How is Chocolate Made?

It may be surprising, but chocolate actually starts out as a plant called cacao. This bean is harvested and shipped to chocolate factories around the world, from Hershey's in Pennsylvania to the Ferrero Group in Italy. They then make their chocolate from scratch, mixing it with other ingredients like condensed milk and sugar.
