Carob Clusters

 
I love it when food transports you back to a particular place and time in your life. This recipe takes me to my friend Nicole’s kitchen, some years ago when we were both homeschooling our children. I was feeling happy and relaxed, as her, then 5-year-old, son how to make these sticky, chewy nutty treats.
 
I’m grateful to Nicole for the original version of the recipe and for the feeling of peace I get whenever I think of her.
