COCOA NIB BRITTLE
By themselves, cocoa nibs seem just crunchy! When added to hot molten sugar they become sweet and crunchy chocolate goodness!
2 cups sugar
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup cocoa nibs
- Dash sea salt
- (Nuts may be added, see method)
Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat, covered tightly with a curved lid. Cook for approximately 7 minutes before removing lid to prevent crystallization of sugar. The mixture, at this point should be slightly golden in color; continue cooking until amber in color. Add nuts, if using, & stir to coat. Remove from heat and add nibs. Pour onto silicone lined sheet pan. Cool completely for service.
