Ingredient Spotlight: Cocoa

Shares 0

I am looking forward to this Ingredient Spotlight!  Cocoa means one thing – chocolate goodies!

Unless, of course, you’re making Cincinnati chili, which has cocoa in it, but doesn’t taste chocolatey at all.

Here are a few of my favorite cocoa recipes:

Now it’s your turn.  Bring on the cocoa goodness!  Link up any recipe on your blog that uses cocoa.  It doesn’t have to be a recent post, just be sure to link directly to your recipe, not just the main page of your blog.  I only ask that you include a link back to Eat at Home in your post.  You can link directly to this post or use the button in the sidebar.

Remember to visit the other links and leave a comment.  You’ll make that blogger’s day!

  1. I want to try the blue velvet cupcakes, but I’ll have to make them red and root for the Cardinals 😉

  2. Yay, I can link up! I love your ingredient spotlight series- such great ideas are shared.

  3. Sorry, I couldn’t help but put a savory dish up here! The black bean butter was really, really good! Thanks!

  4. Here is a good, easy, and quick cookie recipe. It is a little healthier than some because it uses vegetable oil. I often use the substitute of 3 T. cocoa plus 1 T. fat in place of 1 sq. of unsweetened chocolate in recipes as I always have cocoa on hand. You can use any nut that you want in this recipe. If you aren’t a nut fan, try coconut or chopped dried fruit.

    Chocolate Drops

    2 eggs
    1/2 c. plus 2 T. salad oil
    1 t. vanilla
    1 c. sugar
    1 3/4 c. flour
    1/2 t. baking soda
    1/2 t. baking powder
    1/2 t. salt
    6 T. cocoa
    1/2 c. chopped, toasted nuts

    Beat eggs. Beat in oil and vanilla. Beat in sugar. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Stir well and add to sugar mixture, mixing well. Add nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonsful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees 8-10 minutes. Makes 4 doz.

    I am looking forward to trying the yummy sounding recipies linked above.
