What to do with Carob Molasses?

exotic ingredient: Carob Molasses - how do I use it?

I was at my tiny/weird local grocery store today, and saw something called Carob Molasses.. and since I love carob and love molasses I thought I'd grab it and take it home and look up some recipes.

however, I'm finding the internet to be a little bleak on recipes with it, so other than just substituting it into recipes that call for blackstrap, does anyone know any uses for this?

that would make an interesting base for barbecue sauce for chicken, I'd think.

Dilute and use as vanilla ice cream topping?

Barbecue sauce for chicken or tofu, or maybe sub for chocolate in a mole?

I think I'd use it for anything that molasses would taste good in. Snickerdoodles? BBQ sauce?

I reckon it would go well in cake icing.

Since carob is chocolaty in taste, these chocolate molasses cookies would be an excellent place for carob molasses.

Mix with tahini spread on a warm pita
