    I would sell my soul for Coconut Chocolate Chilli Goji Butter. Seriously. Chocolate + heat = heaven.

    I made a spiced almond butter that rocked. Maybe I need to revisit that with some chocolate added in… let’s face it, everything is better with chocolate. (Even oranges, though I know you disagree. 😉 )

    That coconut chocolate butter sounds special. I made peanut and toasted coconut butter, that was pretty good. I think I will add raisins next time

  3. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    I must highly recommend including macadamia nuts and white chocolate (or cacao butter) in your next batch of coconut butter 😉

    I keep staring at the coconut chocolate chili goji butter. That has my name written aaaaaall over it. I don’t think I could top that flavor but I’ll try: vanilla coconut lavendar sounds like the dainty sister to the evil yet decadent spicy chocolate one you tried, challenge on!

    My first thought was, “Oh! Do a coconut and rose butter!” But then I wondered if maybe that might taste a bit too much like the tiny dust-covered hand soaps in my grandmother’s bathroom THAT YOU MUST NEVER EVER USE. And so instead, I leave the flavor choice in your more capable hands.

    Some flirt, he didn’t even give you the sauce you asked for! How does one make coconut butter? Does it involve coconut oil, or some other magical trickery? I feel like I’ve missed an important post, probably while I was in Cairns working my face off this week. I’m off to catch up.

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I still love that chilli coconut butter 🙂 Or at least, I think I still love it because I haven’t justified a repeat purchase since my last Fremantle trip, and I haven’t re-created it at home since my first attempt. You’ve reminded me to fix that!

    Also, that raw blueberry bar looks divine. Divine!

    Petticoat made of stardust!

    I could drink thai iced tea by the bucketful, love love love it.

    OMG, I’ve been meaning to tell you that I found a store in the city that stocked Cocopure coconut butter! Mind you, they only had one flavour (vanilla) but I was so happy that I didn’t care. The health stores I visited in Queensland last week had more of a variety but for some reason, charged a lot more for them. Weird.

    Oh, what flavour? A salted caramel one would be just divine! 😀

  11. Ellie@Fit for the Soul

    ohhh I loove pure bars!!! especially the cherry and blueberry 😀
    ohhh I know!! add dulce de leche to the coconut choco butter. Or, some kind of orangey flavor? I think dark chocolate+orange together are DE-VINE.
    ps: I hope your hip feels better Hannah! All I know is that lots of icing with a towel might help ya.

  12. Lou

    oooo I’ve tried the Cocopure vanilla and the cashew cacao – both very good delivered by spoon to waiting mouth. Not sure if I like the whole chilli-chocolate flavour combo

    I made a walnut/carob/coconut butter = yum!

    Ummmm, how about cherry, chocolate coconut butter? I thought you didn’t like coconut though? 🙂

  13. Catherine

    Coconut and.. I can’t think… Carob? Not impossible.

    But what could I possibly send you from Italy!!!!

  14. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Ouch, burnies!!!! So happy you had the bar and it reminded you of more deliciousness 🙂 I love the idea of a vanilla coconut butter mmmmmm vanilla beans. But sorry, the vanilla pods must be opened at 2:05am. Deal breaker.

  15. Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco

    I love blogger package love! (Yes, I just used love twice in the same sentence.) That looks like some great loot!

    And congragulations on your marriage proposal! I’m sorry it didn’t work out, but at least you had a big bowl of veggies to make up for it. 😉

  16. hungryandfrozen

    OMG Stardust petticoat. Would wear. Okay, so tears of a narwhal are out. I haven’t looked at anyone else’s comments so not sure if this has come up already, but perhaps pineapple lime? Or coffee bean?

    I feel your pain so literally on the sunburn front.

    I like your saucy waiter story, perhaps you should continue requesting things to see what happens…

  17. Mike

    What else do koalas and heel-clickers have in common? They sleep a lot during the day and are good to cuddle. 🙂 🙂

  18. Sig

    I love coconut butter!! Actually coconut anything most days these days – weird huh since I never really liked Bounty’s….hmmmm….

    I’m quite jealous that you had a marriage proposal just after three sauces!! It took, 6 years, a lifetime promise of chocolate and a big fat Indian wedding for it to happen to me!! 😀

    Also – how bout a pina colada type of coconut butter?? Would that wokr? Or would you just end up getting drunk on the fumes?? 😛

  19. Chopinand @ ChopinandMysaucepan

    Dear Hannah,

    Heidi always tweets delicious and healthy looking lunch boxes and that bowl of raw veges with sun-dried tomato pesto reminds me of a lunch she would like too. And I know about those shockingly sweet iced teas because there are Malaysian versions of them too – absolutely undrinkable for me!

  20. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Isn’t Heidi lovely! And ouchies, you poor thing spay lady! Do you have some aloe vera to help with your sunburn? And are you and the waiter dating now? 😉

  21. Louise

    What a fun bunch of nibbles. I’d like to try that coconut butter, not sure if I’d like it though. Sunburn no fun of course. What book has been keeping you occupied of late?

  22. Kath Lockett

    I’m glad that you clarified the differences between koalas and your good self, because I didn’t want to read, “Oh and I smell like urine and eucalpytus too.”

    LOVE the lavender macaron, but am currently contenting myself with four squares of Cadbury Caramello, lovingly brought over to Love Chunks from an Aussie friend. I could live without it when in Oz, but it’s strange what you miss when you don’t have access it to.

    Coconut butter dream mix? Vanilla and cranberry?

  23. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    I don’t know if I can suggest anything that tops chocolate chili goji butter! Perhaps Chai spices and dark chocolate coconut butter would make an interesting mix?

    I’m really confused as to why lavender macarons are so good, because lavender totally reminds me of potpourri in an underwear drawer. Hm!

  24. Chocovine

    Looks yum! Good to see a nice boutiquey looking chocolate cafe open up in my hood xoxo

  25. JohannaGGG

    ouch – that sunburn looks painful – and I bet it doesn’t go brown like my sister does when she burns – but on the other hand I hope your hands don’t burn like E’s did when he first arrived in Australia – I am in the middle – I burn but not to much – yet I always find a place where the suncream doesn’t go and the sun does!

    and I think I would love to snack on the bowl of veg – they look very good because the air con here isn’t working well and I think I just need a cooling snack

  26. Emma

    This was another post that my pirated internet decided to only half load. And then yesterday decided to not load. I can’t picture what plain coconut butter tastes like so I can’t even begin to dream about what to put in it. Sadly I still have bacon on my mind. Hmm. Nope, I’ve got nothing.

    I love that sunburn. Did I ever mention the sunburn that stayed on my back for over a year? How does that even work?!??!

  27. Lauren

    Haha this is great! I can relate to the koala thing. I would actually like to see a lavender vanilla flavor. Yum

  28. April

    Hahaha, Hannah you just made my day with this post! Your writing style is so funny, I was having a good chuckle at my desk and even while typing this I am still smiling. My highlight was the going from “Whitey-McWhitester Paleface von Alabaster” to “Whitey-McWhitester Burntface von Alalobster”, as well as the “potpourri-scented underwear drawer” 🙂

  29. Agnes

    AND in this post…

    Oh, there’s no photos for me to interpret in this post. Oh I know – that first photo looks like a koala. *beams*
