Cathy had asked about how I used the grounds. You can use the grounds after a brewing (or even two) in smoothies, brownies, etc. When I added the grounds to brownies I just added them in addition to everything else in the brownie recipe...so I still used the cocoa that was called for. The grounds lend a dense chocolate flavor and a nutty texture. We liked the brownies very much!
I haven't used them in a smoothie yet - I think they would be good in a banana smoothie.

I'm sure there are more ways to use them. It has been hot here of late and I haven't brewed any chocolate lately. When I do, I definitely save the grounds for other uses. I think they'd be really great in something like scones, so that will likely be my next effort.
I hope that helps!
