A cinch to make (and you can pronounce all the ingredient names), this Homemade Chocolate Syrup is delicious and versatile!
It’s still #Choctoberfest, everyone! That means that we have one more week (this week) full of chocolate posts – including this one for Homemade Chocolate Syrup. This is my final recipe for Choctoberfest – can’t wait for next year!
I love to make what I call “pantry ingredients” from scratch, mainly “because I can” but also because I like to know what is in the things we consume. This Homemade Chocolate Syrup was originally used as part of my homemade coffee creamer, but has evolved to being more of an every day item used for other things as well.

This particular recipe is my favorite because it’s quick to make, and doesn’t make a ton of it for me to store in the fridge. Since it’s so easy, I can make it whenever I run out!
What’s in it then?
A few simple ingredients – some sugar, water, cocoa powder, a little salt and vanilla…and a tiny bit of cornstarch.
So, what to use it for?
Drizzling on desserts – maybe a sundae topping, or to make your own chocolate milk, like I did! Here’s my sweet son doing a little recipe testing. He’s generous like that.
Imperial sent me 40lb of sugar to get me through #Choctoberfest. Aren’t they …. sweet? hur hur hur. Sorry, couldn’t resist that one.
