Chocolate for May 2012

Sisters and Brothers, a nice long list of holidays for May that we can celebrate with chocolate.

May = National Chocolate Custard Month; National Mental Health Month -- chocolate custard, huh?  I wonder if I've ever had it?

May 1 = National Chocolate Parfait Day

May 2 = National Truffle Day

May 5 = National Chocolate Custard Day; Cinco de Mayo -- hey, mole is made with cocoa

May 11 = National Eat What You Want Day -- why would you not choose something with chocolate?

May 12 = National Nutty Fudge Day

May 14 = World Fair Trade Day -- very important to the issue of cocoa plantations

May 15 = National Chocolate Chip Day; also the birthday of Coenraad Johannes whom I'll do a post about so you can learn a bit about why he is important to chocolate lovers

May 19 = National Devil’s Food Cake Day

May 24, 1836 = birthday of Joseph Rowntree whom I'll also tell you a bit about later this month

I hope this helps you all plan your month!

Thanks for these dates :D
So useful! I plan to most certainly celebrate eat-what-you-want day and of course chocolate chip day :)

Cheers

Great!

I'm going to try and at least do the two historical dates for you all and others if I can manage with my health currently as it is.

Thanks for reading and commenting, MyFudo. I'm surprised I'm not seeing a lot of truffle recipes today...
