Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Chocolate should definitely have it’s on place in the food pyramid. This homemade syrup is so good and can be used for so many things like chocolate milk, over ice cream, and on Hot Fudge Sundae Cake!

You can whip up a batch, or two, and keep it in the fridge for those special occasions.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup


  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder (I am partial to Hershey’s cocoa for this recipe.)
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 – 2 c. sugar, to taste
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. vanilla extract


Whisk cocoa powder and milk together thoroughly in a large saucepan over medium low heat.

When the cocoa is dissolved add the sugar and whisk to dissolve.

Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Watch constantly for boil overs.

Remove from heat and stir in salt and vanilla extract.

Serve warm or cool completely and store in clean, covered container in the refrigerator.
