Not that the picture is especially beautiful (or the food itself, for that matter), but as I was making chocolate syrup for pancakes this morning, I got to thinking... Does anyone else do this? The syrup is kind of a chocolate sauce, made with sugar, butter, cocoa powder, etc. (no flour, though). My friends I have met in college had never heard of it and thought I meant dumping cold Hershey's chocolate syrup on pancakes, and my father's side of the family thought that too when my brothers and I would ask for it as kids.

My mom, grandmother, and great-grandmother make this, so I was wondering if anyone else's family had their own version. I would love to know if this is a Southern thing or what!

Until there are none, adopt one.

I have never heard of this, but it sounds delicious.
Could it be a regional thing?

I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada and we have blueberry syrup that we put on our pancakes!

Wow, that's ironic, I'm too from Atlantic Canada (to the post above mine) and I've never heard of this either. It does sound very yummy though. Is there a recipe for a chocolate sauce you would recommend?

My husband's grandmother always made this.  Everyone in the family still makes it.

It sounds yummy and actually looks delicious.  I need to find a recipe for this.  I make my own maple syrup, but chocolate syrup would be a nice change.

It's kind of funny how everyone else has a regional syrup made from things that are available around them, but here in Tennessee, we have syrup with... chocolate.

Here's the recipe my family uses if you guys want to try it out. It makes a batch big enough for a a family of four, but then, my family of four might just be fatties.   Roll Eyes
Leftovers are awesome to dip bananas or whatever else in. This stuff is crazy-talk sweet.

Chocolate Syrup

2 cups sugar
4 T cocoa powder
1 cup milk
6 T butter
2 t vanilla extract

Mix dry ingredients in saucepan until well blended. Add butter and milk, stirring well. Bring to boil over medium-high heat and continue boiling for three minutes, stirring almost constantly. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
