World's oldest chocolate was made 5300 years ago—in a South American rainforest Our love affair with chocolate is much older than we thought, and newly discovered traces of cocoa on ancient pots suggest it started in the rainforests of what is now Ecuador some 5300 years ago. That's nearly 1500 years older than earlier evidence [...]

This vegan chocolate frosting is so good it will make you swear I'm inherently skeptical of recipes that seem to be making something delicious into something healthy—those three-ingredient waffles that have made the vegan, gluten-free, and paleo recipe rounds are a rubbery, appalling lie. I only agreed to try this [...]

Here's Where to Find the Best Chocolate Made in Hawaii - Huffington Post

That’s especially true for Hawaiian cocoa, which will surprise anyone who thinks they know what chocolate tastes like. Hawaii is the only state in the U. S. where cacao can grow, and because it’s an island ecosystem, “you have all these pockets of different flavors,” Nat explained, because of the varying weather systems. “They say if you don’t like the weather in Hawaii you can just go to the next valley and it’ll be different. However, no one attempted to make chocolate from the plant in Hawaii for almost 100 years. Bean-to-bar makers have cropped up all over the islands, mostly calling their chocolate “tree to bar. ” That means they take “bean to bar” one step further: They grow the cacao themselves as well as ferment, dry, roast, grind, and smoothen it into chocolate.

Good-for-you chocolate chip recipes for National Chocolate Chip Day - NOLA.com

May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Day (There's also a National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day on Aug. 4, if you're keeping track of such things), so we figured that was as good a reason as any to spotlight a few of the healthier chocolate cookie choices on shelves. It's pretty much impossible to find a truly healthy cookie on store shelves - real cookies - not protein bars flavored or shaped like cookies. The seemingly diabetes-friendly Murray's Sugar-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies are still essentially just white flour and artificial sweeteners (acesulfame potassium and sucralose) - and cookie-for-cookie, they're about the same calories and carbs as... Vegan chocolate chip cookies may look promising, like those by the Alternative Baking Company , but feature white flour, sugar and a host of other.

Pork pâté, dark chocolate and berry jam from Utah make the finals of the Good Food Awards — the Oscars of delicious eating

For a skilled butcher, a Utah chocolatemaker and a jam producer, being finalists for the 2018 Good Food Awards is like being nominated for an Academy Award. “For a small producer, it’s equivalent to a filmmaker winning an Oscar,” said John Francis, who owns and operates Salt Lake City’s Amour Spreads with his wife, Casee. The national honor is given to artisan food producers who use fresh and sustainable ingredients and whose food tastes delicious. It’s given in 15 categories, from beer and...

A Historic Kitchen Utensil Captures What it Takes to Make Hot Chocolate From Scratch

At first glance, the curious implement—a carved, hand-painted wooden stick, 11.5 inches long, with a slender handle at one end and a knob at the other—appears unprepossessing enough. Yet the kitchen tool, currently on display as part of the "Mexican Treasures of the Smithsonian" exhibition at the S. Dillon Ripley Center in Washington, D.C., represents the history of a culture and the epic story of a passionately desired product. The molinillo, or stirrer—this one dating from the 1930s—is a...
