July 7 is one of the best days of the year. Why? It’s Chocolate Day!
Breakfast: Whip up some chocolate chip pancakes or chocolate french toast. Or simply pair your usual breakfast with a glass of chocolate milk.
Lunch: Toss a chocolate pudding pack, dark chocolate, or a mini chocolate candy bar in with your lunch for a post-lunch treat. You can also incorporate chocolate into your actual meal. Try some chocolate chili!
Mid-Morning and Afternoon Snacks: Chocolate at snack time? No problem! Try chocolate covered raisins, fruit or nuts. Or you can add a piece of dark chocolate to your regular snack.
Dinner: Experiment with chocolate infused dishes at dinner time by making a dish with mole sauce, such as Women’s Health Magazine’s Poached (or grilled or baked) Chicken with Chocolate Mole or Hershey’s Cocoa-Coffee Spiced Chicken with Salsa Mole.
Post-Dinner Dessert: Not tired of chocolate yet? Follow dinner with a bowl of chocolate ice cream, a cup of hot chocolate, a piece (or two) of your favorite chocolate, or chocolate cake. The possibilities are endless! Browse through the dessert recipes on Hershey’s website for ideas.
