The history of chocolate can be traced to the ancient Olmec, Mayan and Aztec civilizations. Consumed for many centuries as a ceremonial bitter drink, chocolate was thought to have energetic and (by some) aphrodisiac properties. Cocoa powder, which was only invented in 1828, is rich in minerals not found in cocoa butter, including calcium, copper, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. Kras Cocoa Powder is unsweetened with a bold milk chocolate flavor and aroma. Perfect for making homemade candy and fudge, Kras Cocoa Powder will add chocolatey goodness to homemade chocolate cakes, cookies, cupcakes and pancakes. Our cocoa powder is just the ingredient you’ll need to dust homemade chocolate, cakes and desserts like Tiramisu. If your recipe calls for baking soda, this is the cocoa powder for you! Kras Cocoa Powder also makes wonderful hot cocoa with warm milk, cinnamon or vanilla, and sweetened to taste. As the most established brand of chocolates and confections in Southeastern Europe, Kras master chocolatiers have been bringing sweetness and joy into the daily lives of chocolate lovers in since our founding in 1911.
