Cacao Nib Crackers
I love anything with texture. I think part of the joy of cooking is balancing flavour and texture to give the eater the best experience possible. So it follows as the night the day that cacao nibs should be in crackers doesn't it? They maintain their crunchy texture throughout. What is more, they are a health food with amazing properties. They are literally the inside of a fermented and dried cacao bean. That is it! All natural. For those of you still wondering where to get cacao nibs from they are pretty easy to source through health food suppliers. They may just change your chocolate life!
