Holly's Insider Pro Tips
How to properly melt coconut butter - You will want to gently microwave, stirring often, in order to get the coconut butter to a nice melty pourable consistency. Alternatively, place the jar in a bowl of hot water and stir often.
Using the best dark chocolate - Since chocolate is the 2nd star of this recipe, you'll want to use a dark chocolate you love. I personally love using anything over 70% and I always check the labels to be sure there are no milk fats in the ingredients.
Raspberry Coconut Butter Cups FAQs
What can replace coconut butter in the recipe? To be completely honest, coconut butter is the star of the show in this recipe. You'd be better off looking for a recipe with a different main ingredient.
Do you keep coconut butter in the fridge? No need to store coconut butter in the fridge. As long as its in a glass jar or sealed container, it'll last in the pantry for a few months.
Can you substitute regular butter in for coconut butter? In this recipe, no, you cannot. Regular butter will not solidify enough to make a cup. plus is just wouldn't taste good at all!
Is coconut butter healthier than butter? This depends on your definition of healthy. Coconut oil is about 90% saturated fat, which is higher than butter, which is about 64% saturated fat. Too much saturated fat in the diet is unhealthy because it raises the "bad" cholesterol.
My opinion is, all things in moderation. Are you eating these every single day? Are you eating 10 at a time? No shame in either of those things, but that's what you'd want to take into consideration when asking if they're healthy or not.
