Cacao Paste Wafers by Food to Live is a premium quality and Vegan product that will come in handy in a variety of sweet recipes. It is made of 100% pure cacao by slow grinding and tempering cacao beans for over 24 hours. As a result, a smooth, rich, coin-like wafer is formed. This is how wafers vary from cacao nibs which are simply chopped cacao beans without further processing. Unlike these wafers, cacao nibs cannot be melted. Our Cacao Paste Wafers are raw and unsweetened, so they retain the maximum amount of original precious nutrients.
Raw Cacao Paste Wafers Uses
Unsweetened Cacao Paste Wafers taste pretty bitter on their own and are meant to be used as a base for confectionary recipes. The shape of Cacao Paste Wafers makes it easy to melt them and use for cooking desserts, crafting homemade chocolate, candies, truffles, and nut bars. Furthermore, it’s a perfect ingredient for bakers since it can be turned into chocolate icing for cakes, cheesecakes, and muffins. If you are not into baking, try making chocolate dips for fruit, marshmallows, and cookies, or incorporate Cacao Liquor into smoothies, oatmeal, granola, and hot beverages. In some recipes, you can swap Cacao Nibs with Cacao Paste Wafers but overall, they are not interchangeable. Cacao Nibs retain their shape and do not melt the way wafers do.
