When choosing the dark chocolate for this recipe, always go for a higher content of cocoa because of the higher the cocoa, the less processing it goes. The ideal percentage of dark chocolate is at least 70 percent or more. Dark chocolate is a potent source of antioxidants and improves cardiovascular health. It also contains a good amount of fiber and iron as well. When you break the dark chocolate, it has to make a 'snap' sound which ensures that the chocolate is still fresh. Try replacing more dark chocolate in your diet in the place of regular chocolate to achieve the maximum health benefits.
