Chocolate Syrup

I came upon this recipe for the easiest, cheapest and most preservative-free chocolate syrup there is on Pinterest.  It was a chance meeting; we were meant to be.
I've found many uses for it; I'll take any excuse to eat some of the stuff.  It is a staple in the refrigerator. Really. Like milk and eggs.

Chocolate Syrup
-1/4 cup cocoa powder
-1/2 cup water
-1 cup sugar
-pinch of salt
-1/4 tsp. vanilla

1. Mix the water and cocoa powder in a small saucepan over medium heat and add sugar.  Bring to a boil and let simmer for 4-5 minutes.  Add salt.
2. Remove from heat and add vanilla, stir well and pour into heat proof jar to cool.  Keep in the refrigerator.
