Chocolate is made using sugar and cocoa. There are different types of cocoa. Also, the more cocoa is used, then the healthier the chocolate will be. To start from scratch, a farmer must harvest the cacao pods. Then the cook must take the cacao and ground the beans into a powder. Sugar, cocoa butter, and cocoa liquor are mixed together.
Sometimes milk or vanilla is added. In order to mix these ingredients together so that they won’t separate, something needs to be added to make sure these things stay mixed together. Sometimes, soy is added. Chocolate is usually mixed together for at least three days. Manufacturing companies have big machines that do this. The last step is the tempering step which deals with the chocolate’s texture.
