This cocoa powder has been alkalized to the extreme, producing a dark, purplish black cocoa that makes for an impressive black-as-coal baked good. This extreme alkalization neutralizes the natural bitterness, removing some of its chocolate flavor and a lot of its butter fat(10-12%).

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” -Charles M. Schulz

We recommend replacing 25-50% of the standard “Dutch“ cocoa in a recipe with black onyx. Using this ratio will produce darker, rich tasting baked goods without losing the moisture. If still too dry, you can increase the fat content by adding more shortening, butter, egg yolk or changing to a heavier milk; whichever applies to your particular recipe. The fat content of Black Onxy Cocoa Powder is 10-12%.
