Cocoa Nibs - 8 oz
Introducing Cocoa Nibs, a fabulous baker's secret that we are now carrying here at ChefShop.com! Ours are from Pralus, one of our favorite chocolate makers.
Cocoa (or "cacao") nibs are the essential ingredient for chocolate. They're roasted cocoa beans that have been dried, roasted, removed from their hull and broken into small, crunchy bits. They contain nothing but cocoa beans, so they're not sweet but their chocolate essence is wonderful, and since they've been roasted, they have a complex, deep flavor.
In recipes, try cocoa nibs as a substitute for toasted nuts or chocolate chips. They'll pack great flavor without adding sugar. Nibs add crunch and subtle chocolate flavor not just to baked goods, but also to savory dishes.
