Dark Chocolate Syrup

Ok this a super easy deal. This is a nice dark chocolate syrup, no heat required and only 3 ingredients. This works for hot cocoa or something to drizzle on your favorite pastry or ice cream.

Ingredients:

Hersey’s Cocoa Powder

Sugar (I use raw sugar)

Water

Directions:

This is a simple 2:1 ratio. Two tablespoons cocoa to one tablespoon of sugar and adjust this for the quantity needed. In a small container combine the cocoa powder and sugar. Add two tablespoons of water and slowly blend together using a spoon. Once the mixture has started to blend together you can add more water until you get a syrupy texture.

You now have a nice dark chocolate syrup perfect for whatever you want! I happened to make some hot cocoa which I will tell you how to make now!

Dark Hot Cocoa

Ingredients:

1 Cup Milk

Dark Chocolate Syrup

Whipped Cream

Cocoa powder for garnish

In a small sauce pan heat the milk on medium heat. Add dark chocolate syrup to taste, it usually doesn’t take more than a couple of tablespoons of the syrup. Take a whisk and blend the milk and syrup together, be careful not to scorch your milk. Once everything is well blended and heated pour the hot cocoa into a coffee cup, top with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle a little bit of cocoa powder on top. Now all you need to do is enjoy!

Stay stellar everyone. If you happen to try this or any of my other recipes let me know if you enjoyed it!
