This recipe has been going around the blogging world for awhile, and most people love it in their chocolate milk. However, I was always a Nesquik kind of girl. Give me the powdered stuff any day. I did try this in my milk one day, and it's good. I probably will start using this instead, especially considering that my container of Nesquik is about 4 years old. That may be a slight exaggeration but just slight. Yikes!
This syrup is really easy to make (about 15 minutes), and it's a great option to that other syrup out there. At least you know everything that's in it!

1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cocoa until combined. Add in the water and salt, and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and boil until thickened slightly, about 5 minutes, while stirring. Remove from heat, let stand for 5 minutes, add vanilla, and cool. Store in the refrigerator.
