I am going to let you in on a secret today. I love chocolate! I have always had a sweet tooth and when I made the change to real food, I thought that I would have to give up the goodness that is chocolate syrup. One glance at a typical chocolate syrup in the bottle and you will see that the first two ingredients are corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. These are two ingredients that I really try to avoid because corn is a highly GMO product. I don’t want that junk in my body.
Now for some good news for all of you chocolate loving folks out there. Real food chocolate syrup is about the easiest thing in the world to make. Two beautiful ingredients and that’s it. I use an organic dark chocolate cocoa because that is what I like. It is really dark in color. Your chocolate syrup color will vary depending on the cocoa you use.
I get asked all of the time if you can “taste the maple syrup”. My answer is, “No, it tastes like chocolate syrup.” It’s sticky, it’s sweet, and it’s 100% delicious.
You can use this chocolate syrup in all of the ways that you would use any other chocolate syrup. You can make chocolate milk, hot chocolate, and use as a topping on your homemade ice cream. I’ll be back soon to share with you my favorite way to use my real food chocolate syrup. It is AWESOME!
