National Dark Chocolate Day

Hello Fellow Bloggers,
For the month of February, month of Love, I decided to blog a series
on ‘National Days’ from the first thru the twenty-eighth.
Most are not holidays found one’s regular yearly calendar, rather days
listed on calendars with days devoted to special topics.
Today, the first day of the month there were thirty-one (31) selections
from which to choose.
My original choice of the day to share was ‘Baked Alaska’, a dessert of
American origin according to ‘Wikipedia’.
I remembered this decadent dish viewed years ago while browsing the
dessert section of my ‘Betty Crocker Cookbook’ purchased with a
specific number booklets of ‘S & H Green Stamps’, a rewards program.
The dessert consists of three ingredients ice cream, sponge cake and
meringue, the topper quickly browned at a high temperature.
Unfortunately, I had to opt for a second choice this morning ‘National
Dark ChocolateĀ Day’ due to lack of finding a free picture to download of
beautifully plated ‘Baked Alaska’.
Dark chocolate, in my opinion, is bitter due to lack of added sweeteners.
However, it was my morsel choice whenever I baked chocolate chip cookies,
a family favorite.
Approximately 34% of Americans prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate
due to its ‘supposed’ health benefits.
Are you a Chocoholic??
Comments welcome!!
