Food & Drink
Snacks & Desserts
Coinciding with Valentine's Day, National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day celebrates all flavors of cream-filled chocolates, of which there are many. Raspberry, strawberry, coffee, mint, chocolate, coconut, orange, lemon, vanilla, cherry, rum, and caramel, are some of the most common cream-filled chocolate flavors. These chocolates have creamy centers, but the centers are usually not made with real cream. The flavor of the cream often comes from extracts, flavorings, liqueurs, fruit juice, or powdered ingredients. Local confectioners make cream-filled chocolates and sell them in shops, but the chocolates might most often be found as part of boxed chocolate.
How to Observe National Cream-Filled Chocolates Day
One of the easiest ways to celebrate is to pick up a box of chocolates that includes cream-filled chocolates, perhaps from Russell Stover or another reputable brand. Another idea is to pick up cream-filled chocolates at a local chocolate shop. Finally, you could make your own cream-filled chocolates. Many recipes can be found online:
