Welcome in 2019 with Chocolate

January 2 = National Cream Puff Day; Feast Day of St. Macarius the Younger, 4th century patron of confectioners because before he took his vows, he was a merchant who sold fruits, candies, and pastries.

January 3 = National Chocolate Covered Cherry Day

January 5 = National Whipped Cream Day - I used this so much over the December holiday season. Did you? Do you prefer to make it yourself or to buy it? I did both!

January 6 = National Shortbread Day

January 8 = National English Toffee Day - You can find articles on this blog about English Toffees here

January 10 = Bittersweet Chocolate Day; National Cream Cheese Brownie Day

January 19 = National Popcorn Day - My brother-in-law is an Eagle Scout. I'm a former Girl Scout who rose to the Senior level before our troop ceased to exist. We try to support neighborhood kids who are Scouts so this past 2018 fall we bought some popcorn from the Boy Scouts who visited our house. This is expensive for the amount you get but we tell ourselves that it is for a good cause. We'll open it on this fun food holiday.

January 21 = National Granola (bar) Day

January 23 = National Pie Day; National Banana Bread Day

January 27 = National Chocolate Cake Day - One of my favorites was the surprise piece of chocolate cake we got as part of our breakfast at the Garden Grill in Epcot Center of Disney World back in 2017 when my hubby and I visited for our 25th wedding anniversary. It wasn't so much the flavor but the thought and the surprise of it that made a huge impression on me. It tasted just fine though after that huge breakfast and hanging out with the characters it was simply a sweet chocolatey way to end our time at that one place in the entire Epcot Center.

January 30 = National Croissant Day

January 31 = National Hot Chocolate Day (apparently also in December though I'm unsure why we need it on multiple days)
