7.5 oz - Cocoa Butter Chips
Cocoa butter is the natural, cream-colored vegetable fat extracted from cocoa beans during the proces of making chocolate and cocoa powder. For most eating chocolate, some cocoa butter is then added back to the mixture.
Cocoa butter is used to make chocolate, especially dark chocolate, smoother and creamier, and also more pourable for coating cakes, pastries and truffles. The higher the quality of cocoa bean the butter is extracted from, the better the cocoa butter will be.
Cocoa butter is also used to add smoothness and flavor to some other foods and also in making soaps and cosmetics.
*QUICK TIP* If you're looking to give your hot cocoa a richer mouthfeel, try stirring in 1/2-1 teaspoon of cocoa butter!
