Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Note:     Do you know how much chocolate syrup my boys go through?    Making chocolate milk.   Pouring it over their ice cream.     For the longest time when the boys were little they were convinced that they couldn't go to sleep without a glass of chocolate milk.      It was inevitable that I would run out of chocolate syrup and be desperate to find a way to make some.       With this recipe, the boys don't freak out when they find an empty bottle!

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

1 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 dash salt
1 cup hot water
2 tsp. vanilla

Combine cocoa, sugar, salt and hot water in saucepan.    Stir until well combined.     Boil for 3 minutes.     Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.     Pour into a container and store in the refrigerator.

Like when my husband says "I'm not hungry for broccoli. I'm hungry for chocolate cake"....

So true! Of course, we are all such creatures of habit. "Routine" is like another member of our family.
