I have just used cacao butter 6 yrs out of date to make raw chocolate adding honey and raw cocoa powder. I didn't realise until after I had made the chocolate how out of date it was. Is it OK to eat? The cacao butter looked fine. I had it in the fridge all that time in a sealed plastic container.

  • By 'out of date' do you mean it's past its "Use By" or past it's "Best Before"? – Doug Dec 21 '14 at 16:58

I wouldn't eat it if I were you. I don't think it is safe to eat if it is 6 years out of date. I recommend you to throw it and make another one with new ingredients.

  • Your statement may or may not be correct. It is customary here to find some references to back up anything you claim. Do you have any links to sources? – Richard ten Brink Jul 1 '15 at 5:49
