The Mayas were likely the first to create chocolate beverages about 2,000 years ago. By 1400 AD, cocoa drinks were a very important part of culture among the Aztecs. Mexicans were the ones to introduce the New World to hot chocolate, and thereafter, it was then popular in Europe, as well. Today, hot chocolate is often made from cocoa powder, chocolate shavings or melted chocolate, which is then combined with hot water or milk. While today hot chocolate is mainly consumed for pleasure, prior to the 19th century, the beverage had medicinal uses, such as to treat diseases of the stomach and liver.
