View Full Version : Hershey's chocolate replacement????
04-27-2006, 03:20 PM
I told my kids that once they were out of the stuff that was it. Now I want to make a carob based replacement for them. Any ideas?
My daughter loves to put it over banana ice cream etc...

Well, it's not bar chocolate, but you might try this vegan chocolate pudding recipe:
I made it the other day using honey & some water instead of agave nectar and it was really delicious!

I thought about it later that I didn't specify that I was looking for a chocolate syrup rather than candy bar type thing. Ooopss! Of course, I never met any kind of chocolate that I didn't like. :p :p :p

Here are a couple of recipes:
1 c carob powder
2 c water (approx.)
1-2 Tbs sweetener (maple syrup, rice syrup, honey, (agave) ...) or 1/2 tsp stevia
Vanessa's Raw Chocolate Sauce
* 1 c. maple syrup* (grade B if you have it)
* 1/2 c. agave nectar
* 6 Tbls. raw cacao nibs
* 2 Tbls. cacoa powder**
* 1 Tbls. virgin coconut oil
* 1 tsp. nama shoyu
* seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean (optional)
Place all ingredients in your VitaMix and blend on high for approx. 30 seconds until smooth. This sauce can be used for many things.
*Agave nectar can be used in place of the maple syrup. It just won't give it as much depth of flavor as the maple syrup does. **Carob powder can be used in place of the cocoa powder, or you can do half carob, half cocoa.

Our favorite is on page 528 in Alissa's book, Carob Fudge Sauce. It is so good on banana ice cream.
I even make an extra batch and keep it in the freezer sometimes, then it is a nice thick fudge to just eat!

RP your recipe states carob or coco powder. Do you use one or the other and which one is better? Some people report that carob makes certain recipes 'bitter' did you or anyone else experience that? Joz

Sorry, Shelah, I didn't see this post.
I made the first one that Rawkinlocs posted. I believe it was just water, carob and stevia. I didn't want one of the richer ones first. I knew that if I did my kids wouldn't like the simpler one. They do like it a lot so it is one more thing down.
