Homemade Chocolate Syrup
Enjoy the deep, rich flavor of chocolate syrup, made fresh from just a few basic ingredients. You won’t run out of uses for this versatile homemade sauce!
Last week I shared my adventures with Homemade Marshmallow Sauce, and you guys went bonkers! I’m so glad you were as excited about it as I was. There are a lot of things you can do with it, and I was so pleased to see by your comments how much it inspired you.
So today I would like to share another easy and versatile dessert sauce. This one is every bit as simple as the last, maybe even more so!
I just love how deep and rich the chocolate flavor is in this recipe. I used a blend of natural and dutched cocoa powder, and it really gave an incredibly flavorful result. The whole thing took about 5 minutes total to whip up, and now we have a delicious sauce in the cupboard that will be stirred into everything from chocolate milk to freshly brewed mochas, and drizzled as a topping over ice cream or pound cake (or both!).
I’m sure you’re probably catching on to the idea that I’m going somewhere with two sauce recipes practically in a row, but that’s a surprise for another day. So stay tuned!
