Divine Home Made Chocolate Syrup

So while in amish country last wkend i baught a ton of carob powder and dark cocoa powder :) what better way to use this up? Make home made chocolate syrup! My girlfriend Angie has made her own for a lil while now so seeing my boys like their chocolate milk why not give it a shot right? So on sunday just gone while preping my green tomatoes i made up a big bottle of choco syrup :) and to my suprise it turned out pretty dang good! Here is there recipe Angie passed on to me but i used it only for guidline as u all know by now i cant follow a recipe!

½ cup cocoa powder
1 cup water2 cups sugar
⅛ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon vanilla

Mix the cocoa and the water in a saucepan.
Heat and stir to dissolve the cocoa. Add the sugar, and stir to dissolve.
Boil for 3 minutes over medium heat. Add the salt and the vanilla. Let cool. Pour into a sterile glass jar, and store in the refrigerator. Keeps for several months. Yields two cups.

So here is my version of this yummy recipe :D

1 cup of dark cocoa powder
1 cup of carob powder
2 cups of raw cane sugar
2 cups of water
1 Tablespoon of vanilla
and a pinch of salt

Mix your carob and cocoa with your water in the saucepan, stiring constantly, keep mixing until the cocoa and carob dissolves. Now add your cane sugar mix till dissolves. Boil for a few mins then turn it down to a simmer. *REMEMBER* WATCH YOUR SYRUP IT DOES NOT TAKE MUCH FOR IT TO BURN!
Add your vanilla and salt mix threw. Take it off the stove and let it cool down, once cooled off pour it into a sterile bottle or glass jar.
This made 4 cups of divine syrup.
