DIY All Natural Torani Style Chocolate Syrup
We certainly do.
My husband likes buying the Torani Dark Chocolate syrup to put in his coffee, and I understand why- it's completely delicious.
It's also expensive and contains GMO's, so I've been looking for a good substitute. Nothing commercially sold spoke to us, so I found THIS RECIPE from Deliciously Organic and adapted it.
John says it tastes exactly like the Torani syrup, which is super sweet of him and we have loved using it in our coffee.
I want to note, before we get into the recipe, that I tried subbing in honey instead of sugar, but found it to be very evident. If you really like the taste of honey and will be using the syrup over ice cream or in chai tea, then it would be awesome. Otherwise, I didn't think the honey tasted right with coffee.
You will need...
1 1/3 c. All Natural or Organic Cocoa Powder (or carob, if you prefer)
1.5 c. water
2 c. Organic sugar or Sugar in the Raw
1/4 tbs. Vanilla extract
dash of salt
All the best, and as always, thanks for reading!
