Chocolate – a favorite indulgent for many and even good for you!  Of course the darker the chocolate, the more health benefits.  Look  for the percentage of dark chocolate on the package – 45% is a good start to add some more nutrition and still flavorful.

The recipe below is a great way to include pure cocoa while adding some antioxidants for your next chocolate treat!
