We’re all aware of the temptation of chocolate, but this ingredient takes (or rather, makes) the cake for complex seduction. Containing sedative and stimulating qualities, chocolate lowers inhibitions and helps relaxation while also increasing energy and desire for physical contact — in other words, it’s the perf flame-fueler. And with this light version of a calorie-laden classic, you won’t have to worry about overloading on its sleep-inducing side!
