Honey Chocolates to Die For, or Home-made Sweets

Valentine’s Day is round the corner. I have prepared a healthy version of chocolates for this romantic holiday that will work great as a gift for your other half 🙂

Since it’s a recipe for chocolates, there must be some cocoa in it. Cocoa has a lot of antioxidants, it is also a source of magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, potassium, B vitamins and fiber. Cocoa is also rich in tryptophan, which is transformed into one of the major neurotransmitters in our body – serotonin (often called the hormone of happiness). At the same time, thanks to the content of compounds such as theobromine and caffeine, cocoa has a stimulating effect, improving the mood. The content of phenylethylamine in cocoa raises the level of dopamine in the body, which translates into improved concentration, alertness and well-being.

Such Valentine’s treat is sure to make your partners happy 🙂

 

Preparation:

I combined the oil, cocoa, and butter in a pot and cooked for a while, then stirred in the spices. When the mixture cooled down, I added the honey and transferred the chocolate into heart-shaped moulds. I refrigerated them overnight.
