Chocolate makes happy and cocoa is full of antioxidants. Cocoa itself contains hardly any sugar (just 1 %) and about 12% protein. The happiness ingredient is the protein tryptophan which is used by our body to produce the happiness hormone serotonin.To keep it healthy we use soft dried apricots for sweetness. This is a wonderful gift for yourself or a loved one.
