about this item

Sweet ground cocoa. Rare red Dutch process cocoa powder for baking & hot chocolate. Collection Etienne: Artisan made chocolate. Est. 1868. San Francisco. Peanut free. Gluten free. Collection Etienne Grand Cacao is a truly distinctive beverage, It's the kind of hot chocolate folks enjoyed in the 1920s, when Guittard was located at 139 Main Street in downtown San Francisco. Premium Collection Etienne chocolate, made from the best cacao beans, is finely ground and added into exquisite, old-fashioned, Dutch process cocoa powder. This truly artisan hot chocolate combines intense chocolate flavor, full bodied, creamy texture, rich, red-brown, dark chocolate color and comforting, homemade pudding-like, baked-chocolate aromas. Made in a peanut and gluten free facility. Some settling of contents may occur during shipping.

Grand Cacao Substitutions: To substitute Grand Cacao for unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder: replace unsweetened cocoa and an equal amount of sugar with Grand Cacao. For example, if the recipe calls for 1/2 cup Dutch process cocoa and 1 cup sugar, use instead 1 cup Grand Cacao (in place of 1/2 cup cocoa and 1/2 cup of the sugar) and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar. Preparation: For each serving, combine 4 tablespoons Grand Cacao and 1 cup milk in saucepan. Heat on medium-low with constant whisking until hot but not boiling. Pour into cups and serve immediately. Top with fresh whipped cream or, for an Aztec-style beverage, add a stick of cinnamon or a pinch of chili powder to the milk before warming. Alternatively, combine 4 tablespoons Grand Cacao and 1 cup milk in microwave safe mug. Heat on high for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes, stopping and stirring at 30-second intervals to dissolve hot chocolate. Heat to desired temperature.

I ordered this for Christmas last year and we enjoyed it very much. However the tin of drinking Chocolate we received this year is awful; it is gritty and chalky no matter how I try to prepare it. It even leaves a chalky sensation in your mouth after drinking it. In desperation I tried straining it,...see moreof the reviewer's review

If you're looking for a less sweeter, more rich dark chocolate flavor then you will love this. I only use 2 spoons of the mix instead of the instructed 4 spoons and I top it off work whipped cream to give it that sweet touch. Very delicious, one can will last you a long time.see moreof the reviewer's review

It's not labeled as dark chocolate, but it sure tastes and looks like it. I wont be using it for drinking like I thought I would. Maybe using it in some recipes would be better.
