In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, add the butter, heavy cream, corn syrup, brown sugar and salt.
Bring the mixture to a simmer. Simmer while stirring for 2 minutes.
Add the dark chocolate and stir until melted, about 1-2 minutes.
Once the chocolate melts, turn off the heat and whisk in the cocoa powder. Whisk until no lumps remain.
Turn on the heat back to low and simmer while whisking constantly until the sauce is glossy, less than 1 minute.
Turn off the heat and whisk in the vanilla extract.
Serve over ice cream or any other dessert. Enjoy!
