Chocolate of Modica

The Cioccolato di Modica ("Chocolate of Modica", also known as cioccolata modicana) is an Italian P.A.T. specialty chocolate,[1] typical of the municipality of Modica in Sicily, characterized by an ancient and original recipe that gives the chocolate a peculiar grainy texture and aromatic flavor.[2][3]

The specialty, inspired by the Aztec original recipe for Xocoatl, was introduced in the County of Modica by the Spaniards, during their domination in the southern Italy.[4][5]

Since 2009 a festival named "Chocobarocco" is held every year in the city.[6][7]
