Dutch Chocolate Butter (Chocoladeboter)

"That's right... Chocolate Butter! Excellent on bread, muffins, scones - anything you would normally spread butter on. While not exactly healthy I can't help but love this on toast with peanut butter."

    Amazing I used borneville cocoa powder and I can't believe its not butter also next time i plan on using light brown sugar as I have a huge sweet tooth but still Bloomin amazing. Thanx for sharing!
    Wonderful! I can't believe how easy this was. I used I can't believe it's not butter fat free spread & Splenda. All I have is regular cocoa powder but it worked fine :-). The texture & flavor were great; thank u for sharing!

    Excellent recipe - economical, as well as quick and easy to make. I made it for the children, but my husband has just eaten some on a hot wholemeal scone, and loved it. I've never seen "Dutch-processed" cocoa powder here in the UK, so I used a regular good-quality one, and the result is a lovely semi-bitter chocolatey spread. Very decadent!

    Makes a 1/2 cup and is very rich, so I had to use it sparingly. It is great on biscotti also!

    This stuff is good, all right! I just used the cocoa powder I had on hand, but it still turned out great. I also substituted SmartBalance for the butter to keep things healthier. (I'm on a budget here, and butter is expensive!) Well, I might make this again sometime once I get this stuff used up. Thanks!
