TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
The heart of the cacao bean, Malagos Cocoa Nibs are what is left after roasting, when the beans (or seeds) are cracked open and the husk is removed. The nibs are usually ground, and that is what is used to make chocolate.
Cocoa nibs are bitter and chocolatey in flavor, packed with nutrients and health benefits, making them not only great for baking, but a great healthy snack.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Adding cocoa nibs to a balanced diet will greatly boost your health. Here are some ways you can use them:
- Sprinkle them on top of your oatmeal and yogurt, or mix them into your protein shakes.
