A university academic says she believes she has uncovered the first English recipes for iced chocolate desserts.

Dr Kate Loveman, from the University of Leicester, said she found the recipes in manuscripts which belonged to the Earl of Sandwich in 1668.

At the time, the chocolate treats came with a health warning for damaging the stomach, heart and lungs.

*Drool*...oh, excuse me.

How funny that we now know that chocolate is actually good for us!
