  8. Take it out & beat it in a bowl same as done earlier with dark chocolate mixture. Now Add milk to it (2 tablespoons) & mix it well.

Health benefits of Chocolate you should know-

(For those who think it's Unhealthy)

Health Benefits
Details
Flavonoids
Chocolate is rich in Flavonoids. Flavonoids contain some ingredients which help in smooth flow of blood in your body. Apart from these it also helps a lot to bring the cholesterol level low in your body. In case you smoke cigarette a lot, then your blood contains a lot of free radicals. Flavonoids help to remove these radicals also. This free radical damage has the potential to increase LDL-cholesterol oxidation and plaque formation on the arterial walls. It is found a lot in plants, including Cacao, in its original form. They act to protect the plant from environmental toxins as well as repair damage to it. Overall, a very important thing for your body.
Improves Blood Flow in Body
Another important feature of chocolate is that it removes the blood clotting in your blood which ensures that blood is full with oxygen & easily flowing in body, especially heart because these clotting’s in heart cause heart attacks. Also, it helps a lot to lower your blood pressure & stable it to a normal level. This means that the blood will take longer to clot, which reduces the risk of coronary artery blockages.
Vitamins
Vitamins is something which people think is not in chocolate, but they are wrong. Chocolate has a lot of important nutrients such as potassium, magnesium and vitamins D, E, B 1 and B 2. These vitamins help in stabilizing your body functioning & cures your body from any hurts i.e. it works as an antiseptic.
Other Healthy Benefits
Compounds in chocolate also increase the release of mood-affecting chemicals, including serotonin, endorphin and phenylethylamine, similar to those released during exercise or romance. The phenylethylamine increases the heartbeat and releases feelings of well-being. Feelings of cheerfulness are also brought about by the distribution of serotonin, dopa mine and nor adrenaline.
