We all know that any kind of sugary goodness is not actually good for us, but I’m here to tell you that there *are* ways to make these types of things healthier. Yes, they will still be full of sugar, but at least they will be made with “natural” ingredients, instead of chemicals and fillers.
Let me introduce you to homemade chocolate syrup …
Looks yummy, right? It is! So much better (in my humble opinion!) than anything you can purchase in the store, and made with 5 simple ingredients right out of your own cupboards. Just look how rich and dark this is. Mmmmmm.
Now, onto the recipe!
*** Special Note – Use a big saucepan – at least 2 quarts. The syrup will expand when boiling, and can easily overflow, making a big mess on your stove top! (Ask me how I know …. lol) I now use a 4-quart pan myself, just to be on the safe side.
So easy, and so delicious! I haven’t purchased chocolate syrup since I learned how to make this. Not only is it better for you, but it is much less expensive. Woo hoo!
