The Journey into the history of chocolate

Reasons for eating chocolate and times of day may vary. Sometimes with a hot
drink, sometimes just for a sweet craving. There may be moments when we find the
pleasure of chocolate in another dessert, but nothing can replace a good chocolate.
First of all, the fact that it is a ready-made consumer product attracts us. While it is
necessary to collect the ingredients, find a good recipe and spend time to make
dessert, it is enough to just want to eat chocolate.
