DIY Chocolate Liqueur
Delicately sweet with a hint of bitterness, a homemade chocolate liqueur made with cacao nibs is like an expensive dark chocolate bar in your drink instead of like a jigger of Nestle Quik. Refrigeration isn't necessary, and the liqueur should keep for about 2 months.
Cacao nibs are are pieces of cacao beans that have been roasted. Many grocery and health-food stores carry them, but if yours doesn't, you can order them online from a variety of sources, including Amazon.
