View Full Version : Coconut butter for chocolate?
03-27-2010, 11:28 PM
I ran out of coconut oil last week and when I came home from grocery shopping I found I grabbed coconut butter instead of oil. :rolleyes: If I warm this up a bit (so it's a liquid), can it be used to make raw chocolate? Easter's coming. ;)

They are the same thing. The only different is that the liquid (coconut oil) is the processed one. Coconut butter as long as its unrefined and not heated is raw and always solid unless it gets very warm sitting at room temperature.

I've used both, sometimes mixing them. The coconut butter gives the chocolate a different texture and flavor. Either way, it is all good. :)

Maybe drolemil means Artisana coconut butter, which has the coconut meat in it as well. I've never tried it, but I think it would work. The coconut taste will be stronger, and there will be coconut pieces as well, most likely (smooth, but not as smooth as coconut oil). Let us know how it turns out!
If it's not the thing with the meat in it (most likely, if it's not Artisana) then yes, it's totally the same thing ;)

Yes, it is Artisana, so there are coconut chunks.
Thank you all, I'll have to give it a try soon. :D
