So I'm not extremely thrilled with the sugar free syrup you can buy in stores but it's ok. I haven't had any since last summer and we wanted some last night while we were having some ice cream. The weather is so beautiful this March in Michigan that it is putting us in the mood early to enjoy summer fun. Soooo, at 9:30 last night I whipped up my own batch. I made dark chocolate(not found in stores) and it was soooo good. My husband and I both agree we like it much better then the store bought and it only took 10 min.

1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups Stevia (you can use any sweetner here..but remember Splenda doesn't always go well with chocolate-it makes it bitter)
1 cup unsweetened cocoa-I used dark
1 tsp pure vanilla

In a non stick saucepan combine everything but the vanilla and whisk over medium-high heat until bubbly. Add the vanilla. Whisk until a little more and when it's think and bubbly-your done. This fills a pint jar (well after we already used some on ice cream). Enjoy
