I know, I know – another Sophie's kitchen post. But since I do need to feed the fams EVERY SINGLE DAY, I can't help that food is on my brain. Today we have the chocolate syrup challenge – store bought vs. homemade.
Here is your side by side comparison . . .
|Home Made Chocolate Syrup||Store Bought Chocolate Syrup|
Sugar (1 2/3 cups)
Water (3/4 cup)
Unsweetened Cocoa (2/3 cup)
Milk (1/2 cup)
Vanilla (1 tsp)
(you just melt together the first four ingredients on the burner and then add the vanilla at the end)
Cost per oz: 6 ₵
(it was actually only 4, but I'll pad the cost because I may or may not be inclined to eat some while I make it)
High Fructose Corn Syrup
Potassium Sorbate (Preservative) (2% or less)
Salt (2% or less)
Mono- and Diglycerides (2% or less)
Cost per oz: 10 ₵
We poured some in a glass of milk, because what really matters is the taste test. Will he like it . . .
Hmmmm . . .
Why didn't we do this ages ago!
I declare it to be quite delectable . . .
