Homemade Chocolate Syrup: 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I use Ghirardelli), 1 cup water, dash of salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla In a small saucepan, add sugar, cocoa, and salt. Whisk together gently. Add water. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Cool. Store in the refrigerator.
Perfect Iced Coffee Recipe from the pioneer woman. Made this using a smaller recipe (just brewed one cup and let it chill in the fridge for a bit then poured over ice and added half & half). Her tip for using sweetened condensed milk to sweeten is amazing. Just be sure to put the remaining milk in the fridge so you can use it again!
