Black cocoa powder is the primary color ingredient for both the frosting and cupcakes. So what is it and what makes it different? To simply put it, black cocoa is a Dutch-processed cocoa that is heavily alkalized. And because of this, it packs an intense chocolate flavor without bringing any of the bitterness, but also giving its rich black color. It’s got a very unique flavor and is what is used in Oreo cookies!
