March's Chocolate Calendar 2013

Sisters and Brother, did I get a calendar out for February this year?  I may not have given my mother's death and if that is the case I apologize.  Fun food holidays and other holidays that can use chocolate do not change much so I guess you could have looked back to 2012 if you wanted to know.  But here are the dates this year for March's Chocolate Dates.


1st Thursday in March = World Book Day -- Want to find a good book to read? Look through our book reviews here on this site.

March 6 = National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day -- cause cheesecake can indeed be even more decadent

March 8 = National Peanut Cluster Day -- what else would you make a cluster with if not chocolate?

March 14 = National Pi Day which is often treated as a pie day -- we do this, we only eat circular things on this day, more challenging than you might think

2nd week of March = Chocolate Chip Cookie Week -- an entire week!  How many different recipes for chocolate chip cookies are there?

March 18 = National Oatmeal Cookie Day -- hey, add some darker cocoa and it isn't unhealthy

March 19 = National Chocolate Caramel Day -- check out the Easter feature about Williams-Sonoma for bunny shaped treats that fit this category

3rd week of March = American Chocolate Week -- not so important if you live in America but if you live elsewhere try to find some and you might surprised at how different or how similar it is to what you normally have

March 24 = National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day -- yeah... still not thrill even with chocolate but our Fruit Acolyte might be thrilled

March 25 = International Waffle Day; Pecan Day (not national) -- pecans, waffles, and chocolate now there is a good idea

March 26 = National Make Up Your Own Holiday Day -- So what will it be this year?  Give us some ideas in the comments!

March 28 = National Black Forrest Cake Day -- Does anyone out there make this cake?

March 31 = Easter in the Western Christianity -- seems really early this year and the Eastern traditions place their celebration of this holiday much later in April
