Carob In Place Of Chocolate
Is it possible to use carob in place of chocolate?
I was wondering if we can do the same things with carob as with chocolate. eg. melt the carob chips and use it as a dip for some candy's, or melt the carob chips and put it in chocolate molds. because I have lot of carob chips.
Yes, you can use carob in place of chocolate in most recipes. Of course it isn't going to taste the same as chocolate. :) But if you enjoy the taste of carob, it's a great substitute.
Some people have commented that they have a little more difficulty in working with or handling carob chips when melting, etc., compared to chocolate chips, but with a little practice, you should be fine.
