you're looking for something to do today then I hope you don't mind a
sugar high because it's National Chocolate Covered Anything Day!
Yep... ANYTHING! But let's get right into celebrating
National Chocolate Covered Anything Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Are you kidding? Do you know how many people love chocolate?
There are people out there that truly believe that chocolate can make
anything better; even the worst of worst days. So how do you make food
better? You cover it in chocolate! And who wouldn't want to celebrate
today? I mean, either you love chocolate or you're curious what some
random kind of food would taste like, covered in chocolate. So, it
doesn't matter if it's curiosity or your love for chocolate... almost
everyone is going to want to celebrate today! Sure, you can have
your chocolate covered cherries, raisins, pretzels and all that
"normal" stuff if you want, but pay attention to the special word in
the holiday title... anything! This is one of those general holidays
that really lets you explore a little and be creative. I mean, you've
all heard of chocolate covered insects, right? And I'm sure, thanks to
the internet, that you have probably seen some chocolate covered bacon
But have you ever heard of a chocolate covered chili
pepper? What about chocolate covered squid? And how do you think a
chocolate covered scorpion would taste? These are the kind of ideas
that holidays like this should spark in your mind. You're always
welcome to play it safe and eat things that aren't too "out there" but
there will always be that "what if?" in the back of your mind. So
you might as well cover it in chocolate and try it out!
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, if you want to take
the easy route, you're welcome to go to the store and see what
chocolate covered things you can find. You might end up finding some
interesting chocolate creations but, if not, you'll be sure to find
something that is covered in chocolate. I mean, a candy bar is usually
covered in chocolate, right? So, it's not that hard to celebrate!
But it's also not that hard to pick up some chocolate chips or
chocolate wafers and start melting them down. You've got dark
chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate and everything in between...
so take your pick! And then start thinking of different things you can
encase in chocolate. It has to be something that wouldn't clash with
the sweetness of chocolate, unless of course you're playing a practical
joke on someone.
So, think of things that you enjoy eating, that
would go well with a little extra sweetness, and start covering them in
chocolate! What do you think a juicy, chocolate covered steak would
taste like? What about a chocolate covered hot wing? Not creative
enough for you? What about chocolate covered chocolate milk ice cubes
to pop in things like coffee or hot cocoa, that is too hot? That might
take a little extra work to get the temperature right, so that you
don't melt the ice cube with the melted chocolate, but I think you can
handle it! Have a great day and enjoy covering it in chocolate!
