Chocolate receives a lot of bad press because of its high fat and sugar content. Its consumption has been associated with acne, obesity, high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and diabetes.

On the other hand, dark chocolate is loaded with nutrients that can affect your health positively.

Made from the seed of the cocoa tree, chocolate is a source of antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains phytonutrients called flavonoids, which are plant chemicals that act as antioxidants and may play a role in cancer prevention, heart health, and weight loss.

Below is healthy chocolate popcorn recipe that will curb all your chocolate cravings without a hint of guilt.
