Healthy dark chocolate is an ingredient that can have several health benefits. There are however some facts you want to know beforehand when it comes to using the right dark chocolate for your recipe for fudge candy and dessert recipe ideas. Raw cacao is an ingredient that is quite bitter on its own, it's not sweet, because of the nearly 400 polyphenols that are present in it. So when you hear about all the health benefits of chocolate, this would be the chocolate that people are talking about. When selecting chocolate to use in dessert recipes, you want to look for the higher cacao content and lower sugar content. In general, the darker the chocolate, the higher the cacao content will be. But since cacao on its own is on the bitter side, the higher the percentage of cacao, the more bitter the chocolate will be. It's all those polyphenols that are responsible for many of chocolate's health benefits that we so love, so to help counteract the bitterness of the cacao you will find that most chocolate is sweetened. For health benefits, you want to choose a dark chocolate that has a cacao percentage of about 70 percent or higher.
