4hrs 15mins
1 quart

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 14 cups sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 34 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Cook sugar in dry saucepan without stirring until it begins to melt.
  2. Over very low heat, stir occasionally with a fork and continue cooking until all sugar is melted and it's just starting to turn a very light caramel brown (not dark brown).
  3. Add water - it will bubble and sizzle a lot! Use caution and cook and whisk constantly over very low heat until caramel is dissolved in the water.
  4. Whisk in cocoa and salt until dissolved.
  5. Transfer to a bowl to cool, stir it occasionally.
  6. Stir in vanilla then chill about 2 hours.
  7. Freeze in your ice cream maker then transfer to your freezer to harden.
