Carob is a very interesting cousin of chocolate. It is kind of like berries and chocolate mixed. If you are wanting to cut back on chocolate and slowly replace it with carob (great for people with autoimmune diseases such as eczema, asthma, allergies) then this is a good start. This recipe still uses cocoa powder but the more used to carob you get you get start doing half carob powder half cocoa and then eventually just carob. Here is the carob powder I order off of Amazon.
