Cacao nibs are so underrated! They’re the least processed form of cacao, affordable and incredibly nutritious. Cacao nibs are the broken pieces of roasted cacao beans and have no sugar. They have a nutty and bitter chocolate flavour. It’s a pantry staple in my kitchen!
These stove top caramelised cacao nibs are bittersweet and slightly spicy. The result is a crunchy, sweet and spicy wholesome treat. I love to add this recipe to chopped fruit, coconut yogurt, granola, pancakes or sprinkle on top of homemade chocolate bark.
