Default 1879

In 1879 Rodolphe Lindt of Berne, Switzerland, produced chocolate that
melted on the
tongue. He invented "conching," a means of heating and rolling
chocolate to refine it.
After chocolate had been conched for 72 hours and had more cocoa
butter added to it,
the original "fondant" was created.
