Dozy Chocolate

Having trouble sleeping? I think I may have a solution for you. A couple of years back I was having difficulty sleeping, getting up at 7am 5 days a week for work with just 3 or 4 hours of sleep wasn't cutting it for me (although once L came along that seemed like a luxury!) so I was given the recipe below to try to see if it would be of any help and of course the fact that it is a natural remedy recipe makes it even better. 

Ingredients:

100grams 70% cocoa dark chocolate
50 drops of Valerium Tincture
6 drops of Lavendar
1 tbsp of ground flax seed


Method:

  • Melt chocolate in a bowl over a pan of boiling water. 
  • When the chocolate has melted add the rest of the ingredients and stir. 
  • Place the mixture in a mould or line a container with greaseproof paper and allow for the mixture to set.
As you can see in the picture below we just broke it up into pieces after it was set.



I can say that these little bites most definitely worked! Although at first they can be a bit hard to swallow, I just washed it down with a swig of hot chocolate. I did find they were of a less intense taste if eaten straight out of the fridge. I no longer had my head on the pillow and I was drifting off into a nice calm sleep.

  1. Oh this looks amazing. I am struggling to sleep in the evenings and as a result am really tired in the morning, I might have to give this a go.

    1. Hopefully it can help you too :) I ate just as I was getting into bed and I wasn't long falling asleep!
