Notes

*Cacao, cacao nibs, and cocoa powder all come from the cacao bean. Cacao is the raw, unprocessed form of the bean vs. cocoa, which has been processed and sometimes sweetened. Although cocoa is more affordable, it does lose many of the nutritional benefits through processing. If you are using cocoa powder, choose one where the only ingredient is ‘cocoa’.
