Good Cocoa Powder??

hpman247 | Nov 14, 2009 04:14 AM

I saw Ina Garten make this amazing brownie pudding which I replicated to the delight of my friends, even the ones who don't like dessert!

Here is the recipe

Well my question is about the cocoa powder. I used basic Hershey's brand but I know it's not the best, only the best that Kroger had. Earlier this morning when I went in (open 24 hrs), they had some Ghiradelli Baking Chocolate mix and it said "with Cocoa Powder." I would assume that Ghiradelli would be better than Hersheys. But do you all have any idea if this is legit cocoa powder or something that I should stay away from?

I have seen sell very good cocoa powder, as they do vanilla beans btw. I always buy them from the JR mushroom place on But back to the powder; their quantity is too large. I believe it's a kilo and thats ridiculous for me to buy that much.
