Celebrate National Bittersweet Chocolate Day the Right Way!

Who doesn’t love chocolate? National Bittersweet Chocolate day is January 10th, and it’s time to get creative. Sure, you can go out and buy a bar of bittersweet chocolate – but why not celebrate this special day with something memorable? Let’s break down some delicious ways to enjoy National Bittersweet Chocolate Day!

Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles

These truffles are sure to make your mouth water. All you need is heavy cream, butter, bittersweet chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and a few other ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Melt the chocolate chips in the cream and butter mixture on low heat until it’s completely melted. Then let it cool for about an hour in the refrigerator before rolling into balls and coating them with cocoa powder. Delicious!

Bittersweet Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake is always a classic for any occasion – especially when using bittersweet chocolate. This recipe calls for all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt, sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, vegetable oil, sour cream…and that all-important bittersweet chocolate. Preheat your oven to 350°F (177°C) and prepare two 9-inch cake pans with cooking spray or parchment paper circles. Mix all the ingredients together until just combined; then divide the batter evenly between both pans. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Top with freshly whipped cream or frosting of your choice – which also works great with bittersweet chocolate as well!

Hot Bittersweet Chocolate Drink

Who said celebrating National Bittersweet Chocolate day has to be all about baking? You can celebrate it with a hot drink too! Heat up some unsalted butter and heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat until combined; then add in chunks of chopped bittersweet chocolate and stir until melted. Add some sugar to taste if desired; then pour the drink into mugs and top off with marshmallows or cinnamon if desired.

National Bittersweet Chocolate Day doesn’t have to be boring – there are so many ways you can get creative while enjoying this special day! Whether it’s making truffles or cakes from scratch; heating up some hot cocoa; or simply indulging in bars of delicious bittersweet chocolate – you’re sure to find something that suits your taste buds perfectly!
