You better plan your cheat day for tomorrow because it’s National Chocolate Cake Day and that’s definitely something to celebrate! Here’s a little science about why you’re probably a chocolate lover – chocolate triggers the release of serotonin and endorphins, which are neurotransmitters for happiness and pleasure. It also contains phenylethylamine, which elevates our mood when we feel happiness or love. So why not eat more chocolate cake right or maybe at least eat more tomorrow!
There are some great ways to incorporate this fun holiday into your meals all day long! Why not first start with some chocolate cake batter pancakes covered in chocolate syrup and whipped cream. This is sure to be a fun surprise for the kids to enjoy before they run off to school.
Then you can use that batter to make some delicious cupcakes with a fun surprise in the middle (like a nice slice of strawberry). Create the perfect chocolate frosting to go on top and share with your co-workers at work!
And for dessert after dinner – grab some Chocolate Cake at your favorite bakery! Because with dessert you need to go all out and everyone is sure to enjoy the outing! My personal favorite – Chili’s Molten Chocolate Cake that has melted chocolate center topped with vanilla ice cream and a thin chocolate shell!
Don’t want to go out for a delicious Molten Chocolate Cake, create your own with this heavenly recipe by Jenny Steffens. She lays it all out for you making it easy. You can pull it all together while everyone is at school/work or out playing and then serve it up after you’ve eaten dinner.
So how do you plan to celebrate this fun National Chocolate Cake holiday? Change things up and have a fun chocolate lovers day with the family.
