TYLER (KYTX) - If you want to spoil your sweetheart this Valentine's Day, and keep his or her health in mind, researchers have a sweet prescription for you.  They say dark chocolate is packed with some heart healthy benefits and can even protect you from some types of cancer.

Cindy Caid from Tyler is featured in CBS 19's "Sweet Prescription" special report and loves to eat dark chocolate and cook with it.  She found a recipe to share with you this Valentine's Day. Just remember, researchers and dietitians say moderation is key when eating dark chocolate.
