Home-made carob chocolates, topped with coconut flakes & crushed walnuts!

A few days ago, I made these easy to make home-made carob chocolates! I served these @ coffee at New Year’s Eve! They were a huge success!! Check them out!!! We can’t buy good carob chocolate over here & those shop-bought bars are full of bad ingredients & lactose, so I made these myself! This is how I did it!

MMM,...! :) Carob goodness!

MMM,…! 🙂 Carob goodness! A tasty Food Gift!! 🙂

Recipe: For about 23 smaller chocolates!

Ingredients:

6 tablespoons of a good coconut oil

6 tablespoons of carob powder

6 tablespoons of coconut sugar

To sprinkle on top of the carob chocolate: whatever you want, I used a small handful of smaller unsweetened coconut flakes + a small handful of crushed walnut pieces

Method:

1. Add coconut sugar, into the dry container of your Vitamix & blend on full speed & on high, until it becomes a fine powder!

2. Melt coconut oil, on a lower fire, in a cooking pot, until fully melted. Stir in powdered coconut sugar until completely dissolved. Whisk away! Now, add carob powder & whisk it completely into melted coconut oil-sugar mix. It must be completely smooth & there must’nt be any lumps!! Otherwise you will see & taste that in the bars! 😉

3. Line a pot with parchment paper & pour your hot mix in it, evenly divided. If you want thicker chocolate bars, your pot must not be as wide as mine,…use a smaller pot & you will end up with thicker carob bars!!! But it didn’t bother me at all! Finally, top with your favourite toppings like unsweetened coconut flakes & crushed walnut halves! Place into the fridge to stiff up. This will take about 30 minutes or more,…:) When cooled off completely, cut them into bars & place them onto the parchment paper in a cake box. Keep them in the fridge otherwise they will melt,…And we don’t want that! Maybe next time, I will pour this mix into chocolate moulds & will come up with different other tasty toppings too! Enjoy, my lovely ones! xxx

    One can never have enough chocolate. And one that’s gluten-free and vegan just means more folks are bound to fall head over heels for it.

  5. Norma Chang says:

    You are so creative and resourceful, great job.

    This is such a creative idea!! I really like carob, just the flavor of it, but I don’t eat it often. I don’t know of any place that sells the powder near me though, I’ll have to keep my eye out for it online!
