NOTE: July 23, 2021. This blog post was written in 2015. Dove Chocolate Discoveries has since closed down.

Several studies that have shown the health benefits of eating cocoa & chocolate on a daily basis (in moderation of course). Recently, the Huffington Post even reported about a study showing that the antioxidants and flavanol in cocoa could help improve cognitive impairments in older adults or those who have memory problems.

I am not ashamed to admit that I have a sweet tooth and a fairly big one at that. Dark chocolate is my favorite.  While the health benefits may be debatable, I think one can indulge in sweets from time to time, in moderation and still live a healthy lifestyle.

I have been enjoying  Mars® chocolate for many years.  Mars® has a newer direct selling / home party plan business called Dove Chocolate Discoveries™.  Now you can enjoy premium chocolate products, mixes, beverages and more in the comfort of your home by ordering direct or hosting a party with friends and family and earning the products for free.  You can even begin your own Dove Chocolate Discoveries business and become a Chocolatier, earning an income on your own schedule by sharing delicious chocolate recipes and party gatherings with others.

Dove Chocolate Discoveries™ has many ready to eat holiday treats, gourmet baking mixes, health & wellness products, drink mixes, rubs, sauces and vinaigrettes.   They also have some pre-made gift sets that would make wonderful presents for family, friends, co-workers and neighbors. A few of my favorite Dove Chocolate items that should on everyone’s shopping list includes: Saigon Cinnamon Rolls, Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix and Truffle Fudge Brownie Mix. All of the mixes are very easy to make and only require 2-3 other ingredients. The pictures do not do their products justice. They are absolutely delicious!

The Holiday Party Favorites Set and The Chocolate Lover’s Set are on special right now and both would be perfect for all your upcoming parties! It would make a great hostess gift for someone or you could split either set up into 4 or 5 different gifts for 4 or 5 people!  The Holiday Party Favorites Set includes:  Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Mix, Spiced White Sipping Chocolate, White Chocolate Pear-flavored Cider, White Chocolate Mint Martini Mix (you can make a non-alcoholic version), Milk Chocolate-Covered Cashew and Dark Chocolate-Covered Almonds.  The Chocolate Lover’s Set includes: Truffle Fudge Brownie Mix, Milk Chocolate-Covered Cinnamon-Dusted Almonds, Chocolate Martini Mix and the Chocolate Mousse Starter Kit.

You can also find a lot of delicious recipes for the products on their website.  I will be posting a couple recipes later this week/next week here on my blog as well, so be sure to check back here for those too.
