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 chocolate syrup recipe like I did when I would pour the brown bottle into their milk. The antioxidants in the cocoa stay intact 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?!?
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE CHOCOLATE SYRUP RECIPE
Like shown in photo #1, gather your ingredients. Then place water, sugar and salt in sauce pan to bring to a boil.
Be sure to continue to stir so the sugar dissolves. Heat up and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Let cool for 15 minutes before adding in cocoa. Adding the cocoa while the simple syrup mixture is still warm will remove the benefits. Stir well and then add the vanilla mixing again. Pour into a 1 pint mason jar and refrigerate for up to two months.
