Step 1: In a pot or microwave-safe bowl, melt the coconut oil and carob chips. Continue mixing if using a pot since it will melt quickly. If you are using a microwave, melt for no longer than 20 seconds and stir.

Step 2: If you desire, put mini cupcake liners in your silicone pan. This will make them easier to remove but is not necessary.

Step 3: Carefully spoon the melted carob mix into the mold and press some of the coating onto the sides and bottom. This can quickly be done with the back of a spoon. If your mixture is hardening, you can place it inside another bowl of hot water to keep it from hardening.
