Homemade chocolate syrup? Answered

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 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 dash salt
1 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

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.
