And, you can make Chocolate Olive Oil yourself. Here's how!
Chocolate Olive Oil
Recipe from Colavita Olive Oil
3/4 cup Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 squares Perugina 85% Cocoa Extra Dark Chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp espresso powder
Position rack in middle position in oven; preheat to 275 degrees F.
Place chopped Perugina chocolate, vanilla extract, and espresso powder in heatproof measuring cup or bowl. Pour olive oil on top. Give everything gentle stir to combine.
Place heatproof bowl on baking sheet, and place in preheated oven.
Leave bowl in oven for 1 hour, stirring mixture every 15 minutes to prevent chocolate sticking to bottom of vessel.
Remove baking sheet with chocolate olive oil mixture, and place on top of wire rack. It will bubble for a few minutes. Let cool to room temperature. Once cooled, pour mixture into serving bowl (if using immediately) or airtight container (if storing).
Note: There will be some small chocolate bits in bottom of mixture; if these bother you, pour mixture through strainer.
Store mixture in airtight container at room temperature. Some separation may occur after it sits a while, sort of like how natural peanut butter will have oil resting on top. Stir mixture to re-incorporate.
