Homemade Chocolate Syrup Recipe

Home made chocolate syrup is a sweet chocolate flavored condiment which can be used as a topping over puddings and ice cream or blended with milk to make chocolate milk shake. It also serves as a handy dessert sauce to drizzle over cakes ,pastries and doughnuts. Making a chocolate syrup at home is very easy and requires just 4 ingredients which are usually present in our kitchen pantries also it gives us the satisfaction of not using a ready made product full of preservatives and chemicals.  

So without wasting any more time, lets quickly look at the ingredients and the easy method of making this chocolate sauce at home.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves : 1/2 cup chocolate syrup

Ingredients: Measurements used 1 cup = 200ml
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. In a mixing bowl take unsweetened cocoa powder and powdered sugar. Mix well.

  2. Add 1/4 cup water to it and whisk to get lump free mix.

  3. Add salt and whisk again.

  4. Add the mix to a sauce pan and heat it over low to medium flame. Cook for 3-4 minutes while stirring continuously .

  5. Add vanilla essence to the chocolate sauce after putting off the flame.

  6. Use the chocolate sauce while warm or store it in an airtight jar in refrigerator until use.
