February is National Chocolate Month and it is no coincidence that it comes in the same month as Valentine’s Day. From the ancient Mayans, who created a drink from cacao beans to the Swiss and Milton Hersey who created the wonderful candy we know today, chocolate is the sweet treat that everyone loves.
