How to Make Simple Chocolate Desserts


A delicious chocolate dessert is a thing of beauty. Unfortunately, most home cooks shy away from making desserts because they're worried about the results. Luckily, we've found a number of chocolate dessert recipes that are both simple to make and delicious.

In addition to being tasty, chocolate is actually good for you (in moderation). Chocolate starts with the cocoa bean, the seeds of the cocoa tree which are high in antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the body from the damage and aging caused by free radicals, which would otherwise lead to heart disease. Dark chocolate has nearly 8 times the amount of antioxidants found in strawberries. They also help relax blood pressure and dark chocolate has been shown to decrease LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) by up to 10 percent.

Without further ado, here are 3 easy-to-prepare chocolate desserts that'll impress your guests.
