Today is my birthday!  Its my actual birthday and my blog’s birthday.  I am 31 today and the blog turns 1.  What an amazing year it has been.  I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate then with a Vintage Chocolate Coke!  You might be asking yourself, chocolate coke…what?  Have you ever heard of it before?  Don’t knock it till you try it.  It is a winning flavor combo!  Sometimes the simplest things truly are the best.

I can’t believe another year has come and gone.  Never ever would I have guessed the success and passion I have for life and this blog.  I have learned a lot about myself and this whole blogging thing  and always stride to do the best I can with the things God has equipped me with.  The older I get, the better life gets.  God has been SO incredibly good and merciful to me.

Now, let’s get to this fabulous drink!

Chocolate Coke by The Casual Craftlete

 As a kid I remember my mom making me and my sister chocolate cokes all the time.  It was something she grew up drinking as a kid in the 1950’s.  Her and her family would head downtown to the local drug store and sit at the counter and order chocolate cokes.  This drink recipe is SO incredibly easy, there really isn’t a recipe.  Just good old tried and true Coca Cola and Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup.

Chocolate Coke from The Casual Craftlete

Start by pour about 2 tablespoon of Hershey’s chocolate syrup into the bottom of a glass.  You can add more or less depending on your taste.  For me, I like a lot of chocolate.

Pour a can or bottle of regular Coca Cola into the glass with the syrup and stir with a spoon until well combine.  You can stop here and have a delicious chocolate coke or you can add some Redi Whip an garnish with a cherry to elevate the drink even more.

    Happy birthday!
    I have never heard of chocolate coke! I just remember milk and Pepsi from watching Laverne & Shirley. Will definitely have to give it a try.

    I had to stop by and say that I share your love for chocolate cokes! (well, chocolate diet cokes!) My go-to order at hour hour at Sonic, and I love to make them at home too. I thought I was the only one :)

    This sounds really interesting. I haven’t ever had a coke so I am not sure what it would taste like with the chocolate ;) My husband is a die hard coke fan though, so he would probably love this!

    Thanks for linking up to the creative exchange link party. Don’t forget to stop on by on Thursday to link up what you have been working on this week!
