Chocolate is a treat that can be enjoyed alone or combined with other ingredients. Chocolate may be used to create many fantastic desserts, including cakes, pies, cookies, ice cream, and dessert sauces. Simple chocolate bars are very popular as well. Some chocolate bars are simply made of chocolate, while others contain added ingredients such as caramel, nuts, or marshmallow. Chocolates can also be formed into different shapes to use as unique gifts.

Choices of Unique Chocolates

There are a few different types of chocolate. The three main choices are milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate. Most people tend to prefer the taste of milk chocolate. However, dark chocolate is desirable because it has additional antioxidants and ingredients that are good for overall health. Chocolate, in general, is also a well-known aphrodisiac.

Chocolate makes a great gift for lovers because it can enhance sexual desire. Chocolate contains phenyl ethylamine, which produces an amphetamine-like high and feelings of love. This chemical occurs naturally in the brain and releases dopamine into its pleasure centers during sexual arousal. Therefore, phenyl ethylamine is known to stimulate sexual desire and excitement. Unfortunately, large amounts of chocolate must be ingested before effects are noticed.

Chocolate makes a great gift for anyone because it can improve overall mood. It contains an ingredient called theobromide that promotes alertness and the feeling of well-being. Chocolate also allows for a release of endorphins. This pleasurable sensation is similar to what we know as "runner's high," which is often experienced after running several miles. Another ingredient in chocolate that acts as an anti-depressant is the neurotransmitter serotonin. It's no wonder that chocolate is such a popular and desirable dessert.
