What do you do with... cocoa?


Is it cocoa or chocolate you like most?

There is a huge difference between these two and a huge difference too between one piece of chocolate and the other.
The most terrible chocolate bar I ate was over 30 years ago in Bulgaria. This was for sure not chocolate. The next nad chocolate bar we had was the supermarket Spar it's own brand. It tasted like soap.

If it comes to cocoa it's not different.
Read the ingredients and you find out yourself. Chocolate or cocoa with 1% chocolate, no fat, etc. In the Netherlands it's not even allowed to use the name chocolate if it doesn't contain a certain amount of cocoa.

For sure each country has it's own idea and taste developed if it comes to the taste of chocolate but a cake or pie colored brown with a chemical smell is not made with real cocoa or chocolate.

Cocoa

We mainly use it for: hot chocolate, the chocolate vegan cake, tiramisu and chocolate custard or pudding. A bit cocoa works great as a topping.

Chocolate

We eat it just so. It's less expensive as cocoa and comes in many different kinds. Personally I like the dark chocolate most.
You can use it too to make your own chocolate butter. Way healthier as the sold trans- and palmfats which harm your health.

The best chocolate ice cream I ever ate was in Hungary a few years ago. This was pure dark chocolate.

I made chocolate waffles a few times. It wasn't a great succes. The chocolate taste was disappointing. I made them without this chemical stuff on it. This photo is from the book "Mon meilleur ami s'appelle chocolat"

Dark chocolate is the easiest chocolate to melt.
You can add cornflakes, granula, peanuts or raisins to it and make a fast snack out of it.
Pieces of chocolate can be used too to make a hot chocolate but I prefer the real cocoa (which is not Nesquick) more.

Good idea I have also added cocoa, Nesquick and toddy to a pancake, of course it is not pure chocolate so it does not taste that much. Good ideas in your post. @wakeupkitty

Buena idea tambien le he agregado cacao, Nesquick y toddy a una panqueca, claro no es chocolate puro por eso no sabe tanto. Buenas ideas en tu post.

You can try them out. Some eat nesquick on the pancake but not stirred through the dough. 💕

En mi región se siembra el cacao, la planta. Me han regalado el fruto y yo lo preparo en casa, que es un proceso parecido al del café. El cacao de mi país es muy sabroso.
Hay muchos tipos de chocolate tienes razón, los de acá, son estupendos.
Gracias por tu publicación y compartir tu historia con el cacao o chocolate. @wakeupkitty.

Cocoa, the plant, is planted in my region. They have given me the fruit and I prepare it at home, which is a process similar to that of coffee. Cocoa from my country is very tasty.
There are many types of chocolate, you are right, the ones here are great.
