Canned Chocolate Syrup

Well Blogger won't let me up load photos tonight, I even restarted the computer. So for now you get a recipe and I will try to update tomorrow. Now please keep in mind this is NOT a USDA approved canning recipe.

It was so pretty when making it, and it was something quick to make, it just didn't make a whole lot. I want to say 3 half pints per recipe? I did the recipe three times. I would have kept going but ran out of cocoa. I think it would be a great Christmas gift to give.

Chocolate Syrup

1 cup cocoa
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon vanilla

Combine cocoa, sugar: blend until all lumps are gone. Add water and salt. Mix well. Cook over medium heat, bringing to a boil. Keep boiling until thick, stirring to keep from overflowing. Remove from heat. Let cool. Add vanilla. This can be waterbath canned for 10 minutes.
