The origin of Cioccolato di Modica, or Modica chocolate , is doubtful: Aztecs or Spaniards?
Some sources report that the particular processing of the cocoa mass in combination with sugar was introduced by the Spanish rulers in the County of ModicaIn theXVI century who learned from the Aztecs the technique ofprocessing ofcocoa beans through the use of metate(a type of millstone used for processing grains and seeds). The Aztecs, at the time,they were unaware of the existence of sugarandthey used to consume cocoa in liquid form. The first to add sugar to the bitter mass of cocoa were the Spaniards, the real fathers of the first archaic form of chocolatewhich spread rapidly in all their domains, including the County of Modica which, over the centuries, has made chocolate its recognized distinctive elementall over the world .
