    Chocolate syrup recipe

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight

    I thought seeing as I have some Cote dIvoire Red African cocoa that I should try and make chocolate syrup. * I tried a CS search and then turned up a few recipes on google. *What I used was similar to most of them or at least the same proportions of cocoa & sugar.

    1/2 cup cocoa, 1 cup sugar, pinch of salt, 1 cup water, mix and gently bring to boil. * Simmer for up to 5 minutes until it thickens slightly. * (It does thicken as it cools.) * Pour it out into a glass jug to cool and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

    So far it has passed the ice-cream test. *;D *Next to try some of the espresso recipes like the one for mocha from Randy G. *Might even have a go at drawing on the top now that I have some syrup.

    Experiments for future batches might be some of the other types of sugar that CSnobs have been using in their drinking chocolate mixes. * Any suggestions?

    One other thing I thought about was adding 0.1% potassium sorbate as a preservative but at this sized batch I dont think it will last long enough to need it. * Might be nice to just have it home made and preservative free but not keep as long.

    This stuff is really yummy. *I dont think it would be the same with ordinary cocoa from the supermarket. * :)

    Does anyone have other recipes or know of an existing thread?

    I make mine with a 2:3 ratio cocoa:sugar, add enough water to make a syrup, pinch of salt, and boil in the microwave for 30 sec. or so. I like my syrup fairly thick.

    While it is still hot I stir in a tablespoon or so of Cointreau.

    Store in the fridge.

    Caffeol, the high proportion of sugar will act as a preservative. Refrigeration will also help, and Id expect the syrup to last a few weeks at least, as long as the fridge is locked and the key hidden. ;)
