Natural cocoa is quite strong, but Dutched Cocoa Powder has a smooth and mellow taste perfect for desserts and hot cocoa. This Dutched Cocoa Powder is extremely high-quality, with a 22-25% fat content, for the higher the butter fat content, the richer the taste. This Dutch chocolate cocoa powder should not be reserved for just desserts though. It is also an excellent way to add depth to chili, or if you make chili too hot, a little cocoa powder helps tone it down. Our Ancho chiles and Dutched Hot Cocoa are a perfect match to make a deliciously dark chili. When baking, substitute cocoa for unsweetened baking chocolate squares in any recipe, replace 1 ounce chocolate with 3 tablespoons cocoa plus 1 tablespoon shortening or oil. To make one cup hot cocoa, mix 2-3 teaspoons cocoa powder with 2-3 teaspoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add a few drops of water and mix into a paste.Add 8 ounces milk to the paste and heat. That's easy instant gratification!
