Brief guide to how Chocolate is made:
After fermenting, drying and roasting, the cacao beans are then finely ground to make a thick paste called 'chocolate liquor'. This is the base ingredient in chocolate and contains cacao and cocoa butter. As chocolate is a recipe, other ingredients such as sugar, emulsifiers, flavourings and cocoa powder are then added to achieve the type of chocolate required.
