From one of the world’s most prestigious chocolate makers comes a powder that’s 100% cocoa, making it the perfect foundation for your gourmet drinks and desserts. Ground entirely from cocoa beans grown on Valrhona’s own plantations, the powder has a rich mahogany hue to match its intense chocolatey flavor. The beans were washed with potassium solution to neutralise their acidity, and since there's 0% added sugar, you’re free to adjust the sweetness yourself. Combine the powder with sugar and hot full fat milk to make an outstanding hot chocolate drink. Alternatively, add it to a number of dessert recipes, such as frosted cupcakes, chocolate ganache or dusting for truffles. Either way, this top-of-the-line ingredient will turn your recipes from great to outstanding.
