Sharethis: Cocoa May be Beneficial for Migraines , Headache & Migraine

What marvelous news for Migraineurs!

Some years ago I discovered that neither chocolate nor cocoa were Migraine triggers for me; however, craving chocolate was invariably a signal of impending Migraine attack. Whether I indulged my craving and ate any chocolate or not, it had no effect on the timing, frequency, or intensity of the attack.

Glad to see good news on the chocolate front.

Here's a very nice chocolate sauce that does have plenty of cocoa solids.

Rich Chocolate Sauce

2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
6 tbs water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
dash salt (important for flavor)
1/4 tsp vanilla
4 tbs butter

Heat chocolate and water over low heat, or microwave on high for 30-60 seconds at a time, whisking until smooth.

Add sugar and salt. Continue heating and whisking until sugar is dissolved and sauce is slightly thickened.

Stir in vanilla and butter. Serve any way you like including in a dish by itself. Makes 1 cup.
