Directions:

  • Use a big saucepan – at least 2 quarts.  Combine the cocoa powder, water, sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix with a whisk until smooth. Stir constantly with a whisk or a wooden spoon until it boils.

  • Allow it to boil for 1-2 minutes.

  • Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Syrup will be very thin/watery. Allow to cool completely and it will thicken to about the same consistency as Hershey’s syrup.

Not only was this incredibly easy and inexpensive it’s tastes great. Even better than that there are only 5 ingredients instead of a bunch of chemicals that you find in normal Hershey’s syrup. I made it with regular cocoa powder but they also have a dark cocoa powder that we’ll probably try because we usually buy the Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate syrup.
