Chocolate-Covered Cherry Day - January 3

The chocolate-coated cherry day is a great day for a special and delicious treat: a chocolate-coated cherry.
The chocolate is delicious, so are the cherries. Another day someone said, "Why not combine the two together?" Then the chocolate-coated cherry was born!
The chocolate-coated cherries were born by the small, family-owned candy maker Cella in New York in 1929 and immediately became a hit. They quickly became a world-famous candy. Years later, in 1985, Cella was acquired by the giant candy industry Tootsie Roll. Today, 90 years after they were first made, Cella's chocolate - coated cherries are still famous around the world for their liquid and rich filling flavor.

How to celebrate Cherry-coated Cherry Day?
The best way to celebrate Chocolate Coated Day is, of course, to watch cherries in chocolate and eat them (alone or with family / friends / guests). If you do not have time, you can buy chocolate-coated cherries at a supermarket or candy store near you, or you may happen to have a box of chocolate-coated cherries bonbonniere in the pantry.

Chocolate-coated cherry recipe:

Rinse the cherries well. Leave the stem for them and make a fine cut at the bottom from which the stone is removed.
Cook the cherries in water with sugar and lemon juice for about 25 minutes. While cooking, carefully lower the pot to the sides from time to time so that the syrup covers all the cherries completely.
Remove the cherries from the pot to a colander and let them cool slightly at room temperature.
In a separate pot, melt chocolate (bitter or milk) using the Ben Marie method.
Dip each cherry with the chocolate stem and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper or on a wire rack.
Refrigerate and transfer to a serving plate.

Enjoy the chocolate-coated cherry day!

Sweetest Day- The third Saturday in October

The sweetest day is a day celebrated in the U.S. every year on the third Saturday in October.
This day was founded by confectioners from Cleveland who came together to mark people's love for sweets and for each other.
The first time the holiday was celebrated, on October 8, 1921, they distributed 20,000 boxes of candy throughout the city, to all passers-by, newspaper boys, the elderly, the poor and orphans, all to ensure they had a "sweet day."
From there the idea spread to big cities like New York and Detroit, where sweet day activities began every year. Many charities have embraced this day, such as the Association for the Prevention of Child Cruelty, which began adopting the sweetest day on October 17, 1940.

How do you celebrate the sweetest day?
It's very simple. You can buy yourself a favorite candy and eat it with pleasure or surprise someone else, like a co-worker or good friend, spouse or relatives, in a pampering candy like heart-shaped chocolate.
You can also buy a packet of candies and distribute to passers-by, children in the class or friends at work. If you work at a service provider, such as a bank or a branch of a communications company, you can sweeten the time of those waiting in line for candy or just put an open and inviting candy box on your desk so that anyone who passes by can take it.

Have a very sweet day!
