In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and xanthan gum.
Slowly pour in the boiling water while whisking vigorously. Whisk until completely smooth.
Whisk in the vanilla paste and stevia extract.
Whisk in the vegetable glycerine. Pour into a jar or emptied/washed syrup bottle, seal tightly, and store in the fridge. If you feel like you can't whisk the mixture completely smooth, throw it into a blender and let it do its thang 😉
