Darker the Chocolate the sweeter the……Antioxidants Sillies

Dark Chocolate is amazing for your body, mind and soul. It is high in antioxidants.

Here  a few more benefits ~

  1. Studies show that eating a small amount of dark chocolate a few times a week can help lower your blood pressure. Dark chocolate improves blood flow and may help prevent the formation of blood clots.
  2. Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants. Antioxidants help free your body of free radicals, which cause oxidative damage to cells.  Yay, so what am I say? Eating antioxidant rich foods like dark chocolate helps with anti aging. That makes this also a go B’Tyli Natural Skin Therapies Blog.
  3. Dark Chocolate is high in vitamins and minerals such as copper, potassium, magnesium and iron!  Copper peptides can help with wrinkles. SO EAT CHOCOLATE, WELL DARK CHOCOLATE.

Sea salted Dark Chocolate Bark

ENJOY!  My Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bark recipe

You will need

A bar of 90% Premium Dark Chocolate Bar

1/2 cup of cranberries

1/2 cup of dehydrated coconut

1/2 cup of chopped pecans

1- 2 tbsp of organic honey

pinch of sea salt

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Once the chocolate is melted. Pour it on a cookie sheet layer with some parchment paper. Sprinkle the cranberries, coconut, pecans and the pinch of sea salt.  If you like the salty taste add a little more to cover the whole bark. Being a kidney transplant survivor less salt is a happy thing for my husband’s donate kidney. 🙂

Put in the fridge for about 15 minutes. Once set you can drizzle the organic honey over the whole thing. I like honey so I used all 2 tbsp but one is good.

Bon Appétit!
