Chocolate Syrup (Primal/Paleo)

Who doesn't love chocolate milk? It's a simple, satisfying treat. A jarful of fresh, cold milk with just a teaspoon of this chocolate syrup stirred in is what I've been craving lately. For those who don't tolerate dairy, I imagine cold coconut milk would be equally delicious. It's also wonderfully versatile as just a chocolate sauce as well. I'm imagining it spooned over a Coconut Flour Brownie or a Primal Biscuit with some fresh strawberries and some freshly whipped cream.  How about as a dip for seasonal fruit or whipped into coconut cream? I'm pretty sure this sauce won't last long in our fridge.
