Happy Valentine's Day!! In the true spirit of a day devoted to loving our loved ones and well... loving our chocolate, I have a couple of things for you:
First, dark chocolate is a good thing! A little is actually good for us. I'm talking the very dark chocolate (even better if sweetened more naturally than with refined sugars). Dark chocolate contains antioxidants, like those found in blueberries and green tea. Go ahead and print off my chocolate article to learn more about the health benefits of dark chocolate (and an interesting note about not consuming dairy with dark chocolate), as well as chocolate terminology and cooking info.
Second, I normally make chocolate bark for Christmas. But, I thought I'd share my Sublime Chocolate Bark recipe from Vive le Vegan! for those of you that want to make a special last-minute treat for your sweet!
Now everyone, go tell someone you love that you love them, and share some fine dark chocolate!
