June 22, today, is "National Chocolate Éclair Day" here on the fun chocolate calendar we are creating over the years drawing upon many, many printed and online sources. This day honoring a French creation with the addition of our Sacred Substance has an unknown history. If you know anything at all about when this fun food holiday began or who created it, please leave a note with a link in the comments, Sisters and Brothers.
Where do you get your recipes for your chocolate éclairs? Do you put chocolate inside them as well as on the top? Could you add chocolate to the pastry itself to make it even more chocolaty or would that upset the creation of the fine product? How long will a homemade éclair last in your house? What type of chocolate -- white, milk, dark -- works best for these?
If you give me the information then next year I can find the courage to try to make my own and share the success or failure with you all.
Sisters and Brothers, may you, too, take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
