Chocolate Syrup

Poor K wanted chocolate milk last night...until I told him we don't have any chocolate syrup. So I told him I would make some today and I did! It seems much richer than the store bought stuff, but is approved by A! **Sorry no picture as I need to purchase some mason jars, but I need to find them first! Right now it is residing in my Rainforest cafe coffee mug!

Chocolate Syrup-shared from All Home Cooking
2/3 cup water(or 1 cup if using all sugar)
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup sugar(or 1 1/2 cups if not using nectar)
1 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

In a sauce pan combine water, nectar, sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Heat to boiling. Whisk for 2 mins. Remove from heat add in vanilla, whisk until combined. Place in mason jar(or coffee mug) cover and place in fridge.

**I've been looking for dark cocoa powder and can't seem to find it anywhere. I saw it at Christmas but never picked any up thinking I'd be able to find it afterwards. I even checked Whole Foods. It is still yummy! It was really quite easy to make too!
