2 1/4 cup maple syrup (I used part agave)
1 cup groud raw cacao
1 1/4 cup carob powder
1 cup coconut oil
Blend until smooth.
NOTE: It was so thick it caused my blender to over heat so split the recipe in half and do it in 2 batches. Pour into your favorite nut/date crust. I used a springform pan. Chill in fridge for 2 hours. Amaze your SAD family and friends!
I formed the Chewy Caramel mixture into little balls and flattened them lightly.
Then I covered these with the Chocolate Ganache. To make it easier, you can spread a little circle of chocolate on parchment paper. Then put a caramel ball on top and finish covering with chocolate.
