  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *I recommend regular cocoa powder. I tried Dutch processed - it's just not as good.
  • *You may omit the corn syrup and use 1 cup sugar total. The corn syrup version was preferred.
