From cacao seeds to a sweet and gooey flavour, chocolate can be a strange addiction.

Although consuming a huge amount is unhealthy, eating the right proportion of chocolate can provide a number of benefits: It can improve your memory, blood circulation and, most importantly, it plays a role in making you a happier human.

Eating a chocolate bar casually can be convenient and fast. However, there are other ways of eating chocolate “indirectly” — by including them in your favourite desserts to enjoy with loved ones.

Thinking about Italians, “gelato” might be quite familiar to you. This dessert is super simple to make. All you need to have are two pints of Fior di Latte, a type of gelato without the egg yolks, and a cup of chocolate spread. If you can’t find the gelato, vanilla ice cream is a great substitution. To assemble this delicious treat you will need to scoop gelato in a chilled bowl, add some spreads, another scoop of gelato and any desired toppings!

To make this dessert, only a microwave is required and your cute microwave-safe little mug — no oven necessary!  All you need to do are stir together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a mug.

Mix the cream, oil, and 3 tablespoons of water until smooth.

Make a well in the middle with a spoon, and pour half of the caramel sauce into the well.

Microwave it for 60 seconds on high power and carefully take it out. If you want, add ice cream, peanuts, and the rest of the caramel sauce on top. Then, it is ready to serve immediately! Bon Appétit!

Another effortless recipe that will make your life easier: easy peasy fudge popsicles. A popsicle mould and a stick are the most important things you’ll need to make this.

To make this recipe, put coconut milk, condensed milk, cocoa powder, and a little salt in a blender and blend until smooth. Then, pour the blended mixture into the ice-pop moulds. Freeze it for an hour so you can put the stick in, and then freeze it again for about 4 hours, or until it is firm. The last step is to dip the moulds into cold water and carefully remove your popsicle from the mould. Enjoy!

Some Fun Facts About Chocolate

Did you know that “Latin America and Asia” produce the majority of the world’s chocolate?

However, in the cocoa industry, child labour, slavery, and deforestation are common problems because cocoa can only be grown in a small area and in countries that are less economically developed.

To avoid fueling this raging fire, the solution is to support sustainable chocolate from local farmers where all of the profits go directly to them and their product.

Top Tips To Choose A Sustainable Chocolate

Avoid:
