National Chocolate Day ~ July 7th

Did you know Chocolate is a vegetable??  It comes from the Cacaos tree found in rainforests.

All you need to do to celebrate this day is to eat Chocolate!!

Here is a suggested menu:

Breakfast: Your favorite chocolate cereal along with two or three chocolate cream-filled donuts. Wash it down with a little hot chocolate.
Mid-morning snack: A chocolate candy bar(with or without nuts) to hold you over and give you a boost until lunch.
Lunch: A big tall glass of chocolate milk is a must along with your meal. Try a piece of chocolate pie or pudding for dessert.
Mid-Afternoon: Eat healthy(???) with some chocolate covered raisins. This contains both vegetable and fruit.
Dinner: If you are an adult, sip a chocolate liqueur before dinner. Chocolate flavored coffee is a must with dinner. Dessert is none other than chocolate cake.
Nighttime snack: Chocolate ice cream, of course!

Here is a delicious No Bake Chocolate Cheesecake recipe for you to try.

No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake

1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1 (3 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
¼ cup butter, softened
1 (8 oz) container whipped topping, thawed
1 graham cracker pie crust (I decided to use an Oreo crust this time)

In small microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips on high for 1 – 1 ½ minutes or until chips are melted and mixture is smooth when stirred; set aside to cool.  (Don't do what I did and drop the entire bowl of melted chocolate on the floor.  It makes a huge mess that is not fun to clean up!)  In large mixer bowl beat cream cheese, sugar and butter until smooth.  On low speed blend in melted chocolate.  Fold in whipped topping until blended; spoon into crust.  Cover and chill until firm.
