8 Incredible Ways to Cook with Cacao Nibs

Cacao nibs have been big on the culinary scene for a while, and now it’s time to get them going on in your own kitchen. Cacao nibs are small bits of the unprocessed cocoa bean; they have a subtle crunch that’s similar to coffee beans, and a rich, pleasantly bitter chocolate flavor. Since cacao nibs aren’t sweet at all, they work wonderfully as a contrasting point in all kinds of sweets — from smoothies to breakfast recipes to desserts.
