There are lots of national days of the year devoted to chocolate. Here are just a few of them:

If you are a foodie, be sure to check out the calendar of national food days for September and our YouTube video about them. There is at least one each day of the month and many are devoted to sweets.

What is white chocolate?

White chocolate is different from its darker counterpart since it does not have cocoa solids in it.

In the strictest terms, that means that it’s not really a form of chocolate at all! But it tastes so good and works like chocolate does, so I am not quibbling about semantics.

The US Food and Drug Administration has a long article on the composition of white chocolate for the food purists out there.

Even if it’s not technically chocolate, it sure looks good on the outside of desserts and candy!White chocolate candies

Even though it has been accepted into the family, according to the regulation by the FDA it still must contain at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids and 3.5% fat and must contain less than 63% sugar to be labeled “white chocolate.”

With this composition, it is the perfect component in white chocolate desserts.White chocolate pieces

White chocolate peppermint cookies

These yummy and crunchy sugar cookies are dipped in melted white chocolate and sprinkled with crushed peppermint for a super easy and tasty cookie to share with a loved one.

Peppermint is one of those things that always makes me think of Christmas, just like gift giving, making snowmen, and poinsettia plants do. Fittingly, National Poinsettia Day falls in December.

White chocolate truffles and candy

These pastel looking Brigadeiro White Chocolate Truffles are lightly covered in pink and red candy hearts. They are a favorite dessert in Brazil.

Chocolate and hearts are two of the symbols of Valentine’s Day, and the candy decorating these truffles are in all three of the Valentine’s Day colors, so this would be the perfect dessert to serve for that holiday.
