Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Makes about 2 1/2 cups.

Ingredients:

3/4 cup  light brown sugar

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

pinch of salt

1 cup cold water

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS:

In a medium saucepan whisk together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cocoa powder and salt until combined. Add the water and whisk until combined (no lumps left). Heat the mixture over medium heat and bring to a boil, whisking often. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for five minutes, until the mixture is slightly thickened. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the sauce into a mason jar or other container, let it cool to room temperature, and cover and refrigerate. Stir in a spoonful or two of the syrup into a glass of milk (adjust the amount of chocolate syrup depending on your preference).
