How to make a Starbucks Java Chip Frappuccino


Homemade Chocolate Syrup


Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 cup

  •  59g good quality unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 100g granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract


  •     In a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder and sugar until blended. Add the water and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and whisk over medium heat until boiling, stirring constantly.
  •     Continue boiling until mixture thickens, about 3 – 4 minutes. The mixture will still be fairly thin (it thickens to a syrup-like consistency once cool). Taste and stir in additional salt until dissolved, up to 1/4 teaspoon, if desired.
  •     Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Cool.
  •     Store syrup in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator. The syrup should keep, refrigerated, for at least a month.
