Factoid
Throughout history, chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac. Montezuma is believed to have consumed 50 cups of chocolate a day to boost his virility. The chemical in chocolate that affects desire is phenyl ethylamine, which triggers the pleasure centers in the brain. Studies indicate that this chemical is very effective in increasing women's libido, more so than for men. The darker, the better: A recent study shows that dark chocolate, but not milk chocolate, contains a potent antioxidant, capable of destroying free radicals which are harmful to our bodies. Milk appears to hinder the body's ability to absorb the antioxidants, so don't have a glass of milk with your dark chocolate. The same study also demonstrated that dark chocolate lowers blood pressure. (source: WebMD - Dirk Taubert, MD, PhD, and colleagues at the University of Cologne, Germany. Their report appears in the Aug. 27 issue of The Journal of the American Medical Association.)



Ingredients
• 1/2 lb of milk chocolate (chopped)

• 3/4 cup of heavy cream

• 1/2 tablespoon of unsalted butter

• 1/2 cup of Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder

• Sweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Equipment
• Heat-proof bowl

• A pot for the bowl to rest on top of. (The bowl should sit on top of the pot, resting just above the simmering water)

• Cookie sheet

• Parchment paper

• Baking dish

• Plastic wrap


Don't forget your measuring cups and spoons!

Preparation (Do it!)
1) In a heat proof bowl, combine the chocolate, cream and butter. Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water (make sure the bowl does not touch the water) and stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Pour into a bowl or baking dish, cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm.

2) Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop out about a tablespoon of the chocolate mixture and roll between your palms to make a ball. Roll the ball in the cocoa powder until coated. Transfer your ball to a cookie sheet and repeat.

3) Store your balls in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

Accoutrements:

Port. Don't pair milk or dark chocolate with sparkling wine or champagne, because the acidity reacts with the chocolate and causes a tart taste.

If your date likes coconut, you can sprinkle some sweetened coconut flakes on top. Blueberries and raspberries look nice as a colorful garnish on the plate, and go well with chocolate.
