Chocolate comes from a fruit
called a pod that grows on the cacao
tree. A seedling tree generally must
mature for five years before it
produces pods, with peak pod
production happening at 10 years. A
cocoa tree can bear fruit and
produce pods for 30 to 40 years.
Each pod is similar in size to a
football, and contains up to 50 cocoa
beans. To make one ounce of milk
chocolate, it takes 4 cocoa beans, and
one ounce of dark chocolate requires 12 beans. An average
American or Canadian will consume about 12 pounds of chocolate
per year. However, the Swiss are the world’s largest consumers of
chocolate, eating about 22 pounds of chocolate per person per
year!
Chocolate can be bittersweet, and we don’t mean literally.
Although chocolate has many benefits to your health, some facts
about how chocolate is made may make you want to munch on a
different snack, or at least lower your chocolate intake.

5. Place the icing sugar into a shallow dish.
