This Homemade Chocolate Syrup is so dark chocolatey! Just 4 simple ingredients and it only took 5 minutes to make. Never buying the bottled stuff again!

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!

This Homemade Chocolate Syrup is so dark chocolatey!  Just 4 simple ingredients and it only took 5 minutes to make.  Never buying the bottled stuff again!

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!
