  • ¾ cup (88.5g) cocoa powder
  • 1 cup (200g) sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. To get started, take out a saucepan.

  2. Combine the cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and water in the saucepan.

  3. Put the saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the mixture thickens and begins to simmer.

  4. Let it simmer for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Remove the pan from the heat and add in the vanilla. It will thicken as it cools so don't worry if it seems thin.

  6. Let the syrup cool before storing it in an airtight jar. Refrigerate for up to a week.
