Cafe Basics: part 1

I wanted to start this series as a way for you to be able to have a mini Starbucks to make coffees, lattes, and other drinks at home especially since fall is coming. I typically only associate with Starbucks for their pumpkin spice lattes and holiday drinks (aside from my matcha latte of course), so I thought this made sense.

Starting off with chocolate syrup, it's simple and a basic in mocha based drinks. You can also drizzle it over ice cream, mocha frappucinos, brownies, and other desserts!


  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 6 tablespoons of cocoa powder

  • pinch of salt

Begin by sifting your cocoa powder to make sure there are no lumps.

Once sifted, mix together your cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and water. Put over medium heat while stirring consistently. Let it continue to come to a boil for around another 5-10 minutes. The mixture will be liquidy but will thicken once it's cooled down! You can store this in the fridge.

IMPORTANT: I'm fortunate enough to be able to connect with everyone on here through baking and food but there are also many important issues going on that needs attention. Continue to learn, educate yourself, and grow.
