You'll need the following ingredients:
1/2 c. Hershey's Baking Cocoa (of course it HAS to be Hershey's !)
1 c. Water
1 c. Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
Combine cocoa and sugar in a medium saucepan until mixed well, add water. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring often.
Allow the syrup to boil 90 seconds, remove from heat, add 1 tsp vanilla. Cool, pour into a bottle & store in fridge. It will thicken considerably once it's cold.
This is slightly less thick than the store version, which makes it easier to stir into milk.
- For a Very Rich chocolate Sauce, use heavy cream in place of the water.
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Sauce- add 1/4 c. Peanut Butter (just after removing the syrup from the heat) stir until blended completely.
- Mint Chocolate chip- omit vanilla extract, add 1 tsp Peppermint Extract
