Kendall Jenner, Keeping up with the Kardashins superstar tweeted “If only I liked Chocolate” here is the photograph:

“aaah looks so pretty” she says and indeed it does! Some lovely chocolate for those of us who love chocolate. I think it’s a beautiful chocolate layout. Now, we love chocolate so we are going to be talking about chocolate tea and i’m going to show you how to make some but before I do that the reason why Kendall Jenner tweeted that photograph was because she was helping to launch a new brassiere that’s just opened in new york city called Sugar factory, so if you are in new york, head on down and let me know how it goes, leave a comment in the comment box below ok?

So moving on, coming back to lovely London, I’m going to show you how to make some chocolate tea…

We’re at the cooker, I have some La Signorina Chocolate, this is dark chocolate you can use your favourite dark chocolate bar. We’re using “our favourite” which is the one that we make her. So we are just going to put a little bit of that and a little bit of milk, we’re going to melt this down. It’s okay, I know that our chocolate bar has hints of white chocolate in there, that’s absolutely fine it’s all chocolate, we’re going to mix this, melt this slowly, make sure you melt this on a low setting, it will start to melt quite quickly, you don’t really need a lot of milk for this but it’s entirely up to you. So once that’s melted, I like to add our tea that we have brewed, regular tea is fine. I’m just going to pour that in, whoops! sorry for the mess, i’m just waaay too excited to have some chocolate tea. Another tea that would be really good for this would be Early Grey Tea, it’s got a distinctive flavour of bergamot and it adds a slightly citrus tang to it so if you like a citrusy type of chocolate tea then I would recommend using Earl Grey Tea. If not, then regular breakfast tea is fine.

So we have the lovely Chocolate Tea over here, you can add a bit of extra sugar, i’m going to have mine plain. It’s creamy and soothing. There is nothing like a cup of tea. Until next time in the next video, enjoy your chocolate tea, make sure you have some strawberries with it, it’s an amazing combination. I’ll see you next time, make sure you hit the subscribe button, see you soon! Ciao!

Romantics Anonymous

Romantics Anonymous

Romantics Anonymous (Les émotifs anonymes):

What happens when a man and a woman share a common passion? They fall in love. And this is what happens to Jean-René, the boss of a small chocolate factory, and Angélique, a gifted chocolate maker he has just hired. What occurs when a highly emotional man meets a highly emotional woman? They fall in love, and this is what occurs to Jean-René and Angélique who share the same handicap. But being pathologically timid does not make things easy for them. So whether they will manage to get together, join their solitudes and live happily ever after is a guessing matter. Written by Guy Bellinger

Released: December 2, 2011 Runtime: 80 mins Genres: Comedy/ Romance Countries: UK Director: Jean-Pierre Améris

Why does Chocolate make you feel sooooooo good?

Benefits of Chocolate Shakespare has been quoted saying “If chocolate be the food of love, eat on”. Well he didn’t really say that but it sounds quite impressive! However, Montezuma shared chocolate with his wives and maidens. Madame du Barry fed it to her lovers and Casanova seduced women with a cup of cocoa…

Clearly there must be something magical about this thing we call chocolate. Well, here are a list of the substances in chocolate that make you feel good:

  • Phenethylamime: the same substance found in the brain when you are in love. Yes, chocolate is an aphrodisiac!
  • Anandamine: creates a mild form of euphoria
  • Methylxanthines: are stimulants which don’t give you the same coffee jolt but work slowly to up your energy level. Maybe it’s time to substitute that morning coffee for dark chocolate?

These are the substances that are also good for you:

  • Polyphenols: these are the same anti-oxidants found in red wine and green tea. Also, Dark chocolate is higher in anti-oxidants than the acai berry!
  • Magnesium: aids muscle relaxation, energy function and a proper nerve function
  • Copper: prevents anemia and an effective hemoglobin
  • Cocoa butter: stays liquid at body temperature and so does not block your arteries like regular fats and oils do.
