Carob and Yogurt Chips Candy

by Cynthia Powell

I need some help making a carob and yogurt chips candy and keeping it firm.

I have a recipe I make for my dog treat bakery. I use cinnamon/carob/yogurt chips and peanut butter and a little bit of olive oil.

It tastes great, but melts too easily. Any trick to having it stay hard, longer. I freeze it now!

Hi Cynthia,

What a clever idea to have a dog treat bakery! That seems like a really fun business idea and I hope you do really well with it.

Here in Australia we have a monthly market in our country town and one of the market stalls deals strictly in healthy dog treats. :)

I've been thinking about your dilemma with the melting carob and yogurt chips candy. Is it possible to make it with less oil? I would guess that the olive oil and the peanut butter is what is causing the final product to be too soft.

The only solution I can think of off the top of my head would be to get some food grade paraffin wax and melt some of that into the carob and yogurt chip mixture so that it will add a little more stability when the candy sets.

I don't really work with carob much, but perhaps one of our other carob loving visitors will be able to offer some alternative suggestions.

If you think you can help Cynthia, please use the comment link below to share your experiences or make some suggestions on how she can keep her carob dog treat candy firm without having to freeze it.

HI Cynthia from Pretty Pooch Boutique, my name is Kathy and I make all the goodies for our business. I too work with yogurts and carobs, have you ever heard of paramount crystals? They work wonders with all the diff. candy. Good luck and one more thing, dont give your recipies out to freely take it from someone that knows. Its terrible to say, but some people cant come up with there own ideas. Good luck again on your business.

Carob and Yogurt Chips Candy
by: Darla

I have a few suggestions that may help you with this candy.
1. Yogurt chips and carob have different melting qualities, sometimes when you mix the two, they will melt but not keep a good form.
2. Rather than using peanut butter, try using peanut butter flavoring. Make sure that it is flavoring not the extracts. The extracts have alcohol and water that can ruin your chocolate.
3. Are the yogurt chips just like chocolate chips, or is it yogurt coating. Yogurt coating is good to coat things, but the chips themselves are more for baking because they hold their shape better. Hope this information helps.
