It's been a while....I know. What can I say? I AM SO SO SO SORRY. I've been really busy and really just focused on my marathon training. I am sorry that my blog had to take a back seat :(
In order to make it up to you, I'm going to tell you about one of the best things I've ever made - homemade chocolate syrup. MAKE IT NOW AND KEEP SOME ALWAYS IN YOUR FRIDGE.
Ditch that bottle of gross Hershey's syrup in the trash and just whip up some of this. Use it on ice cream, OR if you are a runner and need a recovery aid - use this to make your Chocolate Milk!
Taken from Shop.Cook.Make
½ cup Cocoa Powder
1 cup Water
1 cup Sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-Mix all ingredients, except vanilla, and cook for 8-10 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly.
-Remove from the heat and add vanilla. Stir well.
-Let it come to room temperature before putting it in the fridge. It'll thicken as it cools.
While it's still hot, you can pour it over ice cream or cake. To make Chocolate Milk, mix 2 tbsp of the syrup with 8 ounces of milk.
