1 cup carob powder
2 cups caster sugar
½ cup milk
¼ cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix sugar and carob in a saucepan with a little of the milk until smooth.
Add the rest of the milk then the butter. Heat slowly, stirring all the time, till it’s thick enough to coat the spoon, then a bit more.
Take off the heat, add vanilla, beat for about five minutes (you need to do this for a smooth texture). Pour onto a greased oven dish or into patty cases or drip drops for ‘buttons’ onto a greased tray etc. Cut if needed when cold.
