Learn how to make homemade chocolate syrup in 2 minutes, using just 2 ingredients. It's a healthy alternative to store-bought syrups.
Making chocolate syrup at home is extremely easy. I've been using store-bought chocolate syrup for so many years, but not any more. It's usually made with refined sweeteners and so many other nasty ingredients. Besides, this recipe only requires 2 ingredients I always have on hand and is ready in less than 2 minutes!
Feel free to use any other liquid sweetener as long as it's a natural one (artificial sweeteners are not healthy at all and they're not going to work in this recipe), but maple syrup is my favorite one, because of its taste. Raw cacao and carob powder can also be used instead of the unsweetened cocoa powder, but as I've never used them myself, I don't know if you need to add the same amount (raw cacao has an intense flavor and carob powder is sweeter).
Use it as any other chocolate syrup. I used it to make the next recipe I'm going to share with you guys: grilled pineapple sundaes, but it's also delicious with waffles, pancakes, crepes, cakes, donuts or even ice cream.

Homemade Chocolate Syrup (2 Ingredients)
- ¼ cup maple or agave syrup
- 2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- Add the syrup and cocoa powder to a bowl and mix until well combined.
- Add more or less cocoa powder depending on how sweet you want your chocolate syrup.
- Feel free to use any syrup you have on hand or another sweetener with a similar consistency.
- I've never made this recipe using raw cacao or carob powder, but I think it should work (add more or less if needed).
Can I use this syrup to make a mocha coffee? I want make a mocha coffee like Starbucks.

I had the measurements exactly backward but this is terrific. I used a quarter cup of cocoa and I think it took 6 table spoons to agave to give it the viscosity I wanted. Others might like theres a bit thinner but is terrific.

Hi Shayla! Thanks a lot 🙂 So glad you liked it so much!
This is super delicious and easy! I microwaved it for 20 sec. to make sure the cacao blended in well and whisked again. I was making this for my vegan daughter, but will be serving it to everyone!

Hi Christine! Thanks a lot 🙂 So glad you enjoyed it so much!
I used the organic cacao powder with the organic maple syrup. I put in an extra 1/2 tbsp. of cacao to intensify the chocolate flavor. Then I tried it with raw organic cacao using the 2 tbsp. To the 1/4 cup maple syrup . Darker, richer flavor. That is one I will use forever. Thank you 🦋
Hi Carol! You're so welcome 🙂 Thanks a lot for your comment!
