Today is "National Chocolate Parfait Day" and I didn't make any because to be blunt, I don't have a special event to serve them at and I think these need to be made and eaten, I don't they last for days and days very well. What do you all think? Are chocolate parfaits a special dessert or an any day sort of treat?
That's just one day in May that we could use to celebrate our Sacred Substance. The entire month is "National Chocolate Custard Month" so I'll have to find some recipe or some product to try for you all. If you have a chocolate custard recipe you'd like me to try, send it my way.
May 5 has two potential chocolate holidays. First is "National Chocolate Custard Day" -- isn't that a bit of overkill with an entire month all ready? Second is Cinco de Mayo and cocoa/chocolate can be a part of traditional Mesoamerican foods. But we celebrated that last year here so I'll look into the custard.
May 11 is "National Eat What You Want Day" which falls on a Wednesday this year. Show of hands. How many will pick chocolate something that day?
May 12 is "National Nutty Fudge Day". I don't normally think of fudge as a spring, summer or fall treat but really a winter candy. Yet I know of a lot of fudge only shows that operate year round.
May 15 is "National Chocolate Chip Day" and that isn't only for cookies so I wonder what else I can think of for this day?
Finally, the last fun food holiday I could find related to chocolate in May is on the 19th which is "National Devil's Food Cake Day".
Sisters and Brothers, tell me what fun food holidays I've missed that should be added to my calendar.
