Does anyone know if adding white "chocolate" wafers to 70 percent dark chocolate (the "good" choc)

in an attempt to make it sweeter and lighter (I don't like the bitter taste of really dark chocolate) would still retain the same healthy properties?
Other than adding fat that doesn't have any benefits like the dark choc, it doesn't subtract any of the antioxidant benefits, does it?
I never quite really understood if "less than 70 percent chocolate" was still good for you, just not as good as 70+ because it added "empty" fat calories.
I'd like to melt some to use, but don't want full-strength dark chocolate and can't imagine that it wouldn't still be good for you - I mean, you're eating it, still, you'd just have to eat more to get the same amount of AO. But that's not a problem! heheh
How did the fool *get* his money?!

- Why don't you use a slightly sweeter chocolate, such as 55 - 60 per cent? Still is a good [LINK] - Meryl - 11:20am on 02/10/10
- Thanks for the info, but must be at least 70 to get the benefits... - DawnNYS - 2:16pm on 02/10/10
- That's not correct - it's 55-60 and up. Let me know how it turns out if you add the white. - Meryl - 2:33pm on 02/10/10
- You are still getting the benefits but less by volume. Just think of it - Luisa_Calif - 7:29pm on 02/10/10
