Yes, Chocolate is Good for You!

(okay, okay in moderation that is!)

So here’s the deal about chocolate – first of all, it’s actually been reported to boost your immune system. Yep, that little cacao bean (the source from which chocolate is derived) is full of antioxidants which play a key role in supporting a healthy system.

An important cooking note here to be mindful of: the key to a firmly set but fudgy texture is using bittersweet chocolate with minimum 60% cacao. Lower percentages will result in fudge with a scoop-able ganache-like texture instead of bars.
