Homemade Chocolate Syrup

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup granulated sugar
1 ¼ cups cold water
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
¼ tsp salt

In a medium saucepan, whisk cocoa and sugar until all the lumps of cocoa are gone. Add water, vanilla and salt. Mix well with whisk. Cook over medium heat, bringing it to a boil.
Simmer for 2 mins, stirring to keep from scalding.

Remove from heat and allow to cool. When cool pour into an airtight glass container or a squeeze bottle and keep refrigerated.

To make chocolate milk, use at least 1 tablespoon of syrup for every 8 ounces of milk, adding more to taste.

Makes about 1 3/4 cups.
