    How easy! I am going to make some for myself as a treat.

    Would you melt the coconut oil first, or use solid? I tried solid and it didn’t seem to get oily, just like asugar paste. Maybe I just need to add more, but I already added more than the 1/4 cup.

    Yes, if yours is in a solid form, you can melt it – put the jar in some warm / hot water (being careful not to burn yourself) until it melts. You can find some coconut oil that is already in “oil” or “melted” form, which is what was used for this recipe.

    do you mean almond extract or almond oil for the 1/2 tsp?
