Chocolate Syrup

1 cup cocoa powder

pinch of salt

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon light corn syrup

  3. Place the cocoa powder into a large bowl. In three batches, whisk the simple syrup into the cocoa powder. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Strain the cocoa mixture back into the pan. Add corn syrup and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  5. Remove from the stovetop and bring to room temperature. Place in an airtight container and store in the fridge, up to three weeks.
