Just about everybody loves chocolate, and dessert holds a close second! Combine the two together, and you get a combination that's out of this world. Amazingly, History states that chocolate was originally consumed as a "bitter beverage." As far back as 1900 B.C., the Mayans and the Aztecs ground the the cacao beans to make a hot drink. Not until the 1500s would sugar be combined with chocolate. Today, chocolate is an integral part of many desserts.
