Making chocolate is a lot more disgusting than you think

Have you ever wondered how chocolate is made?
Alright, let’s go from cacao pod to chocolate bar today on this super-intensive video. I am not going to lie, although this was a lot of fun, it was also a lot of hard work.

In total, this process took me over 2 months, not because the process takes this long, but because I messed up a few times had to start over, as well as deal with some week-long camera issues that didn’t allow me to film. However in my folly, I learned a lot, and I hope to pass what I learned on so you don’t make the same pitfalls I did.

Chocolate making is a very complicated and intricate process, but today, I am going to show you my simplistic attempt at making chocolate, however, even with my plebian attempt at chocolate, it still turned out really well.

Chocolate making has more or less 4 steps:
0:00 Intro
2:04 Fermentation
3:49 Drying and roasting
5:34 Grinding
7:59 Heating and forming

============= Full Recipe ==================…
