Coconut Butter

When I was searching for some ketogenic diet friendly snacks, I came across this dark chocolate bark recipe that requires coconut butter. I didn’t see any coconut butter in the supermarket, so decided to google and see whether can I make the coconut butter myself. When I saw the YouTube how easy it is to make this butter, I went to get the only ingredient that you needed to make this butter – desiccated coconut.  
This coconut butter is delicious and it keeps for ages and does not need to be kept in the fridge as it will gets very hard if is in the fridge. It does harden and soften depending on temperature, so you may need to warm it to liquify it during cold weather. This butter is also a great substitute for copha. But you do need to use a powerful blender if you don’t have a Thermomix to make this butter
