Making the chocolate starts by removing the fresh cacao beans from their pods, and peeling the skin. Then it is dried under the heat of the sun. The cacao beans are roasted (like coffee) for at least 3 hours and grinded manually. While grinding the beans the mixture becomes oily because of the cocoa butter would ooze out from the beans. The blend is mixed with sugar, and then forming it into balls.
