June 2015 Fun Food Holidays with Chocolate

You might think that in the summer the love for chocolate would decline as the temperatures go up in the Northern Hemisphere. Don't forget that many of your sister and brother readers are in the Southern Hemisphere, where the temps are dropping. Regardless of where you live, here are some fun food holidays that you could celebrate with Chocolate. If you know of any others, let us know in a comment, please. If you have an idea of how to celebrate a particular date on this list, let us know that in a comment, too.

June = National Dairy Month

1st Friday June = National Donut Day -- In 2015 that will fall on June 5th.

June 2 = National Rocky Road Day -- I think this applies mostly to ice cream but if you know if a non-ice cream rocky road recipe, let me know about it please.

June 7 = National Chocolate Ice Cream Day -- Luckily this is a Sunday this year so you could really celebrate if you have that day off of work or school.

June 11 = National German Chocolate Cake Day; birthday (1796) of Francois-Louis Cailler, first Swiss chocolatier -- Could you celebrate both of these at the same time? How?

June 12 = National Peanut Butter Cookie Day -- Yeah, yeah, not innately chocolate but you could dip them in chocolate or add chocolate chips, right?

June 14 = International Steampunk Day in honor of the birthday of H.G. Wells -- We do have a special review scheduled for this day!

June 15, 1790 = birthday of CHARLES-AMEDEE KOHLER, Swiss confectioner -- Second Swiss related fun food holiday this month. Who is getting Swiss chocolate to celebrate?

June 16 = National Fudge Day -- So many types of fudge are chocolate, aren't they?

June 22 = National Chocolate Éclair Day -- The chocolate here is usually just a frosting or coating but again I think we could work more chocolate into it if we just try a bit.

June 24 = National Pralines Day -- The word praline means different things depending on where you live. What does it mean where you are from?

June 26 = National Chocolate Pudding Day -- Remember this pudding cookbook review? No? Go read it NOW.



June 30, 1971 = Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory along with The Willy Wonka Candy Factory is released -- When is the last time you enjoyed Wonka candy?
