Recently one of our daughters-in-law shared the following recipe with me, with exclamations of delight! A feature is the velvety smoothness, achieved by the use of coconut oil.


  • 4 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons carob
  • 1-2 tablespoons liquid honey – Blue Borage or Wanganui City Gardens
  • Vanilla essence


  • Gently melt the coconut oil and honey over a very low heat in a small saucepan.
  • Take off the element and blend in well, the remaining ingredients.
  • Spoon mixture onto a small shallow dish.
  • Set mixture in freeze for a few minutes, then take out to score the mixture into small bite-sized portions and set back into the freezer to set more firmly.
  • Keep the treats in the freezer until ready for serving.
