Cocoa powder has often been used as a substitute in cooking to give an item the flavoring of chocolate. Cocoa liquid extract offers that same ability in a highly concentrated form. This makes it easy to store and easy to use because less is more when it comes to this extract.
Rather than storing tubs of cocoa powder, small bottles of cocoa liquid extract can offer the same amount of flavor. Less is added of the extract to a recipe too, so there is less mess to clean up later. Cocoa liquid extract can flavor a variety of food and beverage items:
- Milk-Based Chocolate Beverages
- Mousses, Puddings, Chocolate Cheesecakes, & Other Dessert Items
- Brownie & Cake Mixes
- Ice Cream & Ice Cream Cakes
- Alcoholic Beverages & Chocolate Liqueurs
- Confectionary Candies
- Chocolate Sauces
Compared to chocolate, cocoa liquid extract has a creamier flavor that is more mild. It is a great substitute for chocolate flavoring for those that have a milder palate.
