Notes

A note about raw cacao powder versus cocoa powder. Raw cacao is stronger, so you need to use less. It has a lot of health benefits, including iron and magnesium. Cocoa powder is the traditional chocolate baking ingredient. However, it's been processed so it no longer has any nutrition benefits. I vote for raw cacao powder always. Eat your chocolate and get that iron and magnesium into your diet!
