OK brownie enthusiasts, here is your chance to get in on the ground floor of this exciting investment opportunity. :)

Paula and I have been cooking up a new avenue for chocolate. In case you had not guessed it by now, it involves brownies. Did I mention it was brownies?

Anyway, so I have been trying to figure out to effectively market something that has become a bit of a space hog, cocoa powder. If you have been following this chocolate endeavor closely, you know by now that cocoa powder is a byproduct of quality chocolate. We were selling this byproduct to a local ice cream shop, but cold weather has slowed sales at the shop, who knew? So at the moment we are sitting on 10 pounds of cocoa powder. That's not exactly an industrial scale glut, but it's much more than we use in a year.

So the challenge has been to come up with a good brownie recipe that:

#1, #2 and #3 - Uses cocoa powder
#4 - Is gooey (a definite must for anyone who knows brownies)
#5 - Is economical

I just cooked my second batch of this mix today, bringing it to friends for a tasting. We were happy with the first batch, let's see what the neighbors think. We are quite picky about our brownies.

So what makes them "triple chocolate"? I will tell you this much, and more, our triple chocolate is certainly unique, not available in stores near you.

#1 - You guessed it, Cocoa #2 - Dark chocolate chunks #3 - Cocoa nibs

I can pretty well guarantee you will not find cocoa nibs on the box label of any commercial brownie mix. Cocoa nibs are just small broken chunks of the cocoa bean. That's right, it's 100% dark chocolate. It also serves to give the brownie a crunch that you would get by adding nuts, but without the added cost.

I like the way that sounds.
