Homemade Chocolate Syrup (makes about 1 1/3 cups)
Barely adapted from Epicurious
1 c water
1/2 c granulated sugar
2/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch-process is preferred but natural will do)
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tbs vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring water and sugar to a boil. Whisk until sugar has completely dissolved. Turn heat down to a simmer.
- Whisk in the cocoa powder and salt until completely lump-free. Simmer until thickened slightly, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Stir in the vanilla and let cool completely. Transfer to a squeeze bottle for easy dispensing.
