantly with a whisk as it slowly begins to come to a boil. Put your patient pants on, because this can take a good 10 minutes or more. Just keep whisking gently until it begins to bubble and simmer. The longer you cook, the thicker it will be. Let it simmer for 2 or 3 minutes, and you'll have thinner, easier to pour syrup. Let it go another couple of minutes (don't stop whisking!) and it will be closer to hot fudge sauce once it cools. You'll want to keep in mind that it will thicken a bit in the refrigerator. When it's nicely thickened, remove the syrup from the heat and whisk in the vanilla. Now you can serve it warm over brownies or ice cream, or store it in the fridge to add to milk and coffee. Hot dog!
