to make candy that won't melt in hot weather?
We are leaving on a trip and i would love to pack some candy to go with us.
I love chocolate but any flavor will do as long as it makes the trip without melting.
Please help me if you can.

MaRaw's lemon chewies are a cookie, but they taste more like a confection to me. Like soft lemon candy. I think the recipe is on this board somewhere.

If all else fails, Medjool dates are a candy in and of themselves.

ooooh! Well, I know these aren't chocolate (sorry) but last night I had some left-over caramel dip sitting in the fridge, so I decided to dehydrate it overnight. The result - little chewie caramel CANDIES :)

We were at a Raw Potluck back in October and someone brought some dates with almond butter and boy, were they ever delicious! My husband thinks they taste almost like peanut butter cups. Really!! There is no chocolate as it is just dates (cut in half) with almond butter (whatever your favorite nut butter is) spread on top of each half. This was a huge hit for the kids as well!
This would work well for going on a trip. You can put your dates in a separate container and your almond butter in another container. When you're hungry, simply spread the nut butter on the dates as you eat them. :)
Hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure these won't melt...
½ cup cocoa powder (I think you could sub carob if you want, but I don't care for it, so I use cocoa powder, even though it's not raw)
¾ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup Sucanat/maple syrup/honey
enough water to thin if necessary
Mix together in food processor until smooth. Use as frosting or pudding, or dehydrate in thin sheets, roll into logs, and then cut into Tootsie Roll-sized pieces.
