Does anyone else get so frustrated with taking price tag stickers off? I think I spent 20 minutes the other day taking them off some new dishes. I even used a blow dryer because the heat usually makes it easier but these stickers had cuts in them so there were like 12 pieces. But let’s talk about something that makes everything better… CHOCOLATE!
I grew up in a home of five girls and one boy so yes, there was always LOTS of chocolate around. One type of chocolate we always had on hand was my mom’s homemade chocolate syrup. We used it daily to make chocolate milk and mix in our ice cream.
It’s so much better than what you can buy at the store. Plus it is made with real sugar instead of corn syrup! Oh and I recommend buying vanilla at Costco or Sams if you want to save some money.
- 4 cups sugar
- 1 8 ounce can cocoa
- 1 quart water
- 4 tablespoons vanilla
- In a large pot, mix sugar and cocoa together. Stir in water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat (if too high it will splatter all over the place). Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens and is desired consistency.
- Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
- Store in jars (or squeeze bottle for easy dispense) and keep in the fridge.
- Use in milk and ice cream.
