I believe they're bits of the cocoa bean. I know they're not the chips we bake with.

Here's what I found and, if you can't find them locally, they are available to purchase online:

Cocoa nibs

Other names: chocolate nibs

Cacao Nibs are perfectly roasted cocoa beans separated from their husks and broken into small bits. They are the essence of chocolate. Nibs add crunchiness and subtle chocolate flavor to baked goods and savory dishes. They make a great substitute for roasted nuts or chocolate chips, without added sweetness

From the Chocolate Fetish website:

"Chocolate Nibs

Chocolate Nibs are the center of the Cocoa Bean, and the base of all chocolate. After the outer shells of the individual beans have been removed, the nibs are roasted and ground. Chocolate/Cocoa liquor is what all chocolates and chocolate products are made from. Nibs without the addition of sugar, Cocoa butter and milk solids are bitter and somewhat crumbly, and taste very strongly of chocolate"

You can purchase online if you wish.
