Talking Irish Cream Coffee Syrup (non-alcoholic)

I was addicted to Starbucks Irish Cream Nitro Cold Brew and it was getting expensive. Plus, I like hot drinks in winter. I looked at several recipes for homemade Irish cream syrup and tried this one. It's DELICIOUS. A fraction of the cost of buying bottles of flavored syrup and no preservatives.

I changed the recipe a tad. I boil the water and sugar, add the cocoa powder, and boil again. Then I let the syrup cool a tad before adding the extracts. Boiling the extracts goes against everything I know about cooking with extracts. I don't add the sweetened condensed milk as I make lattes.

If you want it to taste like an Irish Cream latte at a coffee shop, add about 1.5 ounces of syrup to a large (16-20 ounce) latte. I always order my lattes with 1/2 the usual sweetener so I use about 3/4 of an ounce of this syrup to make myself a 20 ounce latte. I have a 1 ounce shot glass that I use to measure syrup.

ETA a dusting of unsweetened cocoa powder on top is perfection.
