I used to be addicted to Starbucks hot mocha. When I was trying to cut back my calories (a mocha has about 500 calories), I started experimenting with creating my own. I use Hershey's 100% special dark cocoa along with Starbucks house blend and a little bit of Hershey's Carmel macchiato creamer to make it. You probably won't beilieve me unless you try it yourself. It tastes way better than Starbucks mocha with less than one fifth of the calories.

This is perfect for baking dessert, especially sugar free desserts. I used this when I was sugar free for 2 months and it was a life saver. It gave me my chocolate fill, but was a healthier alternative

Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Can is great for making the best hot chocolate ever! So much better than instant packets. This is also used in baking, like making a cake or brownies. I've added some to my smoothies as well to kick up the chocolate flavor a notch or 5.

I love the Hershey's Special dark cocoa powder. I use it for most of my chocolate desserts. Recently I used it to make my Coffee chocolate muffins. It turned out really yummy. I bought it at walmart and the pricing was really good. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for dark chocolate powder.

This made an amazing dark chocolate cake and frosting. My dad LOVES dark chocolate and he said this was almost too much. Which was my goal for the most part. I wanted to make the chocolaty-ist cake ever.

Intensely dark and rich cocoa powder! If you are a dark chocolate lover, you will absolutely love how smooth it is. No harsh aftertaste or bitterness. I love to add a bit of coffee to my cake batter to give it an extra kick. Very easy to use. Recommended to all the chocoholics out there!

Yummy!! I bought this product for the first time recently and I am so glad I did. I had bought the regular cocoa before and liked it too. The flavor is amazing! I would definitely recommend trying it if you like dark chocolate. I made no bake cookies with it and a frosting with it and they were both really good!
