Grandma’s Chocolate Syrup

Chocolate syrup over ice creamWhen something so good can be put together in a matter of five minutes then it just makes it that much better! My family loves chocolate and Grandma’s recipe for chocolate syrup is no exception. I personally enjoy the syrup just by adding it to milk for a glass of chocolate milk (maybe dress it up with some whipped cream :) ) or heating it up for a mug of hot chocolate. But there are so many other ways to use this syrup… my sister will pour it over cake and let it soak in! And then there is just the simple drizzle over ice cream or the stir it in for one of the best chocolate milk shakes! Yep, Grandma did good! :)
