Rachel Allen’s recipes for peanut butter blondies, coconut macaroons and moreish mousse are chocolate heaven

It’s thought cacao trees were discovered around 450BCE in Mexico and cacao soon became revered and prized as a valuable gift from the gods. The beans were fermented and, with spices or maize added, made into a bitter-flavoured medicinal hot drink; an aphrodisiac and for inner strength. I loved the Mexican hot chocolate when I was travelling around the country; sugar, cinnamon and water were added to the ground, fermented, roasted beans to make a light, restorative drink that’s quite different to our version here.
