Making sundae syrup shouldn't be that complex. Seriously.
I took 10 minutes, a whopping 5 ingredients (including water) costing a grand total of $1.23, and wound up with two cups of the most luscious, not-too-sweet concoction that not only fits snugly into brownies, but makes delicious chocolate milk (and hot chocolate!), killer sundaes and is the best dip for strawberries!
The best thing? No fat, no weird ingredients and no running to the store!
