This recipe came out sooooo good! My friend requested something non-chocolate but still with the chocolate taste, so carob it was!
This recipe is really simple too. I mostly added/substituted a couple things from my original coconut butterscotch fudge recipe, and made it into a carob delight!
You can make this sugar free as well! Just substitute the maple syrup for stevia, and you are good to go!
So without further ado…Let us begin!
You will need:
– 1/3 cup coconut butter (not to be confused with coconut oil)
– 1/3 cup raw tahini (you can also use raw cashew or almond butter as well…they all taste extraordinary!)
– 2 tbsp coconut oil
– 2 tbsp maple syrup (or for sugar free, use stevia)
– 1 tbsp. carob powder
– 1 tbsp. molasses
– 1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp crushed nuts (if you want a nut fudge)
– couple tbsp. of dried fruit such as goji berries or mulberries for topping.
Melt the coconut butter, coconut oil, nut butter and honey in a double boiler (a pot inside a pan or pot with hot water). Remove from the heat and then mix in the rest of the ingredients. Make sure that the carob is completely mixed in! If you need more sweetener, add 1 more tbsp. of honey or molasses.
Put it in the fridge for a couple hours, and voila! The end! Then, take it out and eat!
Fun fact: If it is hot enough in your house, the coconut oil and coconut butter will already be melted from the heat, so no additional heat required! That’s what happened to me one time, so I literally just threw all the stuff in a container, mixed it around outside on my patio for extra heat, put it in the fridge, and it was ready in 2 hours! Took me all of five minutes!
