The Very best cocoa powder you’ll ever use!

I swear by Fry’s cocoa powder for every chocolate recipe. No other brand gets the richness that Fry’s does. I would recommend this cocoa powder 100%!

of course the recipe works with any other brand as well, however, I truly think no other brand gets such a deep chocolate flavour.

The Main Steps: Baking on the stovetop

This recipe makes for such rich brownies only eating one or two will be more than enough! There is quite a lot of butter and a whole cup of cocoa powder! that is exactly how chocolatey these are 🙂

The major difference in this recipe’s procedure is that much of the mixing is in a large pot on the stovetop rather than a mixing bowl on the table. This is due in part because the cocoa being a whole cup ( a lot for a recipe) will mix into the other ingredients more smoothly with the gentle catalyst of heat from the stove top. Mixing on the stove in a large saucepan also minimizes any wasted batter from transferring to mixing bowls. We want all the batter after-all!
