Ingredients You'll Need

  • 300 g Water
  • 200 g Granulated Sugar
  • 100 g Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
  • 50 g Dark Chocolate (70%), finely chopped
  • 2 g Sea Salt
  • 5 g Vanilla Extract

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. Combine Dry Ingredients

In a medium saucepan, start by whisking together the granulated sugar, cocoa powder, and sea salt. This ensures that your dry ingredients are well mixed before adding any liquids.

2. Add Water

Gradually add the water to the saucepan while continually whisking. This helps in avoiding lumps and creating a smooth mixture.

3. Cook the Mixture

Place the saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, whisking constantly. Continue to cook for about 3-4 minutes until the sugar completely dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly.

4. Add Chocolate

Remove the saucepan from the heat immediately after simmering. Add the finely chopped dark chocolate to the hot mixture and stir until the chocolate has completely melted and is well combined.

5. Add Vanilla Extract

Stir in the vanilla extract to add a lovely depth of flavor to your chocolate syrup.

6. Cool and Store

Allow the chocolate syrup to cool to room temperature. Transfer the syrup to a glass jar or bottle with a tight-fitting lid. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
