Old-Fashioned Chocolate Egg Cream Soda Recipe

Chocolate Egg Cream Soda

Yummy and frothy chocolate egg cream!

The other day I was look for a particular recipe on foodnetwork.com and accidentally came across this egg cream recipe. It brought back so many memories! I used to drink this all the time as a kid! You used to be able to buy them at almost all ice cream shops and diners but I haven’t seen them nor hand one in  years. They are so delicious and refreshing.

And, they are super easy to make.  Most versions call for only three ingredients: milk, chocolate syrup and club soda or seltzer.

Chocolate egg cream ingredients

Here’s my version of Chocolate Egg Cream Soda:


1/3 cup milk

1 1/2 tablespoons of Hersey’s Special Dark Chocolate Syrup

Club soda


1. Mix the milk and syrup as if you were making chocolate milk (with will be very dark and chocolate-y)

2. Carefully fill the rest of the glass with the club soda.

3. Stir gently and serve! Just like this:

FYI: Egg creams taste best cold, so make sure the milk, chocolate syrup and soda are very cold. Sometimes I even put my glass in the frig for a few minutes, too. 🙂

If you’ve never had an egg cream, do give this a try and then let me know if you enjoyed it or not in the comments!
