So we’ve finally found an acceptable way to smear chocolate on ourselves. This yummy body butter has been whipped up using cocoa butter, cocoa powder, and caramel, among other things, which makes us want to scoop it out of the jar and gulp down. But we won’t.

But do step out with caution when using this; you’re likely to be a very edible target.
