Cocoa butter (or theobroma oil) is a useful tool in any chocolatier or pastry chef’s kit, adding a creamy texture to everything from cakes and ice cream to hot chocolates, and more.
Created during the latter stages of the cocoa production process, cocoa butter is a plant-based fat and is used in a variety of ways by the food and cosmetics industries.
Apart from being the key ingredient in our favourite confection; chocolate, cocoa butter can also be used to add fluidity to chocolate grades for easier enrobing. The higher the cocoa butter content of a chocolate, the more easily it will melt in the mouth!
Vegan and dairy-free, cacao butter is a kitchen essential that can be used in sweet and savoury dishes, added to your favourite chocolate grades to increase their shine and snap, or mixed into ice cream for a smoother mouthfeel and slower melting rate.
