Even though the world didn't end in December of 2012, don't diss the Mayans. Along with the Aztecs, they used to sip something they called Xocolatl as a health tonic, which we know today as chocolate. Late nineteenth-century Swiss chocolatiers developed the conching technique to produce the smooth feel of solid chocolate, which paved the way for today's chocolate bar. On our list of the Top 10 Chocolate Bars you will encounter Swiss, Belgian and French pioneers along with modern artisanal chocolatiers who innovate by adding bacon and hemp seeds. The serotonin-boosting alkaloid in chocolate that makes people feel so happy when eating it is called theobromine, or "food of the gods," and you'll find that's quite a fitting description of the luxurious bars on this tasty list!
