Crème de cacao is a sweet chocolate liqueur flavored primarily by the cocoa bean and the vanilla orchid. It is normally made as a clear light syrup, however it is also available in a dark (caramel)-colored syrup, known as Dark Crème de cacao.

The alcoholic content of this liqueur can vary, but 20–25% ABV (40–50 proof (U.S.)) is common.
