Hershey's Chocolate Syrup

Delicious chocolate syrup, just like the brand name that you would buy at the store (but even better since it's homemade).

REVIEW: recipe rating
Wonderfully easy recipe that tastes just like the real Hershey's syrup! The nice part is, this recipe is scalable so if you don't need a lot you can change the serving size to scale it down (or up if you need more). The consistency and flavor was a very close match to Hershey's.

I used less water to make this thicker so I wouldn't have to thicken it with cornstarch as others recommended. Turned out well. I used maybe 2/3 cup water instead of one cup.

Do add the cornstarch as said previously by another reviewer (I would recommend somewhere in the middle of the two amounts she stated)if you want a thicker consistency like real hershey's syrup. It really helped and didn't change the taste at all.

If you want it thicker just add a spoon full of cornstarch to your coco. It will thicken as it cools. If you want a thick fudge like consistency add up to a quarter cup. Wont alter taste....play with it. Awesomeness!

Tasted good, but it was very watery. I don't know what I did wrong, because I boiled it exactly 1 minute like it called for, and followed all the directions exactly.

I was having a sweets craving and wanted ice cream with chocolate sauce. Of course, it was 10pm and I wasn't keen on heading to the store then. Whipped this up and it indeed tastes just like Hershey's. I am also curious as was the review by JRONK as to how long this will keep?

So good -- cheap and easy too! I used Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa instead and it turned out great. Tastes just like Hershey's Special Dark Syrup, if not better! Thanks :)

My husband loves dark chocolate. Could I use Herseys Dark coco instead and would I need to make any changes.
Thank you
