This year for Valentine’s Day, why not try an alternative to store bought boxed chocolate? There are many reasons to choose dark chocolate over the more traditional milk chocolate. Dark chocolate with 70-85% cocao is a good source of powerful antioxidants called flavonoids that provide heart protective benefits. What’s more, the higher the percentage of cocao in dark chocolate, the lower the sugar content, and you’ll find an increase in the minerals zinc, magnesium, calcium and copper. Dip a variety of fruit in this chocolate recipe and you’ll have additional vitamins and minerals as well as fiber from the produce you choose. No guilt included!
