Dark chocolate compound is a product made with pure cocoa, vegetable fat ( such as coconut oil or palm kernel oil ) and sweeteners. Cocoa butter is replaced with vegetable fats, making it a low-cost alternative to true chocolate. Cocoa bean contain around 35-55% cocoa butter or more which is extracted and replaced by hydrogenated oils, alternating the properties of a good chocolate. Made with oils, it would not melt (unlike a real chocolate that melts at 34°C) and when consumed leaves a thick oil film on palate.
