We get an extra day this year, today, Leap Day, so I tried to be clever with my title for this look ahead post for March 2012.
Easter is early this year but it still isn't until April so we have all of March ahead of us to celebrate with chocolate. At this point we have three specific features lined up for you all from Old Time Candy, Taraluna, and Lindt R.S.V.P. and some filler features if no one else sends us more Easter specific products. If you know a chocolatier who does Easter or Passover or even Spring Equinox chocolates send them our way please.
What other dates could you celebrate with chocolate? How about these?
March 6 = National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day -- anyone have a recipe? I'd give it a try if you all sent me a recipe.
March 8 = National Peanut Cluster Day -- these are easy to make, I should try to make some, yes?
2nd Week of March = Chocolate Chip Cookie Week --I wonder how many blogs will have recipes that day?
March 14 = National Pi Day (often marked by eating circular foods like pie or pizza so you could make it chocolate too, why not, math geeks eat chocolate)
March 18 = National Oatmeal Cookie Day -- doesn't need chocolate but wouldn't it be better if you added some?
March 19 = National Chocolate Caramel Day -- hhhmmm.... I've never made chocolate caramel, have you?
3rd Week of March = American Chocolate Week -- so easy to celebrate here in the States but what about in other countries? Sisters and Brothers, if you live elsewhere, where can you find American chocolate where you live?
March 24 = National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day -- I think we'll be covering these in a featured review earlier in the month if our Chocolate Fruit Acolyte gets a review to me
March 25 = International Waffle Day -- again, it doesn't have to be chocolate but it could be
March 26 = National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day -- but do we need more chocolate holidays in March? We seem a bit busy to me.
March 28 = National Black Forrest Cake Day -- is chocolate plus a lot more
There you go, Sisters and Brothers, start planning your March chocolate today and let me know what those plans are.
Also please leave a comment on our post about the future of The Chocolate Cult. We really, really need your feedback even if it is only to say "I like it as it is."
