The BEST chocolate syrup recipe

Chocolate syrup tastes amazing, and it’s so easy to make it. As it is one of the most classic things you can top your ice cream with, therefore I’m going to share with you this easy to follow recipe:



1 and 1/2 tablespoons of butter

1 cup cocoa powder

1 and 1/2 cup of sugar

1 and 1/2 cup of water

A pinch of salt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  1. Pour the sugar, water, cocoa powder, butter and salt together into a saucepan or a pot over medium heat, remember to stir constantly until the mixture begins to simmer.
  2. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla into the syrup.

The syrup will thicken once it cools down, though you can serve it warm too. It also tastes great in coffee and hot chocolate, but as mentioned before I personally recommend it as topping on ice cream.
