* Timesaver Tip: Recipe can be prepared up to a day ahead and stored,

Note: Dutch-process cocoa (or "dutched cocoa'') has been treated with a
mild alkali, such as baking soda, to neutralize the natural acids present.
The alkali modifies the flavor and darkens the color. Dutch-process cocoa
is available at supermarkets, but any unsweetened cocoa powder may be used.
