Homemade Chocolate or Carob Chips
These Homemade Chocolate Chips (or carob chips) are dairy, soy, and sugar-free and great for baking, trail mixes, or eating right out of the bag!
Melt coconut oil over a very low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in carob, sweetener, and vanilla. (If you heat over too high of a heat or don't remove from the heat, the coconut oil will separate from the carob when cooling. You can still eat it, but it won't be as smooth.)
Pour mixture into a pan (8x8 works well).
Place in refrigerator or freezer until solid. Remove from pan, and cut into chunks of desired size with a good, solid knife.
Store in a cool place such as the fridge until ready to use.
