suggestions for using cocoa nibs?

All I can think of is garnish-type things such as adding to oatmeal (per recipe on this site), ice cream, topping baked goods. Any other ideas? Thanks!

I love cacao nibs, mostly I admit in baked goods as a nut substitute. They also make an excellent brittle, especially for people allergic to nuts:

I am interested to see all these non-dessert suggestions!

Sprinkle on salads--especially good with a dressing made with vanilla balsamic vinegar

Cook quinoa with lemon juice, salt, and coconut oil, then fold in the cocoa nibs. Deliciously nutty, crunchy, chocolatey, and savory!
