Chocolate is made from plants, which means it contains many of the health benefits of dark vegetables. Research studies have shown that dark chocolate contains a large number of antioxidants (nearly 8 times the number found in strawberries). It tastes extremely good, it stimulated endorphin production which gives a feeling of pleasure and it contains serotonin which acts as an anti depressant. Chocolates also contain theobromine, caffeine and other substances which are stimulants.
Chocolate is a multifaceted food with over 300 compounds and chemicals in each bite. To really enjoy and appreciate chocolate, take the time to taste it. Professional chocolate tasters have developed a system for tasting chocolate that include assessing the appearance, smell, feel and taste of each piece. Dark chocolate has far more antioxidants than milk or white chocolate. These other two chocolates cannot make any health claims. Dark chocolate has 65 percent or higher cocoa content.
For preparing this luscious dessert, melt the chocolate in a saucepan and let it cool at room temperature for few minutes. Whisk the egg yolk and castor sugar until they become pale and fluffy. Pour the melted chocolate into the mixture with double cream and rum. Stir with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. Whish the egg whites in another mixing bowl till soft peaks are formed. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture gradually mixing after each addition.
Divide the mixture equally into the individual custard pots (ramekins). Place them in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 to 3 hours. Top with swirls of whipped cream and serve cold.
