Chocolate , just hearing the word alone evokes images of luscious taste sensations comparable to no other sweet confection. Since the first cacao bean was cultivated around 250 AD chocolate’s smooth, velvety, creamy texture combined with its intense rich flavor has been seducing men and women for centuries. The Mayans, who established the first known cacao plantations and developed the first recipe for hot chocolate, and the Aztecs, who flavored their chocolate with chili peppers, would be in awe of how far chocolate has evolved to be enjoyed not only by the elite, but all around the world.
