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.

Looks great! Thank you for sharing. My daughter loves the added syrups to her coffee so I'll get her to make this.

I made some this afternoon, then had my resident Starbuck's barista make me a latte when she got home from work. Yum!

Just curious - why do you boil the syrup twice? (Instead of adding the cocoa powder to the sugar and water in the beginning. I don't add extracts on the heat either, but just curious about the cocoa.)

I have no idea. I just made a double batch but next time I won't boil it again.
