The open addiction of chocoholics everywhere.
Cocoa nibs have been used for thousands of years in cooking and medicine, but only recently gained popularity as an ingredient in the modern American and European kitchen. Cocoa nibs are pieces of crushed cocoa beans. Available in bulk, cocoa nibs are the darkest, bitterest essence of chocolate flavor and possess a fantastic crunch. These cocoa pieces are quite possibly the best thing to ever possibly happen to your banana bread.
|Basic Preparation||These Cocoa Nibs are ready to be consumed as is, sprinkled over ice cream or added to a raw trail mix for a nutritional snack. Also a wonderful addition to any fruit or coconut-based smoothie.|
|Recommended Applications||Cocoa nibs are cocoa beans that have been roasted, separated from their husks and broken into smaller pieces. Cocoa nibs can be eaten as a snack or added to baked goods and other dishes for added crunch and chocolaty flavor. These flavorful little pieces also have great nutritional value. Cocoa Nibs taste vaguely similar to roasted coffee beans. Cocoa Nibs are always found in small pieces, rather than coffee bean-sized pieces. The flavor is slightly nutty and, while there are definitely some chocolate notes in there, they are primarily going to contribute texture and a hint of bitterness (the same as raw cocoa powder). Cacao nibs do serve to draw out darker notes in chocolate, which is why they are such a popular addition. Cocoa Nibs are one of the best dietary sources of magnesium as well as a good source of calcium, iron, copper, zinc and potassium. This product is naturally glutenfree and is also certified Kosher.|
