The most rich and indulgent Chocolate Milk you’ve ever tasted!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Using the recipe for my killer Homemade Chocolate Syrup, I’m going to show you how to make the most rich and indulgent chocolate milk you’ve ever tasted. The best part is that once you’ve made my Chocolate Syrup, you can enjoy this nostalgic and refreshing treat at the drop of a hat.

Made by simply combining my chocolate syrup with cold milk, this is an almost instant dessert. Served up in a fancy glass jar with a fun straw — who wouldn’t be excited to sip on this?

How to Make Chocolate Syrup

My Homemade Chocolate Syrup was created originally to go alongside your favorite ice creams and top off all kinds or desserts. But, the truth is, this rich chocolatey syrup is the perfect alternative to store-bought chocolate syrups that often are combined with milk for drinking. Store-bought syrups are sticky, thin, and often filled with artificial flavors and preservatives.

My homemade Chocolate Syrup is made of only water, good quality unsweetened cocoa powder, a bit of sugar, vanilla, and salt. After a quick simmer, all of these ingredients come together and create a thick and dark chocolaty syrup packed with so much more flavor and body than any other syrup you can buy.

How to Make Homemade Chocolate Milk

To turn this syrup into a rich, cold, homemade chocolate milk, you simply mix a bit of the syrup with the cold milk of your choice (feel free to experiment with non-dairy milks as well). After a quick stir the syrup dissolves into the milk, easily turning it into the chocolate milk of your dreams.

The chocolate milk is rich, thick, and perfectly chocolatey without being way too sweet. This takes the humble chocolate milk and really turns it into a full-blown treat all of your family and friends will love!

How to Make Hot Chocolate

You may be wondering: can this same recipe be used to make hot chocolate? The answer is yes! I love this chocolate milk heated up and topped off with cream or my homemade marshmallows. Even better, add a shot of espresso or leftover coffee to this chocolate milk and you have yourself a superstar iced mocha!

Feel free to get creative and enjoy!

    Do you think I would be able to make peanut butter syrup out of powdered peanut butter for peanut butter milk?

      Hum, I have never heard of peanut butter syrup so I’m not 100% sure what it is. Sorry.
