Mexican Chocolate Candy
Chocolate is irresistible, from its succulent aroma, to its rich texture and sweet flavor. It has been a favorite treat through generations, a sweet that goes as far back as the ancient Mayans and was later adopted by the Aztecs. The Aztec natives made a variety of beverages with chocolate; they would combine it with spices, vanilla, honey, seeds and nuts. These chocolate drinks were used for rituals by priests and nobleman. Chocolate was so adored by the Aztecs, that it was used as both currency and food. They later introduced it to the Spaniards who became so fascinated by the flavor that they took chocolate back to Spain where it became so popular to the point that it was the King’s Official Drink in the New Spain and Europe. Around the end of the 18th century, Europeans began to prepare chocolate by blending it with milk and sugar in order to create what is known today as “hot chocolate”. It is because of the popularity of the drink in Europe that Manufacturers began to make pots and cups that were specifically for serving chocolate.
Besides being used for beverages, chocolate has also been used to make delicious candy bars and sweets, as well as being deliciously combined with cookies, wafers, marshmallows, gummies or flakes and with flavors such as strawberry, hazelnut, eggnog (rompope), vanilla and many others. As well as being the basis of many candy and dessert recipes, for example chocolate cakes and cookies. It is because of its unique taste that chocolate has become a favorite among kids and adults.
