Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
Serves: 12 individual mini carob bars
Ingredients
  • 110g raw cocoa butter, about 1.5 cups
  • 50g carob powder, about ½ cup
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted sun butter or other nut/seed butter
Instructions
  1. In a bain marie (double boiler), gently melt the cocoa butter until it is completely liquid.
  2. Next, whisk in the carob powder a little at a time until the mixture is completely combined. Be careful to not let the mixture become too hot because the carob powder forms clumps that are difficult to break up. Whisk until the mixture is a smooth as you can possibly make it.
  3. Then, add in the sun butter a Tbsp at a time. The oil from the nut butter will smooth out any small lumps that remain in the carob liquid.
  4. Finally, carefully spoon the mixture into a silicone mold with individual chocolate bars or simply pour the entire mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet with edges--this is important-- you do not want the carob to pour off the edges of your pan!
  5. Once the carob chocolate is in the mold, let it sit at room temperature until it has set enough to not be runny, about two hours. Then, chill the carob chocolate in the refrigerator until completely set, four to *six hours.
  6. Store in the refrigerator.
Notes
