After Midnight Chocolate Glaze

1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1/4 cup water
1/4 t. cider vinegar
1/8 t. salt
1 T. coffee liqueur (optional)
2 t. vanilla

In a small saucepan, place the maple syrup, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, whisk in the cocoa powder, water, vinegar, and salt, and cook the mixture an additional 3 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the coffee liqueur (if using) and vanilla. Set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes to slightly thicken. Use as a glaze over cakes, desserts, fruit, or non-dairy frozen desserts.

Yield: 3/4 cup
