Looking for a treat for my husbands birthday I saw a packet of cocoa butter in my local health food store. Having recently seen a recipe using cocoa butter that said it was GAPS legal, I bought some. Boy were my family pleased!
Here is a recipe to use it with:
Although I didn't use the above recipe - I followed the instructions on the pack - using just honey and cocoa powder and a little real salt, we were pleasantly surprised at the texture. Whereas very dark chocolate bought from the local store is often dry and brittle, this was smooth and moist. All in all, a very pleasant chocolate experience. We did add nuts and raisins too.
At nearly £5 for 100g it was expensive though, so I was pleased to look on Amazon and find that you can buy it in bulk a lot cheaper! So maybe it won't be such a rare treat after all - but not every day! I must watch that sweet tooth of mine - it could come back very easily!
