Chocolate Syrup (Hershey’s Copycat)

Who knew that chocolate syrup was so simple to make? If you use Hershey’s cocoa (my favorite cocoa, by the way), the taste comes really close to the “real” thing.

Put all of the following ingredients into a pot:

3/4 c. cocoa

1 c. brown sugar

1 c. sugar

1/8 t. salt

1 c. water

Bring the ingredients to a rolling boil, stirring until they are completely dissolved. Turn off the heat, but the leave the pot on the burner until it cools. Stir into the syrup:

1/4 t. vanilla

Store the syrup in the fridge. A squeeze bottle is especially nice. My favorite use for chocolate syrup is on vanilla (or any non-chocolate) ice cream, but my family loves to use it to make chocolate milk! It does a much better job than powders, because it doesn’t get clumpy.

I also have a recipe for pancake syrup!

  1. Yum! I've never tried coco syrup before. I refuse to buy syrup if I don't have too. I've never liked it. But I grew up on homemade. 1 part brown sugar, 1 part white sugar, and one part water. Boil, then add around a 1/2 Tbl of maple flavoring. (or any, but maple is my favorite) It's one of the few recipes I actually have memorized 🙂
