To start us off, here is our first polls. This is based on the fun food holidays and also whether or not I've already shared a recipe or tried a recipe for the item in the past on The Chocolate Cult.
Update: Sadly there was a tie between Chocolate Popcorn and Chocolate Croissant and even though I posted again asking folks to break the tie, no one voted for one of these. Since we do not charge fees of any type on The Chocolate Cult nor sell anything, I really can't afford to try more than one recipe.
If the polls are a stupid idea, please tell me in a comment and I won't put them in future calendar posts.
January 2 = Feast Day of St. Macarius the Younger, 4th century patron of confectioners
January 3 = National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day
January 5 = National Whipped Cream Day -- it is actually pretty easy to make chocolate whipped cream.
January 6 = National Shortbread Day
January 8 = National English Toffee Day
January 10 = Bittersweet Chocolate Day; National Cream Cheese Brownie Day
January 19 = National Popcorn Day
January 21 = National Granola (bar) Day -- I already have a post and a recipe planned for this day, this is why it was not on the poll above.
January 23 = National Pie Day
January 27 = National Chocolate Cake Day
January 30 = National Croissant Day
January 31 = National Hot Chocolate Day (apparently also in December?)
