    1. Brenda,
      Look for it in your email. Thanks!

  2. Love this. So much better for me than what are in stores. Thank you!

  3. Is there a way to substitute the coconut oil in this recipe? My mom is allergic to coconut and I’d still like to make some for her.

    1. What about almond oil? I have never tried it so I am not sure how it will turn out. Wish I could tell you for sure. I have only used the coconut oil.

  4. Would it be possible to use all cocoa butter instead of half shea and half cocoa?

    1. Hey Melanie. You could try that. I have not made it that way so I am unsure how it would turn out.
