Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Welcome to 52 Kitchen Adventures, your source for creative & delicious desserts! See my Recipe Index for more. Don't want to miss another recipe? Subscribe via RSS or email.

I’m one of those annoying people at the grocery store that pauses in the aisle to read the ingredients lists and nutritional facts of everything (I do get out of other people’s way though). When I was shopping for some St. Patrick’s Day recipes, I discovered something sad but unsurprising: all chocolate syrups were basically high fructose corn syrup, sugar and preservatives with a bit of chocolate thrown in. I knew that even if I bought a bottle and used a tablespoon in one recipe, I wouldn’t really want to eat the rest and it would go to waste. There had to be an alternative, I thought.  So I left the store empty-handed.

When I got home I Googled “homemade chocolate syrup” and discovered that not only could you make chocolate syrup, it’s incredibly easy and fast too. It’s also much richer and has a more intense chocolate taste than Hershey’s syrup. Next time you want to make an incredible sundae or chocolate milk, try out some homemade chocolate syrup!

I’ve got a surprise recipe coming up tomorrow using chocolate syrup (another surprsing “I can make that from scratch?” recipe). What else should I use my homemade chocolate syrup for?

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

  4. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes, then add vanilla extract.

    I’m one of those annoying people too :D This looks very similar to the recipe I use as well! It is amazing stuff. Now the stuff from the store doesn’t taste good to me. Like slightly chocolate flavored sugar. Yuck. I sometimes use my homemade syrup to make milkshakes. Put one frozen banana in your blender(chopped up if need be) put enough milk to get it to blend smooth a splash of vanilla and a couple spoons of chocolate sauce and blend away. Or even a tiny little drizzle on homemade crepes with fresh strawberries. So good!

    It’s so funny that I thought the exact same thing the other day — since I started cooking I have found that I want to make everything from scratch and this is just another one to add to my list!

    This sounds like it is what I have been looking for, I will be making this tonight, so will let you know how I get on. I am currently trying to figure out how to make my own frozen hot chocolate. I thought it was silly to be using organic milk & organic hot choc powder to then load it with a junky chocolate syrup.

    I made a pretty good one the other day & it just needed a bit more of a chocolate kick so I thought a home made sauce would do that. If it all works out I can post quantities if anybody wants them for frozen hot chocolates? :)

  39. Stephanie writes:

    @Kate – I would love to try your recipe for frozen hot chocolate! I hope the homemade syrup makes it better. Let me know how it turns out! :)

  40. Kate writes:

    Hey Stephanie,

    I think this really worked, the syrup is delicious & so intense. I do like a chocolatey flavour so i used:

    125ml semi skimmed milk
    2 tsb hot choc powder
    2 tblsp choc syrup
    12 ice cubes

    I know it doesn’t seem like much but it does make a really good sized glass. The first time I made it i used cup of milk & a cup of ice & made over a pint of the stuff lol.

    I just chucked it all in the blender and gave it a good whizz until it was frappachino consistency, its definatley the closest I have come to Second Cup’s.

    I was in Canada a few weeks ago and discovered frozen hot choc there – we don’t have it in the UK :( Starbucks do a chocolate creme but that just tastes like a choc milkshake to me.

    hope you enjoy it :)

  43. AlisonH writes:

    Chop dark chocolate, totally submerge each piece in cream, the heavier the better. Nuke carefully; chocolate burns fast and it melts at just above room temperature. Depending on ratios used, you’ve now got ganache or chocolate syrup.

    And the reason you must submerge every side of every piece of the chocolate is that otherwise it can seize, ie form a structure that will never melt again (but will still taste good…!

  48. Marta Zorro Driesslein writes:

    This is an incredible recipe. So easy. I added a 1/4 teaspoon of raspberry extract after it cooled and I’m telling you, over ice cream, on milk or heck, just pour into a teaspoon for a healthy chocolate fix. Delicious. Next time I’m going to try using other flavors to add to the basic vanilla foundation…such as orange extract, or mint, or almond. Warning: If you’re another flavor than just vanilla, be careful not to use more than 1/4 teaspoon of another flavor, or the taste will be too overpowering. I happen to love highest-quality vanilla, such as Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla extract or paste, from Nielsen-Massey or Watkins. And, for the vanilla, I double the amount required in recipe because it makes anything you bake taste even smoother. Yummy.

  49. Nathan writes:

    Thanks for this recipe. I did the same thing I read the recipes for chocolate syrup and just saw the same thing HFCS and I left the store empty handed. I want to make a black cherry chocolate smoothie but using the store brands seemed to defeat the purpose. Now I’m going to use this recipe. Thank you.

    Since I’ve been doing a lot of research on junk foods, I’ve been more alert on what I feed my family. I was looking for a good flavor to add to coffee and this was perfect.

    When my sister and her kids moved in with me after she split with her hubby I told her I had only one rule, we eat healthy in this house! Whole grains, brown rice, ect. So when she came out with the Nesquick powder I shuddered in horror! I knew there just had to be a better alternative. I was looking all over and found a lot of other recipes call for WAY more sugar than this one. When I did find this I only made ONE substitution. DARK CHOCOLATE!! It’s not only my favorite but because of its powerfull flavor you don’t need much at all!! The kids go crazy over it and like it better than Nesquick. I just saw the recommendation for different flavor extracts and I’m sooooooo excited to try MINT! Thank you again for this recipe!!

    I have been making my own cocoa syrups for a while now. Absolutely amazing!!!! Try mixing up the flavors with different spices. My fav is cayenne and cinnamon. Then I found this website that actually sells the stuff. It’s called the NakedSweetShop(.com) They are a gourmet vanilla supplier, but they also sell gourmet all natural syrups. I have tried to base my syrup around theirs, I just can’t seem to make it as good as theirs.
    And their vanilla is to die 4. You get 4 beans for $10 and these are not like those test tube beans. Super oily and so pungent I just wanted to melt right there. And the size of these things, just half a bean is all you need.
    They just posted a blog about a vanilla bean marshmallow recipe and I am so exited to try it out.
    I shall use my homemade cocoa syrup to make hot chocolate and then add some homemade marshmallows.:) :) :)

    I never had a bottled for more than 10 years (Chocolate milk was always store-bought in cartons or bottles).

I then tried using store-bought syrup and it tasted weird. From then on, this recipe is my go-to for chocolate milk. Thanks for sharing!
