Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Sometimes all you want is chocolate.
This is a simple, dairy-free, gluten-free, quick recipe to satisfy that chocolate craving and get on with your day. . .happily.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup 

1 1/2 cups water

1 1/2 cups white sugar (or 1 c. coconut sugar)

1 cup cocoa powder (I like organic, raw cocoa powder)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the water, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt together in a saucepan over low heat; whisk constantly until the mixture thickens and begins to simmer. Remove from heat and stir the vanilla into the sauce. Serve warm or cover and refrigerate until serving.

Enjoy over ice cream, mixed into hot milk or your favorite dairy-free beverage for cocoa, drizzled over waffles or crepes, or mixed into cold mild for homemade chocolate milk.
