Askinosie Chocolate®

Birchbox Breakdown

This ultrapure, unsweetened cocoa powder cuts to heart of our chocolate cravings. Sprinkle a hefty dose into everything from your double-fudge brownie recipe to hot chocolate. Your tastebuds won’t know that it’s fair trade, only delicious.

How it Works

Askinosie takes pains to source all of its cocoa beans directly from farmers. This unsweetened, non-alkalized cocoa powder is single origin, meaning all of the beans came from the same place: Davao, Philippines. The beans go through a rigorous quality-assurance process like no other, ensuring that your powder is prepped to perfection and totally pure.

How to Use

Use this ingredient wherever cocoa powder is called for in a baking recipe. Or, whip up the perfect batch of hot chocolate using this foolproof formula:

2 tbs. powder
2 tbs. sugar
1 ¼ c. hot milk or soymilk

Mix the powder and sugar in a cup, and slowly pour in the hot milk, whisking ingredients together and waiting for the clumps of cocoa powder to fully dissolve before sipping. 

Natural, non-alkalized, unsweetened cocoa powder.

Makes a Heavenly Hot Cocoa!

I received this sample in my Snowy Day box and forgot all about it until the temperatures fell into the 20's again yesterday. Used only 2 tablespoons to whip up a cup of hot cocoa after walking my dog in the wind this morning, and let me tell you, IT HITS THE SPOT! Not too sugary and not too thick. You will not want to go back to the grocery kind in those little packets you mix with hot water. I had to use skim milk, in a pinch, with a dash of cream and it was still delicious and better than the others. Pair it with one of the Three Tarts Gourmet Cinnamon Marshmallows and you'll feel like you died and went to heaven!

I live in WI so hot chocolate is a must, (especially when we hit -50 degrees) and the hot chocolate that this makes is awesome and you won't want to go back to Swiss Miss!

The Best!
Purchased

I bought this product on a whim since I didn't purchase the snow day box and I don't regret my purchase at all. This is by far one of the best cocoa powders I have purchased to date. Not only did I make hot chocolate, but I also used it in one of my green smoothies--delicious! Can't wait to try this powder in other recopies.

Perfect on a cold day

I received this in the Snow Day box and was so ready to try it. I made it as hot cocoa and it was so freaking good! I'm definitely going to be purchasing this in the future.

I repurchased this after finding it it my Snow day box -- found a recipe online. A cup and 1/4 of milk, dash of sea salt and at least three spoons of Askinosie cocoa -- warm slowly on the stove. My family LOVED it.

Makes a perfect cup of hot chocolate

This cocoa powder is delicious. I followed the recipe on the packet and made a perfect cup of rich, delicious hot chocolate. I would absolutely purchase this cocoa powder and look for additional chocolate in this brand. The gourmet marshmallows included in the winter box were the perfect topping!

Perfect for baking, hot chocolate, smoothies!
Purchased

This was a surprising treat to receive in the snow day box. I was so impressed I ordered some of the full size!

The cocoa is exactly that - cocoa - so it is versatile for baking. I made hot chocolate with it - and it wasn't too sweet because I could adjust it to my needs.

I also threw some into my green smoothies, I really enjoy a chocolate taste, but I wasn't looking for something sweet - it was the perfect touch! Highly recommend!
