ISO ways to use coconut butter

I bought some coconut butter because I had never seen it before, and thought it would be a fun thing to try. I heated it, stirred it, and tasted it. Ok, but not the greatest. Next I added it to a smoothie. Better, but a bit odd. So, what have you used it for, and do you have any TNT recipes? Thanks!

I was ready to be impressed that you knew what it was when I saw that you had replied. It does smell just like the sun tanning lotion I used to slather on my body as a teenager!

Not me. I've never heard of it either.

I got coconut oil at Costco, am assuming it's similar? It really is a good skin moisturizer, I keep a small jar in the shower. I tried some in my hair as a conditioner, make sure you use an extra squirt of shampoo as I was a Rastafarian the next day.... I've also used it in my chocolate cheerio peanut butter clusters. Have cooked fish in it, adds a nice subtle coconut flavor.

101 Uses for Coconut Oil
Thanks for the link. It talks about oil. Are the oil and the "butter" interchangeable. Could I use coconut butter in a batch of cookies instead of butter?

Andy's link talks about that. I would bet it would make great coconut shrimp!
