(Similar to Hershey's syrup)
3/4 to 1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
2 cups sugar
1/4 teas. salt
1 1/4 cups water
1 T. vanilla
In a 1-qt. saucepan, combine the cocoa, sugar and salt. Mix together until no cocoa lumps remain. Add the water and stir. Place over med. heat, and stir occasionally until the sugar is dissolved (but do not boil), then remove from heat. Stir in vanilla.
Store in covered jar in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 months. It will become thicker when cold, but thins when reheated. (Use low heat and stir constantly.)
Use as ice cream topping, in milk to make choc. milk, or in coffee to make coffee mocha.
And as always...ENJOY!!
