Shelled Brazil nuts can be eaten whole as snacks or covered in chocolate as a confection. They can also be sliced, chopped, or ground and used in sweet and savory dishes, such as cookies and cakes or salads and stuffing. Since they have a similar taste, Brazil nuts can replace macadamia nuts as well as coconuts in most recipes. For ease in opening hard Brazil nut shells, soak the nuts in water and boil them to soften the shell.
