The number one reason why we crave chocolate 🍫 is because cocoa is a rich source of magnesium and magnesium is what makes us feel relaxed. 😎 🤗 🤗
(Think of taking an Epsom Salts bath- super relaxing right?! Epsom salts is Magnesium Sulphate!)
The reason that chocolate looks sooooo good at bedtime is NOT because you suddenly have no willpower!!!
It's *actually* because your body is brilliant and is trying to get the minerals in needs to relax and drift into sleep peacefully. 😴
So make yourself a batch of this delicious, simple, magnesium-rich chocolate bark and enjoy a few pieces whenever the craving strikes.
*note- you won't eat the entire thing in one sitting. Unlike commercial chocolate, this is super rich in the minerals that you're body is actually craving so you'll feel satisfied after a few pieces 🤓 😍 😍
