Carob Candy Squares

How about trying a recipe for Carob Candy Squares?

I wish I had more carob candy recipes for you, but they are scarce on the ground. 

However, I think you will love this nutty, chewy, fruity, treat that has the hint of chocolaty flavor that comes from carob.

You don't have to follow this carob candy recipe exactly. You can add or change any of the "filler" fruits and nuts to accommodate your own favorite flavors.

I personally don't care for coconut, so I would leave that one out entirely. :)

But there are so many yummy dried fruits that you could create some unique and amazing treats.

I recently bought some dried cranberries and they are terrific in salads, and added to cookies, fudge, squares, or clusters.  Mmmm!

The basic idea really does work with almost any combination. Play around with it a bit until you discover your own secret recipe.
