Open Chocolate Licensing

Our chocolate recipes are published under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license. That means you are free to use them, modify them and produce commercial products from them, provided you give appropriate credit and release any modified recipes under the same license.

We are somewhat flexible as to how you go about implementing the license, as our primary goal is to spread knowledge, as long as credit is given in a reasonable manner and others are given the opportunity to further build upon our work.

If you have any specific questions about licensing, please get in touch.
