Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Ok so if any of you love chocolate syrup as I do but don't like all the "stuff" they put in the store bought brand, here is a recipe (though not exactly healthy) that you make and you can pronounce everything in the ingredient list. Team it up with your homemade ice cream and yummo!!

If you substitute 1/2 n 1/2 or cream for the water, you end up with a hot fudge topping, but it won't keep as long in the fridge.

Chocolate Syrup
1/2 cup cocoa (I usually sift it for easier mixing)
1 cup sugar
dash of salt
1 cup water
1 tsp vanilla
Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a saucepan. Add water, and mix until smooth. Bring to a boil, and allow it to boil for 1 minute - be careful it doesn't boil over. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool and refrigerate.

My mother made that exact recipe of chocolate syrup all my growing up years. I never liked white milk and so she always had chocolate syrup for me to add to my milk. When my boys were little I made it for them. But it has been YEARS since I made any. You make me want a glass of choc milk with homemade Choc syrup. YUM!!

This sounds wonderful, I am not a huge chocolate syrup fan, but this sounds so much better than Hershey's chocolate syrup! :)

Um, I'm glad you linked it up, but you still didn't make any for me - LOL!!
