UPDATE 5/26/16 – Several of you complained about the thickness. If you want the consistency a bit thicker you can STIR the contents of the jar or shake it before serving. You can also add a teaspoon or two of cornstarch to the pan to thicken it up. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve made this recipe. I will cut it in half or make the amount listed below all you are doing is halving the recipe to make a lesser amount. When I make the original recipe listed below I often gift it to my neighbors…

Frankly I got tired of buying the real Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. It got a bit costly and I wanted to avoid the unknowns in the ingredients. Once I started making everything from scratch this was the very FIRST recipe I made from scratch. I couldn’t believe how easy it came together. Now the girls ask for it constantly and enjoy making this Homemade Hershey Syrup as much as I do.
I will say that I don’t feel guilty when I give them this homemade syrup like I did when I would pour the brown bottle into their milk. The antioxidants in the cocoa stay in tact if you don’t put it in the boiling water, I’ll take that! If you are going to eat chocolate at least have it be beneficial to your health, right?!?
This chocolate syrup recipe will last up to a month in your refrigerator….if you can keep it in there that long!

This recipe makes enough to fill a quart mason jar. If you don’t want to make that much simply cut the recipe in half. By cutting the recipe in half it will fill a pint mason jar. I find the best deals on Amazon.com and place a large order twice a year. Another tool that I LOVE to use with this is my Pampered Chef Whisk. The handle is weighted and breaks up the clumps a lot quicker.
