For one of my culinary school classes, I have to do a "chocolate" presentation. I want to bring in a chocolate goodie for my classmates to munch while I'm presenting, but I'd love to do a savory application instead of the typical dessert-y ones. I'm a broke college student, so I ain't bringing in short ribs or chili for 30 people, haha; I've had a hard time finding budget-friendly savory chocolate recipes. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Savory shortbread w cacao nibs.
From one of my favorite cookbooks, The Essence of Chocolate, by Scharffenberger and Steinberg, Goat Cheese with Nibs (pg. 264). Basically, mix crushed nibs with goat cheese, with or without a touch of honey. Chill, then form into small balls and dust w cocoa powder.
