What are cacao nibs?

sables

I found that most people just looked at me funny when I said cacao nibs, some did ask. Cacao nibs are essentially the edible raw material that chocolate is made of; so dark chocolate flavor without the fat and sugar added. Of course, then I embedded them in butter and sugar.

I roasted my cacao nibs myself because I only found raw ones. And the recipe in Alice Medrich’s book calls for whole wheat flour but I have lots of spelt flour.  I have been eating them for breakfast.

In conclusion…and I say it every time; Cookies are boring, i.e. easy. I will say that they take a lovely photograph.
