So, what is cacaos?

Cacaos, also known as cocoa beans, are small, dark-brown colored seeds that come from the Theobroma cacao tree. They are a popular ingredient in many sweet treats such as chocolate bars, cakes, and cookies. Cacaos have a rich, complex flavor with notes of fruity, floral, and nutty undertones. They are a good source of antioxidants, fiber, and iron. To prepare cacaos for use in recipes, they are usually roasted, cracked, and ground into a fine powder or melted into a liquid form. Whether enjoyed on their own or used as a key ingredient in baked goods, cacaos are a beloved and essential part of many people's diets.
