How to make chocolate in case of a zombie apocalypse

From "The toaster project", in which Thomas Thwaites proposed himself to build a toaster (an everyday object) from scratch, I started to think a lot about all the technological advances that would be lost if a catastrophe would shatter humanity.

So here I begin my contribution to save something of human culture.

If the zombie apocalypse has caught you near a cocoa plantation with this post in hand, and you felt a sudden crave to eat chocolate, you’ll know what to do to make yourself this essential item of modern culture.

I have not yet discovered how to separate the cocoa butter from the cocoa itself... but hey, Google is expected to survive.
