Chocolate Syrup

Mmmmmmmmmmm.... Chocolate syrup!!!

Now I'm not saying that this recipe is like super healthy-- because it's not.​

But have you seen the ingredients on the back of Hershey's chocolate syrup??

I just googled it.

And I'm not surprised that the main ingredient in Hershey's chocolate syrup is High Fructose Corn Syrup. Gross!!

Did you know? 88% of corn that is grown in the U.S. is genetically modified. 

Do you know what happens to humans when they consume too many genetically modified organisms?

Neither do I. Really nobody does though- they haven't been around long enough. They weren't approved until the 80's and didn't hit grocery store shelves til 1994. Only 21 years ago.

The second main ingredient in Hershey's chocolate syrup is corn syrup. What a surprise.

Then you get some water, cocoa and sugar.

Then comes the potassium​ sorbate, salt, mono- and diglycerides, xanthum gum, polysorbate 60, vanillin, and artificial flavor. Whatever the heck that is.

Compare that to my REAL yummy food recipe with ghee, butter or coconut oil, cacao powder, raw honey, pure vanilla extract, and pink Himalayan salt. 

What do you think sounds better? Tastes better?

Do a taste test and prepare to be amazed at how much better real food tastes vs. chemicals and poison.

This may not be the healthiest recipe in my cookbook, but it is a damn good alternative to what's on the grocery store shelves. And it tastes sooooo much better too!!
