I remember eating carob “chocolate” as a kid and being horribly disappointed with the taste, and deciding to dislike carob forever more.
But recently I’ve been dipping my toe back into the waters of carob, because I’m currently testing a theory that chocolate is messing with my mind. (It’s either that or the faeries that live in the shoebox under my bed.)
So when I was craving something sweet the other day, I made my raw chocolate almond pulp fudge with carob powder instead, and it kind of worked.
Kind of, in a “want to keep eating it” kind of way. Yay. Another chip in the “carob is yuck” mental block of mine.
And I reckon I could have even added a little more carob, because the fudge was almost a bit too sweet. I did only use 40g of carob (a heaped 1/3 cup) instead of the 65g (2/3 cup) of cacao in the original recipe, because I didn’t want to over do it. Guess I didn’t.
I love successful experiments :)
