This is perfect for diabetics seeking a chocolate syrup for hot or cold milk treats.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 Cup unsweetened cocoa
  • artificial sweetener to equal 1/2 Cup sugar; plus 2 1/2 Tablespoons
  • 1/2 Cup hot water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
Instructions
  1. In saucepan, combine cocoa, artificial sweetener, sugar and water; mix well. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture comes to boiling point. Stir in vanilla when cooled to below 140 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  2. Store syrup in jar in refrigerator. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons, or less if desired, to skim milk allowance to make hot or cold chocolate. This cannot be used as a topping since it has a bitter taste before being mixed with milk.
  3. It does impart some bitterness when used in cocktails unless the drink also uses cream or milk.
