365 Day Challenge - Day 10 - Hot Chocolate Kinda Night

We LOVE this time of year and our hot chocolate. Recently we made some of our own chocolate syrup using a recipe we found somewhere online a few weeks back. I don't remember where but here is what I wrote down.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup

1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Hershey because that is what I had in the pantry)
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.

Heat and garnish....

Here is  a shot of my hot cocoa which I looked so amazing I had to grab a shot before drinking.
