Homemade chocolate syrup?


I have been trying to eliminate the heavily processed foods in my fridge, but one thing I keep buying is Hershey's chocolate syrup, full of high fructose corn syrup.  I'm looking for an easy chocolate syrup I can mix up and store in the fridge for emergency chocolate milk consumption (i'm preggo, forgive the cravings)

1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:
1Stir together.
2Boil 2-5 minutes, stirring rapidly, until sauce begins to thicken.
3This must be stored in the fridge.


You can't avoid the sugar, but at least you can choose a less devastating sugar than hfcs.

Fantastic, that is a lot easier than most of the other recipes I have found. I know there is no way around sugar in chocolate syrup, but this is definitely the lesser of evils.
