8 oz - Cocoa Nibs
These Valrhona cocoa nibs are the roasted beans, separated from their husks, and broken into small bits - true chocolate!
Cocoa nibs are a favorite of professional bakers. Add them to your baked goods for great crunch and a mild chocolate flavor without adding sweetness. They're a wonderful addition to brandy snaps, meringues, or French-style macaroons.
Try them instead of chocolate chips - but keep in mind that they aren't sweet! - and make bite-sized, crunchy, cocoa nib cookies to serve with coffee or tea.
Bon Appétit suggests dropping freshly coated homemade truffles into a bowl of cocoa nibs, turning to coat. As Valrhona puts it, Laissez libre cours à votre talent - Give your talent free rein!
