What is the approximate size of cacao nibs?

I have some whole, roasted cacao beans that I am crushing in a mortar, but I'm not sure if they are too coarse. I'm making cookies.

They tend to be about the size of a pine nut ... or maybe even a tad smaller!

Thank you! I thought they were smaller than that, so I guess I can stop crushing the poor things now...
