  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 cup finely chopped high quality dark chocolate
  1. Boil the cream, water, sugar, pinch of salt and sifted cocoa powder, whisking the whole time. Do not leave the mixture, it boils over very quickly.
  2. Add the chopped chocolate and whisk until melted.
  3. Pour into a container and cool in the fridge without a lid. It will be runny when hot but should become thick once cooled.
  4. Serve at room temperature or warm. This also makes a wicked chocolate milk!

This was fantastic! I added a quarter teaspoon cinnamon, just because. We ate it with a spoon, as recommended, and also dipped fruit into it. Loved this! Thanks for posting!

We've had great success with this! It is truly dark and rich. And because it makes a gracious plenty, we like to give away for gifts and look like generous, selfless souls when there is actually still at least a cup in the fridge for our personal use. Thank you!
