Chocolate and cocoa powder both come from beans that grow in pods on trees in the tropics. The beans are harvested from the pods and fermented. After the beans are dried, roasted and cracked, cocoa butter is extracted. This leaves a dark brown paste which is dried and ground to make unsweetened cocoa powder.
