Cho - co - love !

Arranging "make-some-chocolate-for-me" evenings is one of our traditions that I die for.

It's really cute when everyone comes in the kitchen to give a helping hand for making yummy chocolate.
It's always such a fun to get chocolaty from head to toe, make fun of everything enjoy the sweet smell of the melting chocolate and just sit there and wait for your turn to try a spoon or two of that heavenly treat.

This chocolate night was perfect, cause people who I love gathered to make and try chocolate with us.I love you all guys, but what I love more than anything is CHOCOLATE, of course, hahaha...

Frankly, I love chocolate in all it's forms -give me a bar of chocolate, let me open up the pocket of Hershey's   or get a soft biscuit out of the chocolate fountain and I become one of the kindest and sweetest girl ever :D


10. Chocolate makes you happy:
Chocolate contains tryptophan, a chemical in the brain that is used to produce the neurotransmitter, serotonin. High levels of serotonin stimulate the secretion of endorphins, and produce feelings of elation. Serotonin is found in the antidepressant Prozac, and the designer drug “ecstasy” produces its effects by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. So… antidepressants, illegal drugs, or a Hershey's Bar You pick.
9. Chocolate may help people live longer:
 In a Harvard University study conducted in 1999, researchers tracked 8,000 men and found those who ate chocolate lived almost a year longer than those who didn’t. Although scientists don’t know why the men lived longer, they speculate it has to do with the antioxidants found in chocolate.  I speculate that it’s because these same men had enough chocolate around their house that they had no shortage of woman willing to come around and cook them healthy meals and clean their bathroom once in a while.  But that’s just a theory.
8. Chocolate is really good for you:
Dark chocolate contains chemicals that lower the risk of cancer and heart disease. Flavanoids and antioxidants in dark chocolate have been shown to make a difference in cardiovascular health.  Scientists now recommend that you have a chocolate cookie or biscuit so your body gets more of those life-lengthening chemicals.  Skip those cookies & milk since some studies show that milk cancels out the healthful effects of eating chocolate by preventing those helpful chemicals from being fully absorbed in the body.  Hey – nobody said the science of chocolate was going to be simple!
7. Chocolate is a cardiac stimulant of heart:
Not that we actually care, but various beneficial substances are contained in chocolate. For example, some antioxidants and flavonoids can help us reduce the chances of getting cancer and cardiovascular disease. The substances contained in cocoa can also help us prevent the formation of heart disease. Therefore, if we feel tired, we can eat chocolate to support our heart.
6. Chocolate has just the right chemistry:

According to a study by the University of Michigan, chocolate contains chemicals called opioids.  Opioids are also found in opium which can dull pain and give you a feeling of well-being.  Therefore, people who eat chocolate produce natural opiates in their brains that can soothe their nerves and make them feel good.
5. Chocolate makes us feel more alive:
The caffeine content alone of dark chocolate can increase pulse, heart rate and alertness; chocolate also contains phenylethylamine, a chemical that has effects much like amphetamines. It’s a feeling of alertness, not unlike the feeling you get in the early stages of romance—very different from a slap-in-the-face coffee buzz.
4. Chocolate equals love:
Speaking of love, the association might not be completely physiological. Women crave chocolate more often than men do. Women are also habitually given chocolate as birthday and Valentine's day presents. In our culture, chocolate is thought of as a romantic gift. It’s outside the realm of mundane, day-to-day food, reserved for special occasions–and, for women especially, it’s associated with love and romance. That could be another reason why women particularly love chocolate: deep down, it makes them feel loved, cared for, and pampered.
3. Being Addicted to Chocolate won’t get you arrested:
Hell, it’s a drug alright, but you can get away with it. Nobody is going to say anything to you if you eat 2 whole bars of  chocolates by yourself and get a sugar rush (er, we’re not counting your dietician or trainer, if you have one). You could bask your joys in bites of chocolate or drown your sorrows in that delectable cocoa taste, and can have as much as you want. Either way, you won’t get into trouble with the law.

2. Chocolate melts at 97°F.:
That’s right, just below body temperature.  So it actually does melt in your mouth.  

1. I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove CHOCOLATE !!!!!!

While you love and eat your choco I'll get mine ;)
Get rid of the facilities.
