Belcolade Real Belgium Chocolate (Cocoa) 1 lb

A fine cocoa imported from Spain.

SKU: PP364

This is magnificent cocoa! Once you try it, you'll never go back!

It's as rich and intense as Ramstadt Breda Rich Dark Cocoa but it is very distinctive, complex, and with mellow undertones. We don't use it all the time -- it's our "go-to" special occasion cocoa -- but when we use it, it's fantastic.

  • About three times the cocoa butter of most store brands, 22/24%. Cocoa butter gives richness and flavor and mellows the harshness found in cocoa beans.
  • Produced in Europe and imported into the US by a Spanish company for high-end restaurants and bakeries.
  • Compares to fine chocolate in your baking.

You can spend more, but you won't find better. There is a reason that the best pastry chefs, bakers, and candy makers in the world choose this cocoa. If the cost doesn't matter, try this cocoa. It's that good.

Outstanding flavor

When I first opened the package, I couldn't get over the difference just in color from the Hershey's I used to use. Then I tasted it. No comparison. I now only use the Belcolade. No comparison, and when I am making an Ina Garten recipe, it makes a big difference.

Rich and delicious

The Belcolade Cocoa is deep, rich and fragrant. It has never failed producing a superior product that everyone raves about!

Belcolade real Belguim (Cocoa)

The taste difference when using this product in baking is worth the cost. The only problem, if it is a problem, is that once you use this cocoa for frosting a cake or making hot fudge topping is that nothing else compares to its richness and taste.
