Black Magic Sauce

When you hear the name Black Magic you might think of something wicked like a witch or Halloween but its not wicked like that but it is wicked good.   I saw a recipe for a cake called Black Magic Cake and it called for Black Cocoa Powder, I didn't know that it  exists until I looked on Amazon and it was real.

The Black Cocoa Powder gets it color from Dutching, they add an alkalizing agent to natural cocoa powder helping with the color.  It also gives the cocoa powder a neutral pH, lower acidity, smoother in flavor and increase solubility.
When I made the sauce I thought it would be bitter no matter how much sugar I added to it because dark chocolate or a semi-sweet chocolate but I was really surprised. The cocoa powder itself is a really dark brown but once you mix with a liquid it turns black.
This sauce taste like a gooey fudgy brownie in a liquid form. Use this on ice cream, pancakes, waffle or mix it in some milk even your coffee.

    1. Of course, just use a 1/2 cup less of the Stevia.

  4. I didn't realize there was such a powder as well. The sauce appears to a great sauce to use for cooking. I am moving more toward natural cooking as well.
