From Fight Back With Food

The soy milk used in this recipe is the type most commonly found in supermarkets, and is slightly sweetened with malted corn and barley extract. If you use a completely unsweetened soy milk (such as the type often found in Chinese markets), increase the brown sugar to taste.

  • 1/3 cup cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups soy milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
