National Milk Chocolate Day
Chocoholics unite—it’s National Milk Chocolate Day!
How is milk chocolate different from other chocolates? It's a mix of cocoa solid and either dry or condensed milk. While dark chocolate is traditionally used as a baking ingredient, this sweet treat is used to make chocolate candy bars, hot chocolate, and many delicious desserts.
Did you know that chocolate actually has mood-enhancing benefits? That’s right—chocolate can make you happy! This is due to the fact that it contains a stimulant called theobromine and a compound called anandamide. Now that’s a reason to celebrate!
Today, enjoy milk chocolate your favorite way. Happy Milk Chocolate Day!
What are some of your favorite milk chocolate candies or desserts or drinks?
