That’s right! You heard me. There are some chocolate desserts that some studies have shown that improve your memory.
According to “Nature Neuroscience” an antioxidant found in chocolate could greatly improve memory skills. The best catch? Get this; that in order for the health benefits to kick in, you’d have to eat a “large amount” of dark chocolate.
Right?! Well here are a few of these “healthy” desserts which our friends over at Grub Street helped put together:
Chocolate Pudding, Pretzel Tuile
Where: Bar Bolonat
Don’t miss Einat Admony’s excellent desserts: The milky chocolate one’s delightful, as is the Moroccan-tea gelato with walnut-pistachio baklava.
No meal at Buvette is complete without the restaurant’s famed chocolate mousse, made only with five ingredients: bittersweet chocolate, butter, egg whites, salt, and sugar. (Oh, and an optional dollop of whipped cream.)
Price: Part of a prix fixe starting at two courses for $55
This rich, luxurious dessert combines chocolate sablé, kirsch-chantilly cream, and bing cherries.
Oh yeah…and don’t forget the Warm Chocolate Budino
Where: Charlie Bird
There’s a reason why this dessert hasn’t left Ryan Hardy’s menu since Charlie Bird opened: He mixes chocolate with olive-oil gelato and — brilliantly — caramelized Rice Krispies. That’s tight Caramelized.
Happy Memory Improvement Folks!
