A cold glass of chocolate milk is hard to beat. Sure, you can buy a bottle of the premade stuff or even chocolate syrup. But for the chocolate milk enthusiast looking to level up, this recipe is for you. It makes a big batch of seriously delicious chocolate syrup that can be kept on hand for whenever the craving for your favorite childhood beverage strikes. And it’s leaps and bounds better than the store-bought stuff.

How to make chocolate milk

This chocolate milk is made by mixing a homemade chocolate syrup into a cold glass of milk. The syrup comes together quickly in a saucepan and is decanted into a lidded jar that will live in the refrigerator until you’re ready to whisk it into the milk.
