Yummy! Now they just need to cover it with chocolate.

Hey...chocolate covered bacon...could be something big! One of my favorite snacks is chocolate dipped ridged potato chips...the salt and chocolate really work well together.

How about this article at WebMD:

"A Dark Chocolate a Day Keeps the Doctor Away"

Quote:
Here's news that's hard not to like. Eating a small, 1.6-ounce bar of dark chocolate every day is good for you. Very good for you, find Mary Engler, PhD, RN, of the University of California, San Francisco, and colleagues.

Now here is a medical experiment you would love to volunteer for. Engler's team divided 21 healthy adults into two groups. One group got a Dove Dark Chocolate bar every day for two weeks. Like other dark chocolate bars with high-cocoa content, this one is loaded with something called epicatechin. Epicatechin is a particularly active member of a group of compounds called plant flavoniods. Flavoniods keep cholesterol from gathering in blood vessels, reduce the risk of blood clots, and slow down the immune responses that lead to clogged arteries.

The second group that didn't get Dove bars wasn't totally left out. They, too, got dark chocolate bars. But their treats had the flavoniods taken out.

All subjects underwent high-tech evaluation of how well the blood vessels dilate and relax -- an indictor of healthy blood vessel function. Blood vessel stiffness indicates diseased vessels and possible atherosclerosis. Those who got the full-flavonoid chocolate did significantly better. Why? Blood tests showed that high levels of epicatechin were coursing through their arteries.
I love scientific data like this! Life is GREAT!!!

LOL!! And what rigorous research - - they had the experimental subjects consume a little chocolate daily for two whole weeks before concluding the study?

Oh well. Thanks anyway! A few weeks ago I did buy a dark Belgian chocolate bar that said it had no sugar added and it was SO GOOD... tasted just like regular dark Belgian chocolate.

After eating it I checked the label for calories and it wasn't pretty. Might be worth it to do that again pretty soon, though.

Ten bucks!

All you need is a bag of ruffles, a nice dark chocolate candy bar, a bowl, a piece of wax paper and a microwave!!!
