Dark chocolate can be really hard to get into at first. I found it bitter and just not what I was about when it came to sweets. However, I also wasn’t allowing myself anything else so it’s amazing how quickly I got on board with eating it lol. Try dunking a piece into your hot coffee so it warms up and gets a bit melted. What’s your favourite dark chocolate treat?
