So, what is chocolate liquor-processed with alkali?

Chocolate liquor processed with alkali, also known as "Dutch cocoa", is a versatile and flavorful ingredient that is commonly used in baking and cooking. It is made by pulverizing roasted cocoa beans into a smooth, liquid form, and then treating it with alkaline chemicals to reduce its acidity. This process not only creates a darker color but also produces a milder and smoother taste, with a slightly earthy, nutty flavor profile. Chocolate liquor processed with alkali is commonly used in making cakes, brownies, and other baked goods, as well as hot chocolate mixes and ice creams. Its unique taste and texture make it a favorite among both amateur and professional chefs alike.
