Cacao Nib Spread

DSC05518

Cacao nibs add texture and bitterness while agave lends some sweetness to creamy goat cheese.  Orange zest offers additional depth to this spread.

Ingredients
1 8-oz log of goat cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup cacao nibs
2 1/2 teaspoons blue agave nectar
1 orange
Crackers or baguette

For more about cacao nibs, read my post here on what nibs are and a variety of ways to use them.

In a large bowl, use a spatula to combine goat cheese, cacao nibs, and agave.  If serving on a baguette, slice and toast.  Spread a generous amount of goat cheese mixture onto crackers or baguette slices.  Over each cracker or baguette slice, zest a small amount of an orange using a microplane.

Enjoy!
