  • 6 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
  1. Sprinkle gelatin onto 1 cup of the milk in a saucepan. Stir together the sugar and cocoa; add to the milk mixture in saucepan. Add the corn syrup. Over medium heat, bring mixture to a boil. Remove from heat.
  2. Add the butter and stir until melted. Blend in 3/4 cup milk and vanilla. Pour into a large bowl of an electric mixer. Chill mixture until almost set.
