STORAGE 

How do I store my cacao? 

If you're planning to use your cacao up quickly (within 2 months) you can store it in your pantry! If you're planning to keep it longer than 2 months, feel free to store it in your fridge or freezer and defrost before using each time. 

PREPERATION

How do I prepare my cacao? 

There are several ways to prepare cacao! Our favorite is in a drink! Use a knife to scrape the cacao block on a cutting board and you'll have shavings you can do so much with! 
1. Use in a drink (See Recipes page) 
2. Use in baking! (make sure you add a sweetener of your choice!) 
3. Use as an addition to your coffee or any drink of your choice.
