I have recently been trying out very old chocolate recipes (Aztec etc) and there is one that I remember hearing of but cannot find.

Somewhere I remember hearing that fairly early on when chocolate was being introduced in Europe, some Spanish chocolate makers were selling a block of chocolate that was sold as something like a 'piece of the Americas' or similar. The block contained not only chocolate but maybe a dozen kinds of food that had been recently brought back from the Americas, like tomato, potato, etc.

I would really like to find a recipe for this and try it out, just out of curiosity--but I cannot remember where I heard of it or what it was called, so I have nowhere to start. Has anyone heard of anything like this?
