"This is my step-mom's syrup recipe, and everyone says it's better than Hershey's! Great on ice cream, in chocolate milk, or drizzled on warm brownies."

This really is the best recipe for home made chocolate syrup. I’m sure it’ll taste richer with milk vs. water (save heavy cream for fudge sauce). To refill a Hershey’s bottle, scale up recipe to...

This is GREAT! My husband is a Hershey's snob. He refuses to use any other syrup except Hershey's on his ice cream. When he tasted this, he was amazed. He now loves this and even went and bought...
