White chocolate is a (nearly white) confection based on cocoa butter without the cocoa solids. It also includes milk and sugar. Many, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration do not consider white chocolate to be chocolate because it lacks cocoa solids. Because of this, "white chocolate" does not necessarily need to contain cocoa butter, and is sometimes made from hydrogenated vegetable oil instead
White chocolate has a texture and mouthfeel like chocolate but not the same taste. Some, however, find the taste reminiscent of milk chocolate. It can be used for decoration of milk or dark chocolate confections or in any way the chocolates might be used.
