Take that, Her$hey’s!

Last night I made the Chocolate Sauce recipe I found here. I love to make syrups, flavored and otherwise, and thought this would be a wonderful replacement for the HFCS loaded stuff that comes in a plastic squeeze bottle.

½ cup cocoa powder
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla

Mix the cocoa powder and the water in a saucepan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve. Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Be careful not to let it get too hot and boil over! Add the salt and the vanilla. Let cool. Pour into a clean glass jar, and store in the refrigerator. Keeps for several months, but trust me it will be gone before then. Yields two cups.

Tried it today, drizzled over my favorite additive free coffee ice cream. As George Takei would say, “Ohhhh Myyyyy!”
