Chocolate Gems are simply candy-coated milk chocolate morsels, perfect for baking or using in a trail mix. Chocolate is derived from the cacao plant and was first cultivated by the Aztecs for a bitter drink. It was not until the Spanish brought the beans back to Europe that the beans were combined with sweeteners to suit their tastes. Chocolate as we know it was not available until the 1800's when a manufacturer discovered the process of turning the powdered beans into a smooth confection, but the rich compound has been a highly desirable item ever since.
This classic treat is guaranteed to please the young and the young at heart. Slightly under-baking the cookies ensures that they remain pleasantly soft after cooling.
