    Mr-Mom's Note:

    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.

      Mike, you are THE man! This is awesome syrup! I had been trying unsuccessfully to mix my own mochas and this recipe has made it possible. Never again will I pay $4 for a coffee drink! Kudos to you for figuring the ratio out and many thanks!

      YUM! I am not using stars, as I made significant changes (Splenda), but I do think this is a 5 star recipe. So chocolatey! And, I much prefer this recipe to another recipe I tried involving cooking the ingredients together for a few minutes; this one has a cleaner chocolate taste. SO... I subbed equivalent Splenda, and used much less vanilla (wimpy me!) I actually found my concoction extremely chocolatey and not quite sweet enough, so I add more sweetner to my cup. Love this stuff! (I was prompted to seek this recipe because *bucks stopped carrying their sf chocolate/mocha syrup.)

      Just made this. Mine is not thick like you'd expect of a syrup. Does it thicken while it cools? I followed the recipe almost exactly. I didn't have imitation vanilla so I used a splash of the good stuff. I don't think that should affect consistency. Tastes good though. Do you store it in the fridge?
