Classic New York Egg Cream Recipe from Ina Garten

In order to make an authentic, New York egg cream, you have to use Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Syrup, made in Brooklyn since 1895. Our friend Ina Garten's recipe is right on the money. She's a Brooklyn gal, so you know it's the real deal! Grab a bottle of U-Bet with your next order and whip these up for your friends and family.
