I love how easily music and food can bring me a flood of memories from my childhood. Growing up there was always a mason jar of this easy chocolate sauce in our fridge. We used it for chocolate milk, hot chocolate and on ice cream. It was something from my childhood that I had completely forgotten about until I had children of my own. What I know about this very simple recipe is that this is also the chocolate syrup that my Mom also grew up with having in her home.
Easy Chocolate Sauce
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup hot water
Combine in a heavy pot and boil for 5 minutes. Stir often.
Store in fridge in a glass jar.
That’s it. That’s all.
When you make chocolate milk or chocolate milk, just use as much as you like to taste as chocolately as you like. I just love it on ice cream.
There have been a few years in my life where I have had my life organized enough to give this out as Christmas gifts. Maybe next year will be that year? Ha. Who am I kidding...Christmas Sucks for Moms.
