Substitute for Cocoa Butter in a recipe

SandraV | Sep 15, 200608:42 PM     9

I'm making a recipe for Peanut Butter Shortbread with Peanut Butter Ice Cream that appeared in a recent Bon Appetit. The one item I can't find anywhere is Cocoa Butter so I'm wondering what I might substitute. Possibly a chocolate hazelnut butter (Nutella like stuff from Whole Foods).

Has anyone made this recipe or have any ideas? I don't have it on hand and I'm not even sure right now if the cocoa butter is cooked/melted but I think not. It's part of a "crunch" that goes with the dessert.
