Chocolate Syrup

This is a super simple chocolate syrup recipe using just 3 standard kitchen ingredients to transform anything into rich chocolate heaven! Drizzle over pancakes, pudding and ice cream, use alongside icing for an extra chocolaty cake filler or you can even use it to make a milkshake – what are you waiting for?


Keep it in a glass bottle at room temperature, the mini wine ones are perfect and it gives you an excuse to try a selection of wines! The sugar content keeps it from spoiling though it can crystallize over time like honey - though I can’t see it hanging around for that long! To get rid of any sugar crystals sit the bottle in hot water for a few minutes and it will soon look and taste as good as before.


Unless you’re already on holiday and looking for inspiration I would suggest making it at home and bringing the bottle for ease of use, if you can keep it long enough!

  • A funnel does make bottling A LOT easier and prevents a very sticky kitchen.
  • Beware of burning yourself as boiling sugar reaches a MUCH higher temperature than water - if it drips on you it will stick and continue burning! Ask me how I know...



2 cups of granulated sugar

1 cup of water

1/2 cup of cocoa powder

a pinch of salt



1. Pour all ingredients into a heavy bottomed saucepan and heat until the sugar has dissolved, stirring continuously.

2. Boil the mixture for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally. Keep watch to ensure it doesn't boil over, if it looks like it will carefully remove from the heat until it settles down.

Warning! Do not touch the syrup with your bare hands, it is at a dangerously high temperature at this stage!

3. Pour into a serving jug, or into glass bottles for long term storage. Keep at room temperature for up to a year.
