Suggestions needed for spent raw cacao nibs

I've just made some chocolate vodka, soaking raw cacao in vodka for a week or so. The result is a rather nice, light brown, unsweetened chocolate flavoured vodka, and a pile of less chocolate-y than before raw cacao, tasting distinctly of alcohol.I know what to do with the vodka, but has anyone any suggestions for the cacao?Incidentally, this experiment was prompted after making 7.5 litres of quince gin (and the only use for the leftover quince was to throw it away).MarkSee More
