Surprisingly enough olive oil lends itself well to chocolate. The high cocoa butter content in chocolate allows it to blend easily with oil and olive oil flavor recedes nicely to background. By using olive oil in place of dairy it becomes easy to create rich and creamy non-dairy chocolate deserts.
When purchasing olive oil bring home bottle and replace lid with a pouring-spout stopper designed for use with liquor bottles. This will allow for spill proof pouring and more control over stream of oil.
The oil should always be stored in a cool dark location and used within a years’ time. This distinctive choice in oil can turn rancid if left on shelf too long.
