Hot chocolate is a favorite delicacy for candy houndsDelicate and creamy, hot chocolate tastes magnificently. Mixed with coffee or liquor, it delivers unforgettable feeling of joy, for chocolate is the best remedy for depression served in many Almaty coffee shops!

The secret of the beverage has come to us from ancient Maya and Aztecs. Beverage made from cocoa beans had a specific meaning for their culture and was considered divine. Aztecs called it “chocolatle”. The name of modern chocolate had originated from this very word. It was served only on special occasions and only noble males, priests, warriors or those meant to be offered as a victim to grim Indian deities were allowed to drink it. It was assumed that chocolatle granted wisdom, rejuvenation and improves sexual vigor.

This has become the basis for the modern recipe.

Now there’s a wide variety of hot chocolate recipes, with many different ingredients mixed at various rates. In France, for example, hot chocolate is liquid and has the consistency of coffee, while Italians prefer ropy and creamy beverage with consistency similar to that of sour cream. Nevertheless, all the experts agree on the fact that hot chocolate is very tasty and healthy as well. Also, the more cocoa it has, the more healthy it is considered
