Top Customer Reviews
An earlier reviewer commented that Dutched cocoas will produce more flavor: Dutching is an alkalizing treatment used to bring the cocoa taste forward. All Dutch-processed cocoas are not the same, however, and have different pH levels as well as dramatically different flavors. For more on this see Rose Levenbaum's "Cake Bible" or hit the Cook's Illustrated website. Rose recommends Green & Black's on her blog, and Cook's Illustrated recommends Callebaut as the best cocoa they reviewed (they did find Droste to be the best supermarket brand), although of the three cocoas I suggest only Callebaut was included in the Cook's Illustrated taste test.
You can add sugar instead of stevia if you want, but why not save the calories for a second cup?
Dutch-Process Cocoa or Alkalized Unsweetened Cocoa Powder:
Has been treated with an alkali to neutralize its natural acidity. Because it is neutral and does not react with baking soda, it must be used in recipes calling for baking powder, unless there are other acidic ingredients in sufficient quantities used. It has a reddish-brown color, mild flavor, and is easy to dissolve in liquids.
Has a complex chocolate flavor while the Dutch-process is darker and more mellow. Its intense flavor makes it well suited for use in brownies, cookies and some chocolate cakes. When natural cocoa (an acid) is used in recipes calling for baking soda (an alkali), it creates a leavening action that causes the batter to rise when placed in the oven.
recipe for a nice hot chocolate:
50% skimmed milk (1,5%)
50% milk (3,5%)
heat milk, then add
2 large spoons of cacao (size of spoons depends on amount of milk)
1 smaller spoon of unrefined brown sugar.
Stir, and you're done.
color should be dark brown - if not dark enough, add more to your taste.
Better than any ready made hot chocolate
Just Droste, water, and touch of sugar. It's corn-free too.
