Top Dutch-Process Cocoa Powder Recipes

Treat yourself to culinary-grade cocoa sure to elevate confections from the very first batch to the not-so-bitter end

Decorating a chocolate cake made with Dutch-Process Cocoa Powder

If other lesser cocoa powders have left a bitter taste in your mouth (as they often tend to), allow our Dutch Process Cocoa Powder to give it a go. Our richly flavored cocoa is known to smooth any already decadent dessert into something truly luxurious because it’s undergone alkalization while retaining high-fat content (>22-24%) and doesn’t skimp on flavor.

This cocoa powder is the product for the master pâtissier, or just the home baker looking to add a little luxury to the everyday. And if it sounds like something that could enrich your recipes, you just might want to check out some of our favorites, which we’ve conveniently listed for you here. Oh, fudge yes.
