Homemade Carob Chips by Raia's Recipes

A while ago I saw this recipe on the site Whole New Mom and ever since then I wanted to try it out. Well, I finally got my chance when I used up the last of my chocolate chips. Being pregnant in a house without chocolate is not a good thing. Though it probably wouldn’t be a good thing even if I weren’t pregnant. . . .

I chose to make carob chips instead of chocolate because, for some weird reason, organic roasted carob is cheaper here than cocoa powder, thus I have a ton of it. (Not literally, of course.)

Anyway, these were SUPER easy to make and taste wonderful. I haven’t used them in anything yet – I’m just eating them by the handful. : ) I’ll try them in something soon, I promise.

So, on to the recipe. . . .

{Homemade Carob Chips}
Refined sugar free.

1 c. butter
1 c. carob powder
2 T. honey
1 t. vanilla (I like to make my own)

Line an 8×8 inch baking dish with foil. Set aside. Melt butter. (I did it in a microwave. Gross, I know, but I was not being patient.) Dump everything else in and quickly stir until smooth. Pour into pan and level off with a spatula or spoon. Freeze until hardened. Remove from pan, peel off foil, cut into chunks and eat store covered in the fridge until ready to use. So simple!
