The Scoop on Black Cocoa
Black food coloring? So yesterday (what even is that stuff?). We say out with the old, artificial, and flavorless, and in with the new, flavorful, all-natural way to achieve rich, dark chocolate color in your chocolate baking and cooking.
Meet Modern Mountain Black Cocoa.
Prized for its daringly dark color and full-bodied flavor, black cocoa is a true luxury for chocolate lovers. Darken your desserts to your heart's desire. Intensify the taste of your cakes, cookies, and frostings.
Best used in tandem with other Dutch-process cocoas, substitute black cocoa 1:1 for other cocoas in your recipe. But a word of caution for cocoa connoisseurs: start by substituting sparingly—this is our darkest, deepest, most decadent cocoa.
Some of our team's black cocoa favorites include:
- Chocolate sandwich cookies
- "Death by Chocolate" cake
- Black buttercream frosting
- Halloween treats
