3 irresistible dark chocolate recipes that will make your mouth water

Most of the commercial chocolate bars we buy and eat are full of unhealthy sugar. But eating dark chocolate, made from cocoa beans, actually has many health benefits. Said to be one of the best sources of antioxidants, a 100-gram bar of the dark variety contains a good amount of fiber, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, and many other nutrients. It is also said to help improve blood circulation and lower blood pressure. But like any other sweet, remember to consume it in moderation!
