Can you imagine your favourite chocolate taking part in each of your dishes?
We bring you suggestions to make cocoa the perfect ingredient to round off your dishes and make them more appetizing.
Our roasted cocoa nibs coated with 70% cocoa chocolate can be the ideal accompaniment to any meal. Let us show you how.
1. As a decoration or ingredient in pastries
Our nibs are the perfect toppings for both cakes and biscuits, giving them the intensity they need to balance out the sweetness of these pastries.
Tip: we recommend adding them once the dough is baked to prevent the nib topping from melting.
2. As a complement to your breakfasts or snacks
We suggest adding them to your morning or mid-afternoon toasts. Thus, you can have a light breakfast or snack, with the energy value you need to start the day or face the afternoon with strength!
Our star combination is:
- Spelt toast
- Fresh cheese
- Our nibs as toppings
Tip: try adding fruit or avocado for that missing touch of freshness! This will give you an explosion of flavours and a balanced but delicious snack.
3. As an ingredient to your salads
Add a crunchy touch to your salad with our cocoa nibs and let yourself be surprised by the contrast of flavours and enjoy the intrinsic properties of cocoa.
Tip: if you want to add fibre to your diet, a delicious way is to incorporate our cocoa nibs, which are high in fibre and would be an ideal complement to your healthy dishes.
4. As a topping to cold textures
The combination of vanilla ice cream with our cocoa nibs is perfect for hot summer days. All the freshness and delicacy of this ice cream with the crunchy and intense touch of our nibs, a perfect balance between high percentages and a soft sweetness; a surprising mix.
In both hot and cold seasons, we recommend combining our cocoa nibs with yogurt to achieve the same crunchy touch within the creaminess of this dairy product.
5. As a snack to accompany your cocktails
Gin and tonic: One of the most popular combinations made with gin, tonic, and a mix of tasty ingredients such as fruit or spices.
Tip: we recommend pairing the drink with our cocoa nibs to counterbalance and balance the rest of the ingredients. We make sure it is cold and… enjoy!
