GIVEAWAY: Scharffen Berger… Long Name, Great Chocolate

LOL!  I couldn’t think of a good title for this post, I just kept thinking, “Man! They have a long name.” So, there ya’ go. :-)sfb-cbnibby

Scharffen Berger Chocolate is a more expensive line, but it is really yummy!  I was sent some cocoa powder and baking bars to use in whichever recipe I chose.  I went with:




Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Melt the Scharffen Berger chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in a stainless steel bowl set over simmering water. Be sure that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl. When the chocolate is melted, remove from the heat.

CocoaPowder_hb_sweetenedStir together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Set aside. Using a standard mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high speed until creamy. Slowly add the sugar and mix until the mixture is completely smooth and soft. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl as needed. Beat in the salt and the vanilla, and then add the melted chocolate and beat on low speed until incorporated. Add the milk and beat until combined. Finally, add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until incorporated.

Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Bake the cookies until they are just barely firm on top when lightly touched but are still very soft underneath, about 7 minutes. They will get firmer as they cool. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool. They will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.

OMG! YUM!  I really don’t know what else to say, it is darn good. :-)  My husband and I went to the Dominican Republic years ago and watched the whole cocoa making process then tried some.  You just can’t beat fresh and handmade…. Scharffen Berger comes pretty darn close!

Two lucky winners will each receive 1 baking bar and 1 cocoa powder! (20 dollar value each)
