Homemade Chocolate Syrup, for your ice cream and chocolate milk

One of my favorite treats is a peanut butter, vanilla ice cream, sliced banana with chocolate syrup over the top, Sundae. Just the other night I went to have one, and yep you guessed it, no chocolate syrup. That will not happen again.....

Chocolate Syrup
adapted from: one good thing
makes approximately 1 1/2 cups

1 1/2 c sugar
3/4 c cocoa
dash salt
1 c water
1-2 t honey (what ever falls in the pan, this will help prevent sugar crystals from re-forming during storage)
2 t vanilla

Combine dry ingredients, stir well to mix.

Add water and honey, stir to combine.

Bring to a boil,

lower heat, simmer for 1 minute.

Stir in vanilla, let cool and decant.

Store in the refrigerator. Shake gently before using, if needed.

Recipe rating:  Oh Yes! (will make again)

Oh and here is how to make a peanut butter banana sundae,

Take a small bowl, "frost" the bottom of the bowl with 1 - 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, add a scoop of ice cream. Slice a banana over the top and drizzle with chocolate syrup, YUM!

As always, thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello. I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!

I've had the "no chocolate syrup in the house" moments, and I know how they can strike terror into one's heart! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

The chocolate peanut butter sundae sounds delicious. If I remember correctly, Reese's Peanut Butter Syrup is just peanut butter thinned with vegetable oil. I think I like your idea better. :)

Your chocolate syrup looks wonderful! I think homemade syrup tastes so much better. Plus you have complete control over the ingredients.
