from cocoa beans, chilli peppers and various spices by the Ancient Maya. We
had a chance to make and sample Xocolatl this week, using dark
chocolate, chilli and cinnamon powder and milk.
It tastes quite different to modern drinking chocolate: bitter,
spicy, powdery and lumpy in texture. A step by step guide and our reaction
to tasting Xocolatl for the first time is captured in the slideshow below.
