NOTES FROM MOM
I checked 4 local stores for the Carob Chips and couldn't find any. I ended up ordering them from a place called NUTS ONLINE. They arrived safe and sound in 3 days.
I had to add quite a bit of flour to the dough to make it stiff enough to roll out. But once enough flour was added, the dough was very easy to work with.
I didn't use 2 cups of Carob Chips as called for in the recipe. It was more like just a little over a cup. That was plenty to coat all the biscuits.
Amber and Max are sharing (only because I make them) the treats with the rest of their pack members. They all really love them. And the Carob Chips takes care of any chocolate cravings they might have
OK....Back to Amber!
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
