The Best Homemade Chocolate Syrup Recipe


I love making this homemade chocolate syrup for my kids and my kids are very grateful to have it.  It truly is the best homemade chocolate syrup recipe you can find.  Not only does it taste delicious but it is also made without high fructose corn syrup and is so much better than store bought.  It takes just a few minutes to make, requires just a few ingredients and turns out so rich and flavorful!

  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • 1 c. cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder and salt.  Whisk in 1 ½ cups of water and heat up over medium-low heat.  Stir constantly.  Cook until the sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture becomes silky smooth.  This could take 7-8 minutes.

Once the syrup is smooth, remove from stove, stir in the vanilla and allow it to cool slightly and then pour into a mason jar.  After about 30 minutes, it should be cool enough for you to place a lid on the jar and place it in your refrigerator.  As the syrup cools, it will also thicken.  After about 2-3 hours in the refrigerator, it will be ready to use and will remain good for up to 14 days.  

 


 

This goes so good over a scoop of homemade ice cream.

 


 

Drizzle it over a warm brownie.

Refreshing & Delicious Strawberry Cream Pie

   



     This is an easy recipe that turns into a very refreshing & delicious strawberry cream pie!  So simple to make that even the most inexperienced baker can do it.  It’s a perfect summertime treat that is perfect for picnics and barbecues.

 


  • 1 pkg. (24 oz.) frozen sweetened strawberries, thawed
  • 1 pkg. shortbread pie crust
  • 1 ¼ c. whipping cream
  • ¼ c. powdered sugar
  • ¼ c. cornstarch

In a medium saucepan, stir together the strawberries and the cornstarch.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to boil and then cook for 2 full minutes longer.  Remove from heat.

Allow the strawberries to cool for about 15 minutes and then pour into the pie crust.  Place the pie into the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.  Place a medium sized mixing bowl and beaters into the refrigerator also so they can cool. 

After 2 hours, beat together the whipping cream and the powdered sugar together in the chilled mixing bowl.  Beat until the mixture forms stiff peaks.  Spread over the chilled pie.  Cut, serve and enjoy!
