  11. Glad to find a delicious chocolate tart without all the fat. I think heavy cream is the naughty ingredient in most of them, so you did well here. If this tastes half as good as it looks, I would be happy-yum!

  20. Dark chocolate provides a wide variety of both physical and mental benefits. In addition to providing a natural boost of serotonin, dark chocolate also offers antioxidants that promote good physical health. Chocolate maintains a reputation as an unhealthy food mainly because milk chocolate is more widely promoted and thus, more popular. Milk chocolate is cheaper to make and is more common, but recipes like this should be introduced to children at a younger age in order to help them a preference for dark chocolate versus the less healthy milk chocolate option.

  21. Dark chocolate is one of those few treats that actually have health benefits. Some benefits come from resveratrol,which is an antioxidant that is also found in red wine, among other products. It's mental health benefits include the ability to boost brain levels of endorphins as well as serotonin, which is considered a mood-altering chemical on which many antidepressants act.Dark chocolate also may increase serotonin production in the gut, and thus help strengthen the immune system.Among these benefits, it may help reduce blood pressure and increase arterial blood flow, reduce the chance of blood clots and lower bad cholesterol.
