Chocolate Sauce

This tastes like Hershey's chocolate syrup. It is from

1 1/2 c. water
3 c. sugar
1/2 t. salt
2 T. light corn syrup
1 1/2 c. cocoa powder
2 t. vanilla

In a sauce pan, heat water, sugar, salt and corn syrup until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the cocoa about 1/2 c. at a time, stirring constantly. Once all the cocoa powder is in, bring it to a boil and then turn to low and let simmer for 10-15 minutes or until you can place it on a spoon and it will no longer be runny. Add the vanilla in the last 2-3 minutes. Makes 3 cups.
