If 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 HOLIDAY?  

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 too.

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! 

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

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!
