Chocolate spread is a chocolate-flavoured paste which is eaten mostly spread on breads and toasts or similar pastries such as waffles, pancakes, muffins, and pitas.

Chocolate spread is a product often favored by children and serves as a prevalent spread on their sandwiches. Some adults enjoy chocolate spread sandwiches as a comfort food.

Although it tastes, smells, and looks like chocolate, it does not solidify. The paste usually contains cocoa and vegetable and/or palm oil, and is also likely to contain milk, sugar and additional flavors.[1] At times, it also includes nuts or honey. Chocolate spread is normally sold in glass jars or plastic tubs.
