Homemade Chocolate Syrup

Awhile back I talked about how Hershey uses slave labor. So now what do you do for chocolate syrup? Fear not, here is a yummy homemade version that not only tastes better, it uses better ingredients as well.

Fair Trade Chocolate Syrup



  1. Stir all of the ingredients together in a sauce pan.
  2. Boil 3-5 minutes, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to thicken.
  3. Let cool.
  4. Use in place of chocolate syrup in recipes. 
  5. Store in the fridge. 
I love to use this in shakes, chocolate milk, and my homemade fraps. It's very simple and affordable. What will you use it in?

How long would this keep in the fridge? It's basically a sugar syrup, so probably a long time, right?

"Cacao," the principal ingredient in "Xocai Healthy chocolate" is "100 percent ethically traded." Xocai buys cacao beans from "small family-owned farms in Ivory Coast."
The "cacao farmers" earn a "fair wage and work in humane conditions." Xocai cacao growers do "not use agricultural pesticides" and their farming practices are "environmentally sustainable."

Brenda: I have no idea because it never lasts long around here because I eat it all. ;)
