While we were dropping by Whole Foods today, I saw a 8 oz.bag of  
cacao nibs and bought it.

I also bought an 8 ox bag of chocolate covered cacao nibs. These I  
assume are to be eaten straight like candy.

I had in mind using the cacao nibs to try some of the 16th century  
chocolate recipes. I have some of these recipes in the Florilegium. I  
don't know how far this bag will go, but a quick search on the web  
finds recipes for using cacao nibs in cookies and a few other items.  
I saw one mention of a steak seasoning that contained cacao nibs, I  
guess for a mole like taste.

Does anyone have any good suggestions or recipes that they've made  
using cacao nibs?
