**What are cocoa nibs?
Nibs are bits of fermented, dried, roasted and crushed cacao bean. That's it! Nibs you buy in a health food or gourmet grocery store are just chocolate that hasn't been ground and mixed with sugar yet. They're extremely good for you, and have an intense chocolatey taste, but aren't sweet at all.
