And please don't say chocolate chip cookies - I am not much of a baker and I HATE making cookies - I don't have the patience to sit there and form little drops of dough into cookies :D.

Seriously, anything quick and easy (and that doesn't use specialty vegan products like vegan margarine - though I do have substitute egg powder) that I can make with these?

this isnt going to be any help what so ever, but in this months issue of sommerfield magazine (yes that meat and cheese fest recipe brochure) there is a little interview at the back with gillian mckeith (love her or hate her) and she says she makes a fab carob brownie, but get this, completely raw. no recipe though....

Cherries are ace in choc chip muffins :)

Although I've always used glace cherries in them.

Ha ha. I almost wrote that, too. :D

I haven't tasted them in years - are they that bad? They do seem a bit pointless, seeing as normal choc chips are vegan.

My, those chocolate chip muffins do look sinful. Gotta try those :D.

Are regular chocolate chips vegan??? I looked on package of stuff like Giradelli chocolate chips and Neslie (the semi-sweet ones) and there was some kind of milk powder in them, I think.

Also, carob is supposed to be better for you (I think...)

Sorry - I meant in the UK they are usually vegan. The plain Supercook ones that are in all the supermarkets.

Or you can just buy Green and Blacks and break it up into not-so-tiny chunks of chocolatey goodness :D
