Ingredients:

3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Dash salt

Directions:

Use a large saucepan – at least 2 quarts. This will expand significantly when boiling, so you want a large pan to keep it from boiling over.

Combine the cocoa powder, water, sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Mix with a whisk until smooth.

Stir constantly with a whisk or a wooden spoon until it boils.

Allow it to boil for 1-2 minutes.

Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Syrup will be very thin/watery, as it cools completely and it will thicken to about the same consistency as Hershey’s syrup.

Store the syrup in a mason jar or any other container. It will keep for several weeks in the fridge.
