The history of liqueur chocolates dates back to the Mayas , a pre-Columbian civilization that lived in Central and South America. The Mayans grew cocoa and used it to make a bitter, spicy drink. This drink was often flavored with spices and other herbs, and sometimes with liqueur. The Mayans believed cocoa was a gift from the gods, and the drink was used in religious ceremonies and celebrations.
With the arrival of Europeans, chocolate was introduced to Europe and quickly became popular with the wealthy and nobility. In the 1700s, Swiss chocolatiers began making liqueur chocolates . Initially, these chocolates were handmade and often only sold in the most exclusive chocolate boutiques.
Over the centuries, the production of liqueur chocolates has spread all over the world. Today, there are many popular chocolate brands that produce liqueur chocolates in a variety of flavors and aromas. Liqueur chocolates have become a popular gift for many occasions, such as Christmas, Valentine's Day and other holidays.
