Today we celebrate a holiday that manages to be both vague and forthright in it's ceremony. Chocolate-covered Anything Day is not only a celebration of everyone's favorite food group, chocolate, but a celebration of unity and chocolate's ability to unite harmoniously with just about anything and everything. While you won't find chocolate-covered ants or other unusual delicacies in todays post, but if that's your bag, then what day better than today to enjoy your favorite chocolate-drenched fill-in-the-blank!
Fruit and chocolate have been chummy for a while now, but here's a combo I bet you've yet to see. Some Girl's Website mixed up a batch of Chocolate-covered Pomegranate Seeds and the results are in, pom seeds are the new raisins, only you won't find ME picking pomegranate seeds out of my muffins. For a super antioxidant upgrade, try substituting milk chocolate for dark chocolate—you won't be sorry!
Get a little ritzy without having to splurge with these Chocolate-covered Peanut Butter Ritz Sandwiches form Spoon Fork Bacon. These bite-sized morsels combine three of my favorite things: chocolate, peanut butter and crunch, so you can bet your buttons I will be singing like von Trapp child as I whip up a batch of these bad boys.
On the chocolatey-salty-crunchy note, this next recipe from The Tolerant Vegan is all sorts of yum. If you were having trouble just having one before they took a dip in the chocolate pool, I reckon you might as well surrender yourself to these Chocolate-covered Potato Chips now and never look back.
Even if you haven't tried them before you can imagine what the above recipes might taste like and your currently rumbling tummy and salivating mouth have to agree. This next and last recipe leaves a lot to the imagination, and embodies the phrase "don't knock it 'til you try it" both in preparation and consumption. Taste of Home does what it does best in the recipe for Chocolate-covered Bacon, it transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary in a fun and affordable way.
