    Wait, what? Chocolate coconut butter? Do you melt the chocolate? Do you think it could work in a food processor with a broken lid? As Kristin Chenoweth said in her autobiography (I can’t remember the context though) “hummina-hummina-whaa?”

    I do like Donovan’s dark chocolate, lovely and clean tasting. Cadbury…not so much :/

      Is Kristin Chenoweth even old enough to have an autobiography? 🙂

  2. Sarah

    Wow, it looks amazing. I was thinking the same thing about my food processor with the broken lid!

    Whoa now, chocolate coconut butter? I can’t even imagine how scrumptious that would be.

    Excellent review, as per usual…I can almost taste it. Almost!

    Your descriptions are inspiring. Love the “salted butter, and smoke flavours.” And that chocolate coconut butter has me wishing I was that special friend! 🙂

    I shall have to try this Donovan’s chocolate if there’s no emulsifier. Any online stores I could get it from?

    Gosh you just describe the flavours so exquisitely. I can’t even tell the difference in flavours between a number of berries and nuts. Haha foodblogger fail. 😀

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m not sure which looks better: the chocolate or the chocolate butter. Or the scroggin. I think the chocolate butter wins out by a smidgen though!

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Ooh I am so excited! I still have a little bit left of your delicious fudge in a jar as I call it. I’m saving it but I do love it so! 😉

    I love your chocolate reviews, Hannah! Good thing I bought myself a 72% bar yesterday, or else I’d be in trouble after reading this post. Interesting how this particular chocolate doesn’t have any vanilla in it.

    OMG chocolate coconut butter!!!! Awesome idea Hannah 🙂

    Scroggin! Love it. 🙂 I love that you find treats from all over the globe. And I get to experience them via you. Hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend honey bunny. Xxx

    chocolate coconut butter – AWESOME. 😀 did you eat it by the spoonful? 🙂

  13. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Mmm, the words you used to describe this chocolate are the words I use to describe my favorite teas. Smoky, hazelnut, burnt coffee – those all perk up my ears. And then you went and blended it into a chocolate sauce in a stroke of genius, awesome!

    I love you for making chocolate coconut butter, since I keep forgetting to buy coconut to make some!

  15. Tammy

    What an amazing idea to throw it into the vitamix! I love that and perhaps shall make some for a friend today.

  16. Tammy

    Oh, and I LOVE the photo of the vitamix.

  17. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    hehe glad to hear that the blocks made it to you ‘whole’ 😉

  18. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Hmmm, I think I definitely need to know more about this chocolate coconut butter.

    Oh I remember scroggin – haven’t heard that term for years! Glad your pure chocolate was enjoyed and put to go use – I think I would have preferred it with the dessicated coconut being crunchy in it rather than blended to butter – but seeing the chocolatey ribbon being poured in the jar still gave me vita mix envy

  20. April@MyFoodTrail

    I’m not sure if it’s your camera, but that 80% chocolate doesn’t look very dark!

    I’m waiting for the post about that decadent “chocolate smoothie” at the end! 🙂

  21. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    What lovely sounding chocolate – but you need to post the chocolate avocado mousse recipe. Avocados were 3 for $2 at the Fyshwick Markets on the weekend and I stocked up! (no pressure or anything – ;P )

    I think your sideline should be holding chocolate tasting classes in Canberra. Just like wine tasting classes, but, with chocolate…! I’d definitely sign up.

    Chocolate Coconut Butter?? WHAT?? I WANT!!!!!!!!!!!! How was your weekend? Did you have a chocolate inducing moment?? Or close bliss to that effect?

  24. Agnes

    Oh scroggin. Good for tramping.

  25. Christine @ Merf In Progress

    Chocolate coconut butter, oh my heavens!

  26. Jamee

    YUM. Chocolate chunks + coconut = chocolate coconut butter? Jigga-whaaa? Must get one of these Vita-Mixes you blog about (I catch up on your posts in the middle of the night when my baby feels the need to wake me and nurse…hehe!). << unfortunately I can't figure out how to comment from my phone! 😉 ALSO – inspired by your blog as I am, I was at Whole Foods the other day and decided to try a dark chocolate bar with chilies! I thought, "Hannah would be so proud of me," so I saved the wrapper (it was delicious, after all) to send you a twitter picture. Well wouldn't you know, my dogs found the wrapper and devoured it before I could send you a pic. Dangit! Next time! Just know that you inspired me to try something new. And my tastebuds thank you (my waist line, on the other hand….) 😉 -Jamee

    I like the looks of yer honey jar. I just tried some ‘bog’ honey the other day, it was delicious and mild and not very different from clover honey, really. Scroggin!

  28. Louise

    Always happy to oblige Hannah, and so glad that you tweaked it to perfection in the chocolate coconut butter. That looks sensational.

    […] smiling back at me would one day make my soul soar by sending me chocolate from her holidays in New Zealand and, as you’ll see today, the United […]

    Chocolate coconut butter!! I don’t think it can get any better.
