Raw Carob Fudge Bites

I simply love this desert!! We first tried it at a friends place when we first moved to Toowoomba and it has been a quick go to ever since. This is the desert I throw together when I only have five minutes to prepare. If you need it to set in a hurry, place it in the freezer to set but be sure to cut it before its completely frozen or after defrosting slightly so as to avoid it cracking. Special thanks to Nat Haslam and family for your kind hospitality and friendship and for sharing this delicious desert with us. :)

1 Cup Desiccated coconut
1 Cup Carob Powder
1 Cup Coconut Oil
1 Cup Hulled Tahini
1/2 cup Honey (some people use more but I find it plenty sweet enough)
8 drops peppermint essential oil (optional)

Process all ingredients in food processor on medium speed until combined (about 1 minute)
Pour mixture into a tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle with desiccated coconut.
Place in fridge to set.

slice into bite-size pieces and store in the freezer to pull out when needed. leave in refrigerator for about 1 hour or at room temp for a few minutes prior to serving.

Alternative: Spoon into silicone ice-cube tray and freeze. Pop fudge bites out once frozen. This is a little more time consuming but sometimes I like to make mine into cute shapes :)
