Recipe ideas using raw cacao beans

Here is an ancient recipe I found which even sounds historic form it's name: the Mayan hot chocolate. Roast, peel and grind the cacao beans into a paste. Add this paste to aniseed, cardamon, vanilla & pepper, then mix the lot with hot water for a great original hot chocolate!

My personal favourite: it is a real pity that I do not know how to make my own chocolate... yet! In the meantime, I do not waste any part of the cacao bean: simply dry roast them in a pan until it stops popping, used the peel to make cacao tea and dip the flesh in honey for a yummy and powerfully healthy energy boost!
