Chocolate is easily one of the most popular ingredients for dessert foods in the world. It’s made from the cacao beans, which are the cacao plant’s seeds. Cacao was first grown in Central America, and later South America and West Africa. Today it’s used in all sorts of desserts including cookies, cakes, brownies, and others.
