One thing we always had in our pantry as a kid was chocolate mix to make chocolate milk.  I loved the stuff.  There’s really nothing like an ice cold glass of chocolate milk.

My kids love chocolate milk too, but I prefer to make my own syrup.  Not only can it be made inexpensively, with ingredients you probably have on hand, it’s much better for you than the store-bought varieties.  Let’s face it. It will never be an absolute health food, but we all can use a sweet treat every now and then.  

This homemade chocolate syrup is not only good mixed with ice cold milk for chocolate milk, but its also very tasty in warmed milk for hot chocolate, or on top of ice cream for a sundae.  If you’re like me, I even like it by the spoonful!

Simple ingredients always make the most tasty treats!
