Made my first rondayvoo with them real chocolate nibs. I followed this guy's method:

It's a bit of effort for a small reward, but the chocolate tasted authentic and fantastic. Like the highest grade you could buy at a high class chocolate store. I guess because it was 100% real.

Like he advised i added cardemom, chili and cinnamon. All good. A deep rich flavor that just doesn't quit.

I used some Truvia crystals I had left over instead of a liquid sweetener but next time I'll try my liquid sweetener, I think it should work.

Only problem I had is no stone mortar and pestle so I couldn't heat my metal one in the microwave like he did. I didn't think to just put hot water in it instead to heat it up. I should have, because the chocolate hardened so much in the mortar that I had to really work to scrape it out. As a result my chocolate was a little flaky.

It is very sticky stuff, it could be used as glue as well. Delicious glue.
