Chocolate lovers… Hear ye, hear ye! Chocolates… sinful? Nah… These three chocolate desserts will tempt you out of your guilt!
I once read this “wise” quote: Chocolate comes from cocoa bean, which comes from the fruit of a cocoa tree. Therefore, chocolate is, in fact, a fruit!
Chocolate, particularly dark chocolate which has a higher percentage of cocoa, has many benefits. Your heart will benefit from indulging in two servings of dark chocolate a day. The key thing to remember is never to go to extremes! Do you know that it also helps you curb diabetes? This is because it contains flavonoids that help to control your insulin sensitivity.
And as for you professional women out there who work in a high-pressured environment, don’t feel guilty when you indulge in a piece or two of chocolate because chocolate helps you to reduce stress!
So, here are 3 not-so-sinful-after-all delicious chocolate desserts for you (and your friends) to indulge in!
I love this recipe because it really brings out the bitter-sweet taste of the chocolate. This is especially dedicated to those who are gluten-intolerant because, in my book, everyone deserves a chance to enjoy chocolate!
Ingredients (serves 6-8):
TIP: To serve, top the cake slice with 2 – 3 spoons of mixed berries dusted with icing sugar. You might want to serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on the side.
This recipe is perfect for those who don’t have an oven!
Ingredients (serves 6-8):
TIP: To cut the cake, dip your knife into hot water before cutting to provide a smooth cut. To decorate, you might want to place a Maltesers on top of every slice just to make it look more presentable!
If you love frappuccinos, you’ll love this recipe! It’s perfect for a night in with the girls while watching silly romantic movies and slurping away your cocktails! You will need a strong blender to blend but not melt the ice.
I hope that these are recipes you can’t resist. Everyone deserves to treat themselves, so why don’t you? Wishing you a chocolaty day!
