Before learning the dessert recipes, here are few benefits of consuming hazelnut and cocoa spread: 
  1. Fiber And Heart: 2 tablespoons of Hazelnut and Cocoa spread contains a gram of fiber. Women especially need to consume about 25 grams of fiber every day and men require 38 grams - of which 4% could be consumed from consuming hazelnut and cocoa spread. Having fiber helps lower one’s levels of cholesterol - maintaining healthy cholesterol levels reduces the chances of developing any form of heart problems. 
  2. Iron & Calcium: Just like fiber, two tablespoons of Hazelnut and cocoa spread also contains 4% of calcium and iron required by the body per day. Calcium regulates one's blood pressure and keeps the bone health high. It considerably reduces the risk of stroke.
