The third week in March is American Chocolate Week - where chocolate shops, chocolatiers, chocolate manufacturers, and chocolate lovers all over the nation celebrate chocolate. This year it falls on March 19 and lasts until March 23.
Here are 4 great ways to celebrate American Chocolate Week:
- Drink some chocolate wine - If you're old enough, try the many chocolate wines on the market.
- Visit a chocolate shop - There is nothing quite like biting into a freshly made truffle or tasting really good chocolate
- Create something new in the kitchen - Sweet or savory, try cooking with chocolate
- Read a chocolate book - From the history of chocolate to flipping through recipes using chocolate, there are many books on the subject that can be found free at the library.
