Handmade chocolate from Bern

The first worshippers of chocolate, the Aztecs, considered it a "gift" of the gods. Nowadays the average Swiss buys more than 11 kilograms a year, making them the greatest chocoholics in the world. Not surprising considering the treats you find in traditional confectionaries, such as the one swissinfo visited in Bern. (swissinfo, Raffaella Rossello)
