I love a good glass of creamy, rich, chocolate milk- it’s so satisfying! But for the last couple of years I rarely enjoyed that little treat because I couldn’t bring myself to buy Hershey’s syrup with it’s list of 20 some ingredients, many of which I couldn’t pronounce.
So when I discovered that I could easily make my own chocolate syrup from just 6 simple ingredients I was excited! Rich and delicious, this homemade chocolate syrup does not disappoint! It makes a wonderful glass of chocolate milk and it is also tasty drizzled over ice cream for a special treat. You can even use it in the place of caramel syrup in this homemade frappe recipe to make a mocha frappe! And on top of that it is inexpensive, easy and super fast to make. In fact, why don’t you go stir up a batch for yourself? I’m pretty sure you won’t regret it!
