Who doesn’t love chocolate? Milk, dark, white — it’s all delicious, and it all makes us happy. Chocolate is the ultimate comfort food.
Melt that delectable chocolate into a sugary cupcake and we’re in heaven. Here are five reasons why chocolate cupcakes are the best kind of cupcakes:
1. Chocolate is good for your health. Seriously, chocolate has been proven to improve your heart health, your joint health, even your mental health. Dark chocolate is loaded with antioxidants, the stuff that fights disease. These super fighters work to keep your entire body healthy and disease free. Some studies have even shown that consuming dark chocolate can improve blood flow that can help prevent heart disease. And we’re not even done yet! Chocolate also helps your brain release calming endorphins that help reduce anxiety and lower stress. And who doesn’t want to be stress-free?
2. It’s good for your skin. A German study showed that people who ate chocolate had improved skin quality from those who didn’t eat chocolate. And even better news, the old wives’ tale about eating chocolate giving you breakouts? Just that, a tale. Researchers have found absolutely no correlation between breakouts and chocolate consumption.
3. Chocolate can strengthen your brain. Flavanols, or beneficial nutrients, can be found in chocolate. These nutrients can help fight memory loss. Dark chocolate also possesses an anti-inflammatory quality.
4. Chocolate creates smiles. Just popping a mouthwatering piece of chocolate in your mouth can result in a grin. A Finnish study found that mothers who ate chocolate while pregnant had babies who smiled more than non-chocolate eating mommies. When’s the last time you ate something chocolate and didn’t smile?
5. Chocolate goes with EVERYTHING! You can mix chocolate with spicy peppers, salty chips, and even cheese and create strange, but yummy combos. You can stick to traditional combos, like dipping a piece of fruit in chocolate, or you can think outside the box and stumble onto something that will rock your world. Like the genius who discovered covering already-delicious bacon with chocolate who created a worldwide trend.
