If you're looking for something to do today then get a little nutty because it's National Chocolate Covered Peanuts Day!  Who doesn't like a little extra crunch to their chocolate?  Let's get right into celebrating National Chocolate Covered Peanuts Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Come on... really? You have to ask? When you wrap such a commonly eaten nut like a peanut in a sweet blanket of chocolate it turns into something awesome. Something they usually refer to as delicious. And when something is this tasty, it usually ends up being celebrated... which is the reason for today's holiday!  So first we have the peanuts, which are very common and are actually pretty healthy. Yes, some people are allergic to them but they are packed with nutrients. Peanuts are a good source of things like fiber, vitamin E and phosphorus. They contain mostly healthy, unsaturated fats, no trans fat, no sodium and have the highest ratio of protein of all the true nuts.

And their high niacin content helps keep your brain healthy and your blood flowing just how you want it. So not only do they taste good, but peanuts actually do good things for your body.  And then you have chocolate which, as with all food, in excess isn't a good thing, but it does have its benefits. Dark chocolate has been found to possibly help out with your circulation. And chocolate may also stimulate your brain, help fight cancer, prevent you from coughing and well... keep you from having the squirts!  But when you melt down the chocolate... nice transition huh? ;) ...but when you melt down the chocolate, drop peanuts in it and cool them down it becomes such a very common treat that many have already eaten plenty of times this year. It's odd to think that, in moderation, this treat might actually benefit you but it really could! So celebrate today guilt-free!

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So how can you celebrate today?  Well, I think to start you should head to a local candy store or the candy aisle in your grocery store. Scan the shelves and pick out some chocolate covered peanuts from the wide selection you're provided. Now you're set to munch on something sweet all day ;).
 
But don't be greedy, share with your friends, family and maybe your co-workers too! It's always a lot more fun to celebrate with others.  And why not play a little chocolate covered peanuts basketball with your mouth?  Just don't miss unless you're ok with eating them off the ground!  And if you feel like being creative you can head to your kitchen and whip up your own chocolate covered peanuts. But how are you going to get creative? Well, there is milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate for starters. There is also a handful of different types of peanut varieties out there like Spanish , Runner, Valencia and Virginia. Plus you can pour your chocolate onto wax paper and make different little chocolate covered shapes. So have a little fun with your sweet little creations and see what you can come up with.  I hope you have a chocolate covered day of nuttiness!
