Dark chocolate loves you, and you will love my choc-chip cookies

Don’t you love it when your favourite foods climb another rung of respectability when you know they’re actually good for you?

Brenda Janschek - Dark Chocolate Loves You and You Will Love My Choc Chip Cookies
And when you can sprout forth on such diverse topics as antioxidants, flavanoids and LDL while going weak at the knees upon hearing the words mousse, ganache, or even cake, you know you are a servant to your dark master.

But it’s not a guilty pleasure, and you don’t need to step behind the big pot plant to consume it, even if moderation is advised (as in all things, except chocolate……..just kidding!).

The best thing about dark chocolate is that it gives you yet another reason to drink red wine, as if you needed one! You could even follow that up with another uncontrollable slip about antioxidants.

C’mon people, I know I had you at ‘chocolate’.
