National Chocolate Caramel Day
annually on March 19th
Today celebrates the blending of two sweet tooth favorites: chocolate and caramel. They make a great pair in candy bars, ice cream, brownies, and other desserts. The famous chocolate man Milton Hershey got his start as a maker of caramels. Before getting rid of his caramel factory and starting the Hershey Chocolate Company, he even made some chocolate covered caramels!
How to Observe
Celebrate the day by eating anything that mixes chocolate and caramel! Have a candy bar with caramel and chocolate, such as a Snickers, Twix, 100 Grand, or Baby Ruth. Make yourself some caramel brownies. Have chocolate and caramel ice cream and put chocolate and caramel syrup on top. There are so many recipes that combine the two sweets that you could try.
