National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day

It’s National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day! Nuts have been a staple of the human diet for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks and Romans were fond of the walnut, Native Americans enjoyed the pecan, and the Chinese believed the hazelnut was one of the five sacred nourishments. People also believed that chocolate had divine properties.

The Aztecs and Mayans prepared drinking chocolate for all their sacred rituals. In the 17th century chocolate became a very fashionable drink throughout Europe and people soon learned that everything tastes better when it’s covered in chocolate. By the middle of the 19th century it was a common practice to dip items like pretzels, nuts, and fruits into melted chocolate.

Celebrate National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day with your favorite chocolate and nut combination!
