🗓️ July 3
Are you ready to celebrate Chocolate Wafer Day on July 3rd?
We’re not talking about the wafer you use to repair the hull of a boat or the thin, crispy treat you receive during Communion. No, we’re talking about the humble chocolate wafer cookie, the one that is so thin that it is often overlooked in the world of desserts.
So, what exactly is a chocolate wafer? It’s a thin, crispy cookie made with cocoa powder, sugar, and flour. It’s not a chocolate semi-conductor or chocolate medical wafer, nor is it a chocolate communion wafer. It’s just a delicious cookie, plain and simple.
How it began
The origin of this holiday is a mystery, but we’d like to believe it was created by chocolate wafer lovers who were afraid that their favorite wafer thin treat would be overshadowed by more prominent desserts. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate such a scrumptious and thin cookie?
How to celebrate
When it comes to preparing for this holiday, be sure to stock up on chocolate wafers, so you have plenty to snack on. And keep them away from pets because as much as they may love chocolate, it’s not good for them!
For some fun experiments, try making a chocolate wafer cake, or adding crushed chocolate wafers to your ice cream. You could also make a chocolate wafer pie crust or use them as the base for a mini cheesecake.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even try dipping your chocolate wafers in peanut butter or Nutella. The possibilities are endless!
So, whether you’re a fan of the classic chocolate wafer or a newcomer to the world of wafer cookies, be sure to celebrate this delicious holiday on July 3rd. Just be careful not to lose your wafers, they’re so thin, they might just disappear!
