Chocolate "dope"

Submitted by: LATTELICIOUS

Introduction

This is my mom & grandmas recipe for chocolate syrup. Not quite sure why they called it "dope", unless it has to do with the addictive factor. It was made for all occasions involving cake and ice cream when I was a child. Every bit as good, if not better, than Hershey's syrup. When I crunched the numbers, it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. Portion size is the key. Wonderful over vanilla frozen yogurt.
