Cocoa butter is a natural edible oil extracted from cocoa beans during the production of chocolate and cocoa powder. It has only a faint chocolate taste and aroma and is one of the ingredients for making real chocolate. The candy commonly known as white chocolate is made from it alone. Cocoa butter has a melting point of about 34-38 degrees Celsius (93-100 degrees Fahrenheit), so chocolate is solid at room temperature and melts quickly in the mouth.
