So are you ready to make this chocolaty sauce, here is the breakdown of ingredients you need to make this sauce.
Chocolate Syrup Ingredients
Cocoa Powder– The base of this chocolate syrup is this cocoa powder. You don’t need any cooking or baking chocolate for this. If possible use dutch processed cocoa powder for more flavor. Use unsweetened cocoa powder and not drinking chocolate.
Sugar– I have used powdered organic raw sugar. You can also use white sugar, cane sugar or even powdered jaggery.
Corn Flour- Corn flour or corn starch is used to thicken the chocolate sauce. As we are not using any cream in this recipe, corn starch is essential to thicken the sauce and give it smooth texture.
Salt- A tiny pinch of salt wonderfully rounds off the taste and flavor of this syrup.
Vanilla extract- This is optional flavoring to the sauce. You can also use almond extract or peppermint extract.
How To Make Chocolate Syrup Step by Step
Measure and add 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons corn flour to a sauce pan.
Mix very well.
Slowly add 1 cup cold water and whisky very well without any lumps. Make sure the mixture is totally lump free before cooking it.
Once you have whisked the ingredients well, gently heat up the mixture and cook in low flame. Keep whisking and cook in low flame until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the ladle as thin layer.
Once the mixture reaches the consistency of thin sauce remove from flame and let cool thoroughly.
The syrup thickens on cooling, so do not make it very thick initially. Store chocolate syrup in clean dry bottle.
Shelf life: This syrup keeps well for 10 days in refrigerator. Always use a dry spoon to remove as required.
Chocolate Syrup Uses:
Mix 2 tablespoons of this syrup in 1 cup cold milk for instant and yummy chocolate milk.
Use this chocolate sauce as topping for ice cream, sundaes and cakes.
You can also use this as breakfast topping on pancakes and waffles.
Top Tips For Best Chocolate Syrup
Your chocolate syrup will taste exactly like the cocoa powder you use. Use fine quality best cocoa powder that is unsweetened.
You can vary the quantity of sugar as per your preference.
If you want less thicker syrup use just 1 teaspoon corn flour. Also note that the syrup thickens on cooling.
You can double or triple the recipe.
I hope you will try this easy chocolate syrup recipe and enjoy as much as we did.
