Chocolate syrup

Simple chocolate syrup for crêpes and ice cream.

Ingredients

  • water, or 1 cup
  • sugar, or 1 cup, or 200 grams
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • cocoa powder

Preparation

This is how you make simple chocolate syrup. It yields 8-12 portions, and can be preserved for a while. Throw it on top of pancakes with bananas and berries.

  1. Bring the water, sugar and salt to a boil. Stir until the sugar completely dilutes.
  2. Reduce the heat, and add the vanilla extract.
  3. Slowly mix cocoa powder into the syrup. Don't pour it too fast, or it will form clumps.
