Moloaʻa Bay Chocolate - Roasted Cacao NibsMoloa'a Bay Chocolate
Moloa'a Bay Chocolate Roasted Cacao Nibs are 100% pure chocolate grown on the north shore of Kaua'i! Hand-picked on our Moloa'a Bay farm, then fermented, sun dried, roasted, and packaged at our solar-powered facility in Kapa'a. After we roast our cacao beans, we use a machine called a winnower to separate the nibs from the outside skin (husk). The resulting nibs have a tangy, slightly bitter dark chocolate taste, which makes it an ideal ingredient to be used in both sweet and savory recipes. No sugar has been added, making it a healthy way to enjoy the delicious taste of chocolate, as well as chocolate's anti-aging antioxidants, magnesium, iron, and fiber, among many other benefits.
There are so many ways to enjoy roasted cacao nibs:
- Sprinkle on top of ice cream, yogurt, or a smoothie bowl
- Blend into a smoothie for a healthier version of a chocolate smoothie or milkshake
- Replace chocolate chips with cacao nibs in cookies and other desserts
- Mix in to granola or muesli for a crunchy, chocolate flavor
- Incorporate into a crust for a savory entree (see this recipe for cacao nib and fennel encrusted pork tenderloin)
- Grind to a powder to use in a sauce (chocolate is one of the key ingredients in Mexican mole sauce)
- Make a cold brew cacao drink
