Chocolate butter

The other day I was in a grocery store and saw... chocolate butter! Little you know, the childhood memories just flooded my mind. Remember when you were a child you thought that the most delicious thing in the world was corn dogs or hotdogs and mac-n-cheese? Well, it's kind of like that. Butter is generally a high priced item in a grocery store. Well, add chocolate to it, and it nearly doubles in price! :) So my mom reserved to buying it to about once a year for special occasions. Chocolate butter is basically really good, creamy butter blended with dark cocoa powder and sugar. You serve it on a slice of bread or on a toast - I mind you, you don't just rub it into your toast, you SLATHER it on you toast! Now that I'm thinking of it, it's like having chocolate frosting... yum. I wonder if it still tastes just as good as during the childhood.

Don't know if you can find the butter in the U.S. - if there are some eastern european stores around you, you may want to check there. Personally, I have not seen it anywhere but Russia.

Oksana, I just got your blog from Denise and Love reading it, I had no idea you were doing a blog.
Thanks, it is fun to read.
I am so sorry Adam did not come to Russia and see you, the 6th of Dec was my hubby's 60th Birthday we were at Disney.
Dutch Chocolate Butter (Chocoladeboter) Recipe #140711
That's right... Chocolate Butter! Excellent on bread, muffins, scones - anything you would normally spread butter on. While not exactly healthy I can't help but love this on toast with peanut butter.
