Mimi's Magnificent Brownies

Mimi is a neighbor of ours and she developed this wonderful brownie recipe with our Silly Cow Farms Cocoa:

1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup Silly Cow Farms Cocoa
1 stick of butter (1/4 lb.)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup flour
2 eggs
1 cup nuts, chopped

Combine sugar, cocoa and butter in a saucepan. Stir on medium heat until melted and thoroughly combined. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs and vanilla, add chocolate mixture and mix well. Add flour and nuts, mix thoroughly, pour into greased 8X8-inch pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minites or until done. When cooled to room temperature, dust with powdered sugar.


Hot Cocoa

A hot cup of cocoa is a wonderful joy, especially with friends or as a relaxing drink after a full day. A cup of cocoa is much lower in caffeine than either coffee or tea. Where a cup of cocoa on average has 6 milligrams of caffeine per cup, coffee has 90 and tea has 68. Our cocoa is specially formulated so that it does not contain sodium, lactose or cholesterol and it is made with kosher organic cocoa imported from Brazil. Because of our formulation, Silly Cow Farms Cocoa can be used in all kinds of baking, drinking or confection recipes.

For a great cup of cocoa, place two heaping teaspoons of cocoa in a mug, pour hot liquid (water or milk) half way up the mug. Stir until dissolved, then pour the rest of the liquid in the cup and enjoy.

You can use water or milk with our cocoa. If you prefer milk, we recommend 2% low fat; it gives the cocoa the right amount of body, taste and keeps the total fat and calories to a minimum.

Heavenly Banana Smoothie

In a blender, combine one cup of ice and one cup nonfat plain yogurt. Blend until ice is smooth. Add one medium banana, two tablespoons of vanilla and two tablespoons of Silly Cow Farms Cocoa. Blend the entire mixture again until dissolved.

Makes two cups. As an added delight, sprinkle nutmeg or Silly Cow Farms Cocoa on top.
