Four ingredients and about 10 minutes of your time is all you need to make these little nut free Valentine candies!
The popular name might be MOUNDS, the nut free version of Almond Joy, remember those? Well, these are for all of you and your family who have nut allergies like my boys!
You can use regular chocolate chips if you like instead of the carob ones I chose to use. If you can find grain sweetened chocolate chips, even better. I’ve had no luck at Whole Foods or online. I opted for the sweetened carob chips made from beet sugar as opposed to unsweetened carob chips, for the sake of time and convenience.
- 6 ounces carob chips, sweetened
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil, divided
- 3 tablespoons shredded coconut, unsweetened, divided
- 2 packets powdered stevia
