Carob Fruit Candy

  • 2 cups powdered milk
  • 1/2 cup carob powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup raisins, dates, or apricots
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped

  1. Combine powdered milk and carob powder in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients, except coconut, mixing well.

  2. Mold mixture into balls and roll in the coconut. 

  3. As an alternative, the coconut can be mixed in and the mixture rolled into a long rope, then cut in slices.

This "chocolate carob" recipe is such a nice change from regular chocolate candy. It is especially good when you are expecting or nursing a baby and need to cut out the caffeine.

You can still treat yourself to something decadent, but full of goodness too.
