  8. Allow to cool and then sprinkle with the icing sugar.
  9. Serve with a dollop the quark mixture.
  10. This is also great served with some fresh berries
Syn value of cocoa powder can vary from brand to brand. The three brands I use are 100% cocoa powder (not Dutch Processed) and are 1 tbs for 20 calories (1 syn).

You should always double check the syn values of items which are synned, as brands can differ.
