While not exactly the mix of chocolate and peanut butter you see advertised by certain big candy makers, the carob powder in my carob eggs does impart a hint of chocolate flavor.
1 cup of carob powder
1 cup of honey
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of powdered milk
1 cup of chopped peanuts
1/2 cup of toasted wheat germ
coconut or chopped nuts (optional)
Sift the carob into a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, working them with your hands until they're well blended. If the mixture is too dry, add a few drops of water. On the other hand, should it be too wet, you can work in more powdered milk a tablespoon at a time. Once you've achieved the right consistency, shape the dough into eggs and coat them with shredded coconut or chopped nuts if you like.
