A real treat: chocolate waffles and chocolate ice cream

chocolate-waffles-1

Chocolate has to be the ultimate indulgence. I might have gone a little overboard with this one, but my husband – the world’s greatest chocoholic – didn’t seem to mind.

The chocolate ice cream is really dreamy, no fake flavourants or colourants. This is the real deal: chocolate and cream. You might want to put a lock on your fridge for this one!

Reasons why you should eat chocolate:

1. Chocolate reduces blood pressure.

2. Chocolate fights off chronic fatigue.

3. Chocolate contains iron.

4. Chocolate impedes cell deterioration and cancer.

5. Chocolate improves blood circulation to the brain.
