    In 1519, a Spanish explorer named Harnan Cortes set out with an army to fight the Aztecs. The Aztecs were a fierce group of people. After many battles the Aztecs emperor, Montezuma wanted to make peace and he invited Cortes to court. He gave Cortes his first taste of chocolate.

Cortes liked the chocolate but he still conquered the Aztecs. In 1528, when Cortes sailed home, his sacks were bursting with Aztecs treasure... including cocoa beans.
