This is the BEST Chocolate Syrup recipe
My mom created it
and we use it all the time
On Brownie Ice Cream Sundaes
(it is sooooo good on waffles – trust me!)
The recipe below is actually a half batch
from the original recipe
We don’t usually need a full batch
as it just makes too much for us!
but feel free to double the below recipe
and make a full batch!
I will also tell you the 2 different ways
we go about making it
I make it one way
and my husband puts it together another
You chose which way is better
(*hint* it is mine! hahaha!)
They both work great though
Waffles and Chocolate Syrup
is such a treat around here 🙂
- 1/2 stick (4TBSP) butter
- 1 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp Flour
- 4 Tbsp Cocoa
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
My way: Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the flour, cocoa, and sugar to the butter and whisk/stir together -basically making a Roux. Slowly add in the milk (1/4 cup or so at a time) and thoroughly whisk into the sugar/butter roux after each addition. Once each addition is thoroughly mixed, add in more of the milk… and so on until all milk is added and incorporated. Bring just to a boil, add the vanilla, and you’re done!
Husbands: Melt the butter in a small sauce pan. While melting, combine the flour, cocoa, and sugar in a small bowl (see it makes an extra dish…. why my way must be better!). Add the milk to the butter in the saucepan. Then slowly add the sugar/cocoa/flour mixture to the butter and milk, one Tbsp at a time, whisking into the milk/butter after each addition. After all mixed in, bring just to a boil, add the vanilla, and you’re done!
There you go. Delicious Chocolate syrup that is a delicious addition to any dessert…. or waffles 🙂
