Homemade Mocha Coffee Syrup

One of my indulgences is good coffee. Another is good flavoured coffee. Sometimes a freshly brewed mocha is just the thing, but buying them is out of the question - the last one I bought cost $4.70! And buying syrup - well I could but why would I, especially as this is MOO month.

No, this syrup is easy to make, tastes divine and costs around 70 cents to make! Best of all it's really quick, taking about 7 minutes from go to whoa, and it can be used straight away. If I'm out of syrup and want a moccacinno I can make the syrup in the time it takes for the coffee to brew - perfect!

Mocha Coffee Syrup
Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cups cocoa (sift it if it has lumps in it)
1 1/2 cups water
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method:
Warm all ingredients together in a small saucepan, stirring constantly until the sugar dissolves. Pour into a sterilized bottle and keep it in the fridge. Add a slug or two (or two tablespoons for those who don't do "slugs") to your freshly brewed coffee and enjoy!

I use this maple syrup jug to store the syrup because it has a great seal, but mainly because it looks pretty on the bench or table.

Why not make a batch now? You know you want to, so go ahead. I'll put the coffee on and have one with you :)
