Author: Emma


  • 110 grams good quality cocoa powder (a scant 1 cup)
  • 215 grams sugar (1 cup + 1 tablespoon)
  • 240 millilitres water (1 cup)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Place all the ingredients in a pan together and over a medium heat mix everything together until the sugar has melted and everything is incorporated.
  • Once done allow the syrup to cool for 10 minutes in the pan. Once the time is up pour the chocolate syrup into your chosen jar or bottle.
  • *Just a quick note the first time I made this I used an old wine bottle for storage and when I went to use it, it wouldn’t pour out of the bottle it had formed a skin. Panic not if this happens to you, just add 2 tablespoons of boiling water to the bottle and give it a gentle swirl or stand the bottle in warm water for a minute or two. I keep mine in an old jam jar now and I have never had this problem again.
