I mentioned earlier that I've been getting frustrated with my homemade maple syrup hardening into a rock in the bottom of my container so I decided to see what other syrup options I might have. When I have berries I sometimes make syrup with them, but when I found myself without berries where else should I turn, but to chocolate. I came up with this and it was really yummy. We spread Peanut Butter on our pancakes and topped them with homemade chocolate syrup.
Chocolate Pancake Syrup
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking cocoa
5 teaspoons cornstarch
1 cup water
4 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix together sugar, cocoa, cornstarch and water in a saucepan until smooth. Heat until thick and bubbly. Add butter and vanilla and mix well. Makes 2 cups. (You could half this for a smaller family)
