Fun Nutrition Facts:

Dark Chocolate

  • Melting chocolate in a double boiler helps prevent burning and maintains the rich flavor of the chocolate. If you don’t have a double boiler, heat water in a large skillet, bring to a simmer, place a smaller sauce pan with chocolate into the larger skillet with warm water and let the chocolate melt. Mixing as needed.

  • Sea salt brings out the cocoa flavor making it the perfect sprinkle

  • Dark Chocolate is rich in antioxidants and helps protect your body from free radicals.

  • Dark chocolate helps maintain skin’s radiance by improving blood flow and helps with hydration.

  • Dark chocolate contains flavanols that helps to improve heart health and reduces the risk of stroke and blood clots.

  • Dark chocolate contains polyphenols which can increase HDL (good cholesterol) and reduce LDL (bad cholesterol).

  • Dark chocolate is a mood elevator! It contains theobromine which effects the nervous system like a cup of coffee. When you consume dark chocolate, you feel focused, alert, and energized. It also releases serotonin which produces endorphins that make you feel good!
