  • 1/2 unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch to thicken the syrup, not needed
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tsp vanilla vanilla extract recipe
  • pinch of salt


  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients: cocoa, sugar and salt.
  2. In a pot, slowly whisk in cold water and corn starch to make sure it is completely dissolved.
  3. Cook over a med heat, whisking to combine until nice and glistening. This helps dissolve the sugar in the water to make the syrup. Now is a good time to test just a little.
  4. Once the chocolate concoction has cooled, add the vanilla. Mix to combine.
  5. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use on whatever you like.
