Sugar-Free Carob Fudge for Valentine’s Day

Here is a delicious and simple recipe for a carob Valentine’s Day fudge that I enjoy sometimes on the holidays.

Ingredients

  • Unsweetened Carob Chips
  • Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter
  • Cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a small pan, melt as many carob chips as you prefer with a dash of water, depending on how much you’d like to make.
  2. Stir in a tablespoon of nut butter.
  3. Add a dash of cinnamon.
  4. Pour it on a plate and use a knife to shape it into a heart.

Eat it warm or sit it in the freezer for an hour or so until it hardens like a chocolate bar.

Options

  • You can use almond, walnut, or any butter you prefer in place of the cashew/macadamia.
  • Cinnamon can be replaced with vanilla, peppermint or orange.
  • Sprinkle with raisins and/or shredded coconut.
  • You can make a variety of different consistencies by varying the amount of nut butter you add and the amount of water used to melt the carob chips.
  • Different consistencies provide a variety of different textures and flavors. You may find you like it thick or thin.

Mmmm, Mmmm good. Now that’s a lot healthier for you than a box of chocolates.

However, do keep in mind that carob contains lectins and it is high in carbs, so this is not something that should be eaten on a regular basis. Reserve it for those special occasions.  Not only would this recipe be great on Valentine’s day, but it could work equally well on Easter, Christmas and birthdays; just make it a different shape.

Enjoy!
