Anytime you add chocolate to a recipe you know its going to be good. Chocolate is one of the most popular food ingredients in the world. The earliest history of chocolate can be traced back to the Mokaya of Mexico and Guatemala. There is a history of chocolate beverages that date all the way back to 1900 BC. Cocoa originated in the Americas, but today you will find that chocolate is produced in places like Western Africa, who produces almost two-thirds of the world's cocoa, with Ivory Coast growing almost half of that amount.Chocolate should be stored away from other foods, as it easily absorbs different aromas from other foods. Ideally, chocolates are wrapped or packed, and should be placed in proper storage with the correct humidity and temperature. Additionally, chocolate is often stored in a dark place or protected from light by wrapping paper. Chocolate should not be refrigerated or frozen without proper containment, as it will absorb enough moisture to cause a whitish discoloration, this is the result of fat or sugar crystals rising to the surface. Although when this happens, it is visually unappealing, the chocolate suffering from bloom is perfectly safe for eating. Milk chocolate contains good amounts of protein, calcium and iron, with dark chocolate containing higher amounts of iron, but less calcium and protein per serving.
The use of marshmallow can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians. They would use marshmallow in recipes that would use the sap from the marshmallow plant and then mixing it with nuts and honey. Other pre-modern marshmallow recipes used the pith of the marshmallow plant, instead of the sap. The stem of the marshmallow plant would be peeled back to reveal a soft and spongy pith; that was then boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produce a soft, chewy treat. The gladiators of ancient Rome would also use the marshmallow plant, using the marshmallow plant's sap. The sap would be rubbed on the body in preparation for fights.
