Some may consider it a serous character flaw but I’m simply not that fond of chocolate. Oh sure, I once in awhile crave the taste of some good dark chocolate. And I’m not opposed to a piece of rich chocolate birthday cake but chocolate for the sake of chocolate. Meh. I can take it or leave it.
Unlike my hubbie who thinks anything is better with chocolate. Chocolate milk, chocolate cake, chocolate cookies, chocolate-covered almonds/raisins…anything. So when I found this recipe I knew he would be eternally grateful. Chocolate at hand and no preservatives or additives. Win win.
Combine in saucepan:
1 cups cocoa
2 ½ cups sugar
2 cups water.
Boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, cool slightly, and add: 1 tsp. vanilla
Store in a jar in fridge. Use on ice cream, or in hot or cold milk for hot chocolate. Use as a sauce on anything that someone thinks would be improved by adding chocolate to it.
If you’re a chocoholic you might want to try this.
But be honest with me. Are there other people out there like me who can manage without chocolate?
