      There is a clear and a dark version. The dark version is made by
      maceration, while the clear version is made by macerating and then
      redistilling.
      Here is a version using cocoa powder which is readily available.

      Creme de cacao:
      1 litre neutral spirit (60%abv)
      1 cup of cocoa powder (100g)
      1tsp vanilla extract
      2 cup of sugar
      1 litre of distilled water
      1tsp glycerine (optional)

      For a dark version -
      Make a sugar syrup.
      In a large jar combine neutral spirit, cocoa powder and vanilla.
      Add sugar syrup when cool.
      Macerate (steep) for 1 month.

      For a clear version -
      Macerate cocoa powder and vanilla extract in neutral spirit and
      redistill.
      Dilute to 30%abv for a Creme de cacao liqueur or 40%abv for a
      Chocolate Vodka.
      Add sugar to taste - 1 tbsp sugar/litre for a clear Chocolate vodka
      while 1-11/2 cups of sugar/litre for a clear Cocoa Liqueur (30%abv).
      The glycerine is for a smooth mouth-feel.
