National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

National Chocolate Covered Anything Day

When : Always December 16

Chocolaholics rejoice! Today is National Chocolate Covered Anything Day.

Its a great day to indulge, binge, "pig out", and otherwise consume to excess, your favorite food....chocolate. We believe the timing of this day, during the holiday season, couldn't be better.

Today, we get to enjoy our beloved chocolate by covering something...just about anything... in a generous amount of chocolate. Pour, spread, or drizzle chocolate over cakes, cupcakes, pies, pancakes or waffles, nuts, raisins, even ants (yes, some people actually eat chocolate covered ants!). We will let you decide what is too extreme, and how much is too much, if any.

As chocoloaholics, we shouldn't need any added incentive to enjoy our chocolate. In the giving spirit of the holiday season, make sure to give or share some of your favorite chocolate covered treats today.

Happy National Chocolate Covered Anything Day!!!!

Origin of National Chocolate Covered Anything Day:
Our extensive search failed to discover any factual content on this very special day. It's most likely that a confectioner, or a candy company created this sweet day. Aren't you glad they did!?

There was some reference to this as a "National Day". Someone must have decided that all food related holidays should be called "National" days. However, we found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.

  I enjoyed chocolate covered coffee beans way back when. Got out of that habit and don't normally care for much chocolate these days. Pastries are another story...

    I have three different bags of chocolates in my house. I will celebrate with one from each or maybe I won't. Depends on how my day goes.

    Dark chocolate is my absolute fav, but I don't say no to any other (unless it is liberally sprinkled with peppers, --- but anything else is fair fame!)

    I saw a place that makes chocolate covered bacon on the food network. A thin slice of bacon is around 25 calories and one square of Lindt 90% cocoa is 60 calories. Would that make it a treat worth indulging for????
