Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Goodbye Hershey's and your high fructose corn syrup! Adios Nesquik and your guar gum and carageenan! Hello simple chocolate sauce that contains a significant amount of antioxidant-rich cocoa! 

1 cup water
½ cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
Dash of salt
      1. Pour water into saucepan, add cocoa, and stir until blended.
      2. Add sugar. 
     3. Get mixture to boil, then turn down and simmer for 3-4 minutes.
   4. Remove from heat, add vanilla and salt.
    5. Stir, and put in container, then refrigerate! I’d use this within a couple weeks, it never lasts that long in my house though!!
Tip: This makes the BEST chocolate milk ever!!
