Chocolate Espresso is a flavorful accompaniment to ice cream, fruit, or our favorite Bomboloni.
- 1/2 tablespoon instant espresso powder

- 1 1/2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 ounces bittersweet (60% cacao) chocolate, finely chopped
Combine espresso powder, 1/3 cup water, and corn syrup in a small heavy saucepan, and bring it to a boil, stirring.
