Thanks, PF, but I am fine. I am going with the swiss cocoa for this along with bittersweet chocolate and semisweet chunks I think. I made a batch this morning and am just waiting for them to cool but so far I like the colour, rise and texture.

Also on tap is a couple of batches of my signature recipe as is in cake form. I may enter a competition for a black and white design and I am thinking of an old fashioned TV with an edible transfer of I Love Lucy! Who will get to eat this when I am done? No doubt the youth group - they are always happy to help out in that regard!

You can't get Hershey's? I CAN get it I just choose not to because I prefer Fry's. Want me to send you some?

I try to eat a banana every day. I need the potassium. You can freeze those bananas. The skin will turn black but the meat will stay fine. I have done it many times.

Thanks, everyone. I got some Hershey's today - guess I just never saw it because I always go for Fry's like Alix. So, I am going to make the same recipe using Fry's, Hershey's and my Swiss Process and see which batch I like better. Stay tuned....

My bet's on Fry's. I was disappointed in the Hershey's. Never tried any Swiss Process though.

Probably because it is DUTCH process . I get it from Costco. I do like Fry's. It is all I ever used really.

Hahahahaha!!! That's hilarious! Isn't Fry's dutch processed? I thought there was a discussion here about it a while ago. I'm pretty sure it is.

It probably is, though it doesn't say it on the can (that I could see anyway). The Dutch Process that I got was lighter in colour, more red actually, and quite a bit more expensive.
