My rich, dark chocolate syrup is better than Hershey’s no cap! With just few ingredients and 10 minutes, you’ll have your own homemade chocolate syrup.

It takes milkshakes, cold and frozen desserts, smoothies, donuts, cinnamon rolls, coffee, to an executive level! And the beautiful part of all these, is that all ingredients are very affordable and already in your kitchen or bakery! It is not overly sweet. You can make it as thin or thick as you want.

What is Chocolate Syrup?

Chocolate syrup is a sweet, chocolate-flavored condiment ( a preparation that is added to food, typically after cooking, to impart a specific flavor, to enhance the flavor, or to complement the dish). It is often used as a topping or dessert sauce for various desserts, such as ice cream, or mixed with milk to make chocolate milk or blended with milk and ice cream to make a chocolate milkshake.

Chocolate syrup is sold in a variety of consistencies, ranging from a thin liquid that can be drizzled from a bottle to a thick sauce that needs to be spooned onto the dessert item.
My homemade chocolate syrup is very special because it can be made under 10 minutes. It’s also very healthy and doesn’t contain emulsifiers or preservatives like industrial chocolate syrup.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup Ingredients

For my simple, yet rich better than Hershey’s chocolate syrup, I made use of six items namely:

  • Sugar : For a more richer flavor, you can use dark or light brown sugar.
  • Cocoa powder : use unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Corn flour

How long does my Homemade chocolate syrup last?

My chocolate syrup has 5 days shelf life and can be refrigerated for 3 months. You can keep in a sterilized jar like I did or you can store in a squeeze bottle.
I want to state here that Chocolate syrup and Chocolate sauce are quite similar but the difference is in the consistency and sometimes in their uses. The sauce is thicker while the syrup is thinner. I use Chocolate sauce as fillings for my large Donuts; but not the syrup. I can drizzle the syrup over my donuts. So here you can understand the context. Check out my other SYRUP RECIPES

Chocolate Syrup uses

  • It is the perfect condiment to use over almost anything, not just breakfast pancakes, waffles, or French toast.
  • Pour it over a cake to make the cake moist and delicious
  • Drizzle over cold or frozen desserts to take it to the next level.
  • Pour it in hot milk to make a quick hot chocolate drink.
  • Perfect to pour over mug cakes.
  • Serve it alongside your pastries, or donuts or cinnamon rolls.
  • Use as fruit dips (make a thicker version of the chocolate syrup).
  • Swap it for pancake syrup.
  • You can also it for cake drips making sure to adjust the consistency as desired.
  • Let me say that it’s uses are limited to your creativity.

Pro Tip for making my Homemade Chocolate Syrup

  • Work with time. This syrup’s cooking time is 10minutes. Don’t over cook or under cook.
  • Use the ‘spoon-in’ method when measuring cocoa powder, or corn flour.
  • For a thicker syrup, mix 1 tablespoon of Cornflour to ¼ cup of water.
  • Cook on medium heat
  • Also stir the syrup using a whisk or spatula to prevent it from burning.
  • Keep an eye on the syrup while it boils so it doesn’t pour out.
  • Allow to cool completely before storing or using.
  • Syrup will thicken as it cools.
  • Store in a sterilized jar or clean squeeze bottle
