The surface of my cocoa butter is uneven and mottled.
Sometimes, our cocoa butter may have a slightly mottled surface, but it's absolutely nothing to worry about ! This is a natural result of making the product by hand and, in particular, the cooling stage.
The butter is made with cocoa butter and carnauba wax, and both of these ingredients are heated so they can go from a solid to a liquid state. The mottled effect occurs because the two ingredients do not cool at the same rate. It can be more or less pronounced, but it does not impact the characteristics of the product in any way.
We've added carnauba wax to make the cocoa butter more heat-resistant, so it won't melt when your parcel is sent to you in the summer ! However, please avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as it may start to melt if it's exposed to extremely high temperatures !
