Chocolate is the most popular sweet treat in the world! people consume more than 3 million pounds of cocoa beans a year. Chocolate is made from Cacao trees that produce pods that are filled with up to 50 beans covered in white pulp. The seeds are harvested by hand and placed outdoors covered in banana leaves where they are left to ferment to bring out the chocolate flavor. The beans are roasted and the hulls are removed. The remaining part of the bean is called the Nib. The nibs are ground and made into a paste called chocolate liquor. Chocolate liquor is the main source of unsweetened baking chocolate.
