Is Baking Cocoa the same as cocoa powder? Yes.
Baking cocoa is the same as Natural Process cocoa powder, but designated baking cocoa due to the strong fudge like flavor perfect for dessert and baking recipes.
Baking Cocoa and cocoa powder being the same, is unsweetened organic chocolate liquor that has been pressed to remove the cocoa butter fat. In fact, up to 90% of the cocoa butter fat is pressed out of our Rainforest Baking Cocoa. After the cocoa butter is pressed out, a very dense and hard low fat chocolate disc called a cocoa cake remains. The cocoa cake is then ground up to produce our Rainforest Baking Cocoa which is a cocoa powder.

The Pure Hot Chocolate ExperienceUnsweetened Hot Chocolate made from this organic cacao powder. Make an original Aztec recipe with water, cinnamon, chili and honey. Or just add to hot milk and sweeten as you like to make thick, creamy hot chocolate the delicious European way. Chocolate is actually based on the Meso American word Xocolaltl (shoko' lot-all) which is an onomatopoeia (word that sounds like the meaning) of making the chocolate drink. Xoco (means bitter but also sounds like the frothing of the chocolate drink using a molinillo) and latl (means water but also sounds like pouring water from an earthenware vase or olla pot). So the word chocolate is based on the words the Aztecs used for making their glorious hot chocolate.

Hot chocolate options:
Our unsweetened dark hot chocolate is made from pure ground cacao solid chocolate with no sugar - make a slurry and then flavor with honey and spice. Serve frothy by whisking or shaking. It can be stored in the refrigerator once made (shake till frothy and pour).
We recommend using a mix of 1:1 cacao powder to raw brown sugar. Use a mix of 3 TBSP per 4 oz of milk. Serve frothy. It will take mixing to get the powder to suspend in the milk (this is due to raw cocoa butter). It tastes wonderful and is a real delight.
