Hi stupid question: but does coconut butter need to be melted? and can you use coconut oil instead or any other sort of substitute?

purelytwins November 14, 2013 - 1:42 pm

Lauren we make them in the video πŸ˜‰ But no the butter is not melted. And we talked about oil in the video but really butter is best or a nut butter.

Lauren November 14, 2013 - 1:52 pm
