    Just curious has anyone tried this? I have before but it is very gritty and just doesn't taste right to me. If you have tried it is there a secret that I am missing?
    Thanks

    I always use margarine or butter instead of the oil.

    Kim, I've done this before. I always melt it on the stove. Just warm it enough to get the cocoa and sugar to blend together well. Then I will let it cool a little bet. This is for recipes that are all chocolate. Like chocolate cake or cookies. It taste the same to me.
