Review Detail

Mattie, Grazie Grazie Grazie! What a great recipe. I made it today for the first time and love it. I have one question though, because I live here in Italy, I can only find Virgin Coconut oil, which as you know has a taste of coconut. The refined kind is sold to the food industry in very huge quantities. Is there any way I can diminish the taste of coconut when using the virgin kind? I also tried to find cocoa butter but alas that is not sold here either. Any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW I LOVE your website, it is my go to site as I am a vegan newbie. Thanks again.

Thanks so much patchouligrrl! I'm sorry you can't find refined coconut oil or cocoa butter in Italy. Perhaps there's a way you can order it online there? I usually get my refined cocoa butter that way. I believe refined coconut oil is refined by passing it through a charcoal filter and I don't think it's possible to do that at home. If anyone knows, please chime in!
