Dark Pleasures

Why dark chocolate is good for you?

I read somewhere that dark chocolates, obtained from cocoa beans that contain flavonoids, which are plant compounds that perform antioxidant functions. The flavonoids found in dark chocolate are called flavonols. Research has proved that dark chocolate has a beneficial effect on both, your body and your mind.

Dark chocolate can also boost your mood when you are feeling down. It contains a number of compounds that are stimulatory in nature.Dark chocolate also triggers the production of endorphins by your body which gives you a feel-good sensation and reduces the ability of your body to feel pain.

So go ahead and indulge yourself with a little dark chocolate once in a while. Meanwhile, enjoy drolling over some of my little decadent Chocolate Valrhona Cupcakes frosted with Chocolate Valrhona Ganache Frosting topped with pretty pink gumpaste bows and flowers.
