Have a Sweet World Chocolate Day!

Christmas is great, birthdays are fun, but I think I’ve just found my new favourite day of the year. World Chocolate Day! Not that I need an excuse to eat chocolate, but it’s nice to have a special day where you’re expected to eat lots of yummy chocolate all day. It’s a day to get inventive and make your day as chocolately as possible. You can start the day with chocolate cereal, chocolate spread is the perfect sandwich filling for lunch and of course you can enjoy all your favourite chocolate bars throughout the day for your snacks. When it gets to evening, how about a delicious steak in chocolate sauce, followed up by a big slice of chocolate cake? Then a nice mug of hot chocolate before bed will just finish off the day nicely.

Don’t forget to share your chocolate dishes and celebrations on social media! Perhaps you could treat someone to a box of chocolates as a lovely World Chocolate Day surprise?

Eat chocolate and be healthier!

We think that World Chocolate Day is the one day of the year when you can overindulge in your favourite chocolate treats and not feel bad about it, but if you’re still feeling the chocolate guilt then opt for dark chocolate which actually has a lot of health benefits. it’s packed full of powerful antioxidants, it helps raise your levels of HDL (good) cholesterol and lowers your level of LDL (bad) cholesterol, it’s thought to reduce your risks of heart disease, and even boost your brain function!
