Maybe you just want a pinch in your coffee…or a drip on some ice cream…or a swirl into a homemade milkshake…I am positive we could come up with several uses for homemade chocolate syrup. This is why we are friends….

Anywho, I came to realize this summer that it couldn’t be easier to make your own…keep it in the fridge and enjoy it for a month or so. Best part…the ingredients are simple…and nothing added but the good stuff:)

I bought a few cheap bottles in the kitchen section of walmart. One batch of syrup made enough for one bottle with a little extra to spare. Be sure to allow syrup to cool before putting in the bottle.
