Description & Details

ChefShop's Cocoa Powder ( 22% to 24% Cocoa Butter )

2.2 lbs/1 kg  - Dutch

Formerly known as Pernigotti Cocoa Powder


As Seen in Saveur100 and Chocolatier Mag, a favorite for years!

Get ready to make the best brownies, the best chocolate cake, and the best cookies known to any oven on the planet! This cocoa powder will make gelato and ice cream superb. 

We have now gone directly to the original producer of Pernigotti Cocoa Powder - whom we have known for over 15 years. As a result, the cocoa butter content is back to 22% to 24% - where it really should be to get that rich, chocolaty flavor. And as always, it's with real vanilla (not vanillan)

As seen in Saveur Magazine (Saveur 100, 2011) and Chocolatier Magazine.

ingredients: cocoa powder, vanilla 

Don't be fooled. If your friends rave about the unsweetened cocoa powder called "Pernigotti cocoa", this is the Cocoa Powder they are talking about. The other Pernigotti cocoa (in the other packaging) is not the same.... the cocoa in the other packaging has "flavour" added - otherwise known as *vanillan* or artificial vanilla, and the cocoa butter content is lower! PLUS the other cocoa butter content is not up to that critical 22-24%. We have the original formula -- the real deal!
This dark, unsweetened cocoa powder is in a class unto itself. They have removed less fat from our cocoa (resulting in a 22-24% fat content), which results in a more intense and immediate chocolate flavor. Pernigotti Cocoa Powder is Dutch processed and has a touch of ground vanilla bean. Our regulars know what a great cocoa this is!

"I've used this cocoa for years ... I just love it. Williams Sonoma doesn't have it online (or in their stores) I picked you."" Thanks, D.

Preparation and General Uses of Cocoa Powder

ChefShop Cocoa Powder is ready to satisfy in drinks and desserts, like a rich Chocolate Sorbet or Super Dense Chocolate Brownies. Buy unsweetened cocoa powder and add with sugar (to taste) to hot milk, and the aroma will transport you to breezy autumn days in the Piazza della Signoria. 


Hot Cocoa Recipe

This is a classic hot cocoa recipe - perfect if made with a rich, high-fat, unsweetened cocoa powder like ChefShop Cocoa Powder.

3/4 cup ChefShop Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 cups whole milk OR 2 cups whole milk and 1/2 cup whole cream
1/4 teaspoons fine Trapani Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon Heilala Vanilla Extract


1. Mix sugar, 1/2 & 1/2, cocoa powder and salt together in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture gets to just below boiling and the sugar has dissolved. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Blend and serve immediately.
