For the past few years I have been using Nielsen-Massey Vanilla but had never tried their Pure Chocolate Extract. Well, until now! This extract is very versatile in the kitchen and once you have it, you will find all different kinds of ways to use it.
Crafted from the finest cocoa beans, the Pure Chocolate Extract embodies the uninhibited depth and flavor of dark chocolate. This extract is ideal for adding extra layers of this divine flavor to any recipe with chocolate as the base. Also, use it to add subtle distinction to a wide range of dishes, including beverages, desserts, sauces, chilis and other spicy foods. This extract pairs exceptionally well with chile peppers, tomatoes, legumes and, naturally, vanilla.
1 Tbs. Chocolate Extract = 1 Tbs. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 Tbs. Chocolate Extract + 1 tsp. Sugar = ½ oz. Semi-sweet Chocolate.
So, now for the taste-test. For once...our brownies had a decadent and pure chocolate taste! It wasn't overly chocolatey at all. They had a richness to them that left you craving for more! Matter of fact, the family demolished that pan of brownies in record time!
I am so glad that I have this bottle of Pure Chocolate Extract in my pantry now. With the holidays coming and baking season upon us, I am sure I will be reaching for it often. Love it!
