Did you know you could easily make your own chocolate syrup with just 5 basic ingredients?
- 1 cup sugar (I used Xylitol)
- 1/2 cup cocoa, packed(I used cacao)
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp salt (I used sea salt)
Step 1: Put cocoa, sugar, and water in medium sauce pan over medium high heat and stir well to dissolve sugar.
Stir constantly and watch closely.
Step 2: When mixture comes to a boil reduce heat and set timer for 10 min. Continue to stir.
Step 3: When timer goes off add vanilla and salt and stir well. Let cool.
Step 4: Once cooled pour chocolate sauce into container of choice, I reused a plastic chocolate sauce bottle.
This should keep for 1-2 months in the refrigerator, to prevent crystallization you can add 1/4 tsp. of baking soda while the mixture is cooling.
