This economical homemade chocolate syruphas many uses, drizzle over ice cream, flavor milk, or add 1/4cup to packaged brownie mixes to make richer, moister bars. Aboutthe only change I made to Grandma Flo’s original recipe was toadd the light corn syrup to prevent the sugar from crystallizingduring storage.
Another delicious recipe from our Family-FavoriteRecipes Collection.
