Chocolate syrup

A runny chocolate syrup made with cocoa powder. Lovely poured on ice cream or over chocolate sponge pudding.

This is THE BEST. I made it for over 30 years and finally lost my recipe. Imagine my delight at finding it again. Originally it was on the side of Hershey boxes, I was so sad when they stopped printing it. Thank you for making my day! Helen

Good flavor but I also found it too runny. DO NOT add chocolate to thicken this. My husband and I tried to add semisweet baking chocolate and it wasn't the smooth sauce it's supposed to be, it keep small bits of the whole chocolate. Just use less water or try corn syrup. Next time I might make the syrup first (sugar and water) and when that thickens add the cocoa.

Perfect! I substituted 1 cup milk for the water and added a splash of orange extract in the end. The amount of sugar in it scares me but I'm guessing any less and it would be too bitter.

this is a great recipe as is, especially for kids. but my husband and i made it richer for us by using dark chocolate cocoa powder, using 1/2 cup less water, then stirring in 1/4 cup half and half (would have used cream if we had it!)with vanilla. yum!

Yum! It was very good but instead of of 1 1/4 cup water I used 1 cup of milk, 1/4 cup water and two tablespoons of corn syrup just to thicken it up a bit. I also substituted raspberry liquor for the vanilla!

I was in the mood for a good bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup and realized one problem--I didn't have any!! So I came to Allrecipes and typed in chocolate sauce. This was the first recipe I came to and with 4 1/2 stars looked like a good one to try!! It was yummy and hit the spot. I made half a recipe since I wasn't sure I'd like it and just wanted basically enough for one dessert. I told it 4 servings and then rounded down the measurements (it called for some strange amounts like 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon!!!). Still yummy!!

This was quick and easy with onhand ingredients. It thickens as it cools, but I will next time use a tad less water. The consistency is similar to Hershey's syrup with a much more genuine chocolate taste.
