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!

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

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

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!
