ex-Gatherer, ex-SWAMI - plain old O-nonnie Autumn: Harvest, success.
Cocoa butter is the natural fat removed from cocoa beans when cocoa powder is being produced, right? And it's most often seen as an ingredient in emollient cosmetics and in confectionery, right?
So it obviously can be used as an ingredient in cooking, but I've never seen it available to buy. I'm thinking that an A/O nonnie compliant kind of chocolate should be able to be made from cocoa powder, cocoa butter and agave.
Has anyone ever tried this? Ever bought any edible cocoa butter? Any ideas or thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance!
Note to self: I am me, and also an O-nonnie - I'm allowed not to fit the mould.

That's a great suggestion. NOW brand offers a 7 oz size that sells for around $7.99. If you google NOW foods, you can view this product on their website. I plan to check out Whole Foods tomorrow and if it isn't on their shelf, they can probably order it since they do carry that line. Thanks for the recipe idea.
