Product Overview

  • All Natural

The deep, rich flavor of Ghirardelli Premium Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa creates the intense chocolate experience bakers prize - and the pleasurable moments chocolate-lovers cherish. The cocoa is alkalized through the Dutch process for a product perfect for either baking or chocolate beverages. We then blend just the right amount of sugar and real vanilla, and add real chocolate for an intensely rich and perfectly balanced chocolate taste. Ghirardelli — Moments of Timeless Pleasure.

Suggested Use

Unsweetened Cocoa Substitution: For each 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa, use 1 cup of Sweet Ground Chocolate & Cocoa and decrease the amount of sugar the recipe calls for by 1/2 cup.

This makes awesome brownies using the recipe on the can. Flavorful and chewy. I've also made moist chocolate cake with this. It's a bit on the pricy side but the quality can't be beat.
