Description

Hi, Im Mommypotamus. My mission is to help you put delicious, healthy meals on the table, find effective natural remedies for common complaints, make your own fuss-free personal care and home products, and save time and money in the process.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup crushed raw cacao nibs (you can buy cacao beans and shell them yourself like I did, or save yourself a whole lot of effort and buy organic pre-shelled cacao nibs here )
  • 8 oz vodka, bourbon or rum

Directions

  • Gently crush cacao nibs to help them release their flavor. This step is optional, but I find it speeds up the ripening process of the extract. I just press mine a smidge with a mallet.
  • Pour vodka/bourbon/rum over the nibs. Seal jar tightly and give the jar a good shake.
  • Store in a dark cabinet for at least three months, shaking occasionally.
  • When the extract has reached the depth of flavor you prefer - a process that can take up to six months depending on your preference - strain out the cacao beans.
  • In a freezer-safe container, place extract in the freezer overnight. Remove extract the next morning and scrape off any fat that has risen to the top.
  • Store in either a dark container/dark cabinet.
