SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made these with a buddy of mine for our own personal vegan candy the day before Halloween and they were superb! We used chocolate instead of carob, since it was we already had and messed up the double-boiling big time. We had the heat too high and the chips thickened into a fudgey-paste instead of a liquid, so instead of dipping the balls we re-rolled them with the paste intertwined into them. Made them messier to eat, but the flavor was not in the least sacrificed. The whole batch was gone within three days (main contributor being myself).  ;)b

I tried some room-temp, refrigerated, and frozen, and I have to say they taste the best left in the freezer. We also got a kick out of using the silly names for the ingredients.  ^-^ Overall, this is a very fun and delicious recipe.  :)>>>
