Recipe ingredients and directions:
The other night I wanted to make some mocha but didn't have any
chocolate syrup. So I made some. This is what I did.
1 cup Dutch process cocoa
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla
Combine cocoa and sugar in a heavy saucepan. Slowly whisk in water.
Heat to boiling and boil at least 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
Watch as it's going to want to boil over. Take from heat, stir in
vanilla. Cool. Strain into container (I used a mason jar).
Can't give you a recipe on the mocha. I tried varying ratios of
coffee-brewed-so-dark-it-sucked-in-light, milk, sugar, chocolate
syrup and ice, but didn't end up with anything truly satisfactory
(although I did get extremely wired).
