Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse and Other Fudgy Treats

January 5, 2015

We can't think of a whole lot of things that can't be made better with chocolate. Any dessert with a touch of fudge is a winner and loved by everyone in the family. Bring some of these tasty treats to the table, and enjoy the rich creamy flavor of chocolate. 

Warm or cool, chocolate is the most satisfying flavor for a dessert. Don't think it's just a treat however. Chocolate can be included in a healthy lifestyle if you know what to look for. Healthy chocolate contains flavonoids and antioxidants. As long as you stick with the good stuff; that is, 70 % cacao, you can enjoy a small amount on a regular basis and actually do your body some good. 

Are you looking for how much is "a small amount?" Researchers say that women who ate 1 or 2 servings of dark chocolate a week cut their risk for heart failure by as much as 1/3. That's big benefit from a small bit of pleasurable snacking. 

Bottom line? Buy as good a quality chocolate as you can find and portion it out so you can eat a bit every day. This is not only delicious, it's good for your health!
