The chocolate from Modica in Sicily, Italy, is a special type of chocolate that is coarsely ground in stone mills. So the cocoa beans are not processed in classic conches as it happens normally. The stone mills do not grind the chocolate beans finely, and this gives this chocolate a special mealy texture.
The chocolate from Modica can be eaten as it is, or used to make drinking chocolate.
