Chocolate Syrup homemade

Found this chocolate syrup copycat recipe online after running out of a needed cup for the Ganache cupcakes that I was making.  Googled several and then made a batch, then another and altered and came up with this pretty perfect recipe for chocolate syrup.  

Super easy to make, way less expensive than the one we all grew up with and just as good, if not better!  
Use over ice cream, add to warmed milk for hot cocoa, add to milk for chocolate milk.. and most definitely use in this recipe.  Only the most delicious and dense chocolate cupcake recipe, ever!

Makes a great gift for a hostess.. or in a basket at the holidays, think ice cream sundaes or chocolate martini basket. 

I would highly recommend using the best ingredients you can find.  Organic raw live cocoa powder is readily available and so good for you.  Doesn't mean you can go hog wild with this stuff.. it has sugar in it, it is still a major treat.    But at least when you are going to indulge.. do it well.  Raw live cocoa powder is full of health benefits and antioxidants.. which is just good news.  So enjoy!   

Chocolate Syrup

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 t. sea salt
1 t. vanilla extract

Bring water and sugar to a boil, whisking til sugar is disolved.  
Whisk in cocoa powder and salt.  Boil 1 minute.  
Remove from heat add vanilla.  
Cool completely.  (syrup will thicken a bit when cooled.)

Recipe yields a little over 1.5 cups.

Get a little healthier..  I use coconut sugar, and raw organic live cocoa powder.    Every little bit helps.
