With just six ingredients, you'd be surprised how easy this homemade chocolate syrup is to make, plus it tastes better than anything you can buy at the store.
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup minced cocoa butter
- pinch of sea salt
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
Heat water, cocoa powder, maple syrup, cocoa butter and salt in small saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes until thickened, whisking constantly.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Let come to room temperature and store in airtight container in the fridge.
- Use natural cocoa powder vs Dutch-processed cocoa powder as natural cocoa powder isn’t as intense of a flavor.
- If you can't find cocoa butter or don't have it, just replace it with quality dark chocolate.
- Homemade chocolate syrup will last for about two weeks if sealed properly in the fridge.
