Homemade Goodness *Chocolate Syrup*

I'm happy to announce a new topic on surviving and thriving on pennies. I will try to bring you as many good recipes I can find. No crazy recipes that will keep you in the kitchen forever. Just simple things that you can make yourself and not have to go buy.

Chocolate Syrup

1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup water
2 cups sugar (add less if you want)
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp vanilla

Mix the cocoa and the water in a sauce pan. Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve. Boil 3 minutes. Add salt and the vanilla. Pour into a sterilized pint jar, and store covered in the refrigerator. Keeps for several months.
