Good uses for cocoa nibs

karykat | Nov 19, 2012 08:17 PM

I put together a gift basket for a friend. One thing I included was a small bag of cocoa nibs.

I was thinking these could make snacks.

But my friend has tried them and is saying they are kind of bitter. What would be good uses for them?

I've seen recipes for putting them in cakes or brownies. I think you could put a few on top of cake or cupcakes for decoration. I think I've heard about putting them in coffee.

What else?

And if my friend doesn't do much baking, what would be good uses for her? Covering the nibs with a little chocolate so that they are sweeter? Anything else?

(I saw that some of the nibs on sale were covered with something sweet. But the ones I ended up buying are plain.)

Thanks for your ideas!
