  • Small saucepan


  • 50 g (¼ cup) vegan butter
  • 4 tbsp cocoa powder

  • 100 ml dairy free milk - coconut milk compliments this best


  • In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, melt the butter on a low heat
  • Add the sugar and whisk together until combined
  • Tip in the cocoa powder and whisk together to form a thick paste
  • Turn up the heat to medium-high and add the milk
  • Whisk constantly until a smooth sauce is formed
  • Continue to whisk and heat the sauce for 6 minutes. It should be bubbling/simmering, but not boiling
