Iron Mike's Mocha Syrup - Chocolate Syrup for Espresso Drinks

“You know that chocolate syrup they squirt in the cup at the local coffee shop when you order a mocha? Then when you try to make one at home, the chocolate syrup from a brown squeeze bottle just doesn't cut it? WELL - this is your lucky day...You just found the closest thing to *bucks mocha syrup you can make - at a FRACTION of the cost of using their mocha powder. I know it sounds simple, but it took about 3 months to get it as spot on as possible. Be it known that I used Hershey's Cocoa and Dutch cocoa when making this...(I own no stock...) I usually add a cup of Torani's Vanilla Syrup to this recipe - OR a cup of liquid French Vanilla Coffee Creamer - because I like Vanilla Mochas, and that does the trick for me.”
