Author Notes

I eat this with a spoon. So should you. —darksideofthespoon

  • Makes 1 liter
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 cup finely chopped high quality dark chocolate
In This Recipe
  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!
