Chocolate is my weakness, especially if it also involves caramel or peanut butter. Dark chocolate is the only thing I have to avoid due to migraines, but other than that I have a great relationship with chocolate. It cheers me up, make me feel better once a month, and it’s fun to see my kids get it all over their faces when they are little. With that love for chocolate, you can see why I was excited to work on this sponsored post about Greatest Moments in Chocolate History!
GREATEST MOMENTS IN CHOCOLATE HISTORY
A recipe book that is a must have for any chocolate lover, Greatest Moments in Chocolate History includes 20 classic recipes from around the world, all made with American Heritage® Chocolate! Delicious recipes aren’t the only thing inside though. You will also find chocolate fun facts, gorgeous photos and untold story of the world’s favorite indulgence.
Did you know that M&Ms were invented for WWII soldiers as the chocolate that wouldn’t melt in their hands? Or that Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV had their own personal chocolate makers? And that Thomas Jefferson predicted that chocolate would outstrip coffee as the most popular drink in America?
If you are unfamiliar with American Heritage® Chocolate, let me catch you up on the yum. It is an authentic line of chocolate products based on an ingredient list from the 1750’s, and is used to bring chocolate’s sweet history to life for visitors to historic and cultural institutions throughout North America. If you ever have the chance to experience an American Heritage® Chocolate History Demonstration, you will be treated to a multi-sensorial retelling of chocolate’s “bean to beverage” story that includes sampling an authentic drinking chocolate. Hard to keep those taste-buds in check right now isn’t it? 😉
