Dark Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Dark Chocolate Cookies
Not all chocolate is created equal. Dark chocolate contains a lot more cocoa than other forms of chocolate. And standard chocolate manufacturing destroys up to half of the flavoniods. But chocolate companies have now learned to make dark chocolate that keeps up to 95% of its flavoniods.
There have been many studies linking cocoa and dark chocolate with health benefits. The darker chocolate with the most concentrated cocoa will of course be the most beneficial for your health.
