I have checked every grocery store around- the stupid people always lead me to the beauty section even when I tell them it is for painting cakes or for chocolate. Then when they finally get it, they tell me they don't have any. Where do you all get it?

I have seen it sold at Wal-Mart in Health and Beauty department, it comes in a stick.

You can get it in any pharmacy. Pure cocoa butter can be found in the beauty section. It is often used for moisturizing and the prevention of stretch marks.

I know, odd, but true.

You can order cocoa butter buttons from any chocolate supply. I use Noel brand. Also, if you are looking to paint with cocoa butter, you can buy bottles of colored cocoa butter from Chef Rubber. They're not cheap, but they go a long way and it's a nice convenience as opposed to coloring your own.

You can get it here:

One of the reasons it's hard to find is because it has a relatively short shelf life.

Keep in mind that cocoa butter found in the beauty department may not be food safe.

Now do you add coloring to the cocoa butter straight to use it to paint or due add the cocoa butter to real cocoa and then color from there> Sorry icon_confused.gif
