Unsweetened Cocoa

Tip of the Day

I get asked many times about what exactly unsweetened cocoa is. It is 100% cocoa and contains no sugar and is therefore NOT sweet. It can come in a powdered form or in chocolate squares.

Many recipes call for the unsweetened chocolate in ounces. You can either use the chocolate squares, which are usually in 1 ounce squares or you can use the powdered version.

If you use the powdered version you will need 3 level tablespoons of cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon of shortening or oil to equal 1 ounce of Unsweetened Baking Chocolate.

Great tip! I didn't know that (or didn't remember) about the conversion for baking chocolate...thanks! :)
