Chocolate sauce

Submitted by: LEAN-N-LEXY

Introduction

This is a homemade chocolate syrup for making flavored milk. Good as a dessert topping too. This is a homemade chocolate syrup for making flavored milk. Good as a dessert topping too.
Number of Servings: 32

Ingredients

    1/2 cup Cocoa, dry powder, unsweetened
    2 cups Granulated Sugar
    1 1/2 cups Water
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Tips

1/2 tablespoon in half cup milk makes a 12-15 carb gram snack.
1 tablespoon in a whole cup of milk 25-27 carb gram (not super sweet either)
Diabetes educators tend to round everything up, as I was told "store bought chocolate milk" was 15 carbs for a 1/2 cup when given suggestions to get more carbs in my picky eater. But the bottles I'd seen all had said 27 grams per 8 oz. So this syrup recipe seems comparable to store bought for a lot cheaper without gums or other thickeners or corn syrup which spikes my family's BG readings.


Directions

Combine cocoa and water in a saucepan til cocoa is blended in, then add sugar, stirring over medium heat until it begins to boil. Boil stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add salt and vanilla. Store in refrigerator in clean glass jar.
