If you’re not a fan of dark chocolate, you’re in luck. Milk chocolate is here to save the day!
That’s right, it’s a whole day dedicated to the creamy, dreamy goodness that is milk chocolate.

But before we begin, let’s get one thing straight: milk chocolate is not just any chocolate.
It’s not dark chocolate, white chocolate, or chocolate-covered ants.
It’s the chocolate that we grew up with, the one that we put in our lunchboxes, the one that we melt for s’mores, and the one that we secretly sneak from the pantry.
Milk chocolate is made by adding milk powder, condensed milk, or liquid milk to chocolate liquor. It’s creamier and sweeter than dark chocolate, making it the go-to choice for kids and anyone with a sweet tooth.
It’s a luxurious blend of cocoa solids, sugar, and milk that results in a smooth, velvety texture that simply melts in your mouth. And let’s not forget the added bonus of a slightly sweeter taste that satisfies those with a sweet tooth.

How it began

Milk chocolate originated in Switzerland. Invented by Swiss chocolatier Daniel Peter in 1875, milk chocolate quickly became a popular treat around the world. The combination of cocoa and milk made it smoother, sweeter and creamier.
And thank goodness he did, because now we have a whole day to celebrate this delicious invention!

Now, I’m not sure who came up with the idea of Milk Chocolate Day, but I imagine it was a group of milk chocolate enthusiasts who were tired of being overshadowed by their more sophisticated and bitter cousin, dark chocolate. They probably gathered together, armed with bags of chocolate kisses and gallons of milk, and declared that milk chocolate deserved its own day of celebration.
Who knows?

And so, every year on July 28th, we take a moment to honor this luscious and creamy chocolate. Whether you’re indulging in a chocolate bar, baking chocolate chip cookies, or sipping on a hot cocoa, there are so many ways to enjoy milk chocolate.

How to celebrate

When preparing for Milk Chocolate Day, make sure you have plenty of napkins handy.
Things can get messy when chocolate is involved. And don’t forget to hydrate, milk chocolate is delicious but it can be a bit heavy on the stomach.

As for how to celebrate, the options are as infinite as there are flavors of chocolate!
You could indulge in a classic milk chocolate candy bar, bake some milk chocolate chip cookies, or even whip up your own batch of milk chocolate truffles.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even try making your own milk chocolate from scratch using cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Just be warned, it’s not for the faint of heart!
You can throw a milk chocolate-themed party, make chocolate milkshakes, or create a chocolate fountain.
You can even have a milk chocolate tasting party, where you and your friends try different brands of milk chocolate and rate them on taste and texture.

Safety tips

Make sure you keep your milk chocolate away from your pets, as it can be toxic to our furry friends.
And for those with allergies, be sure to read the label carefully, as milk chocolate can sometimes contain other ingredients like nuts or soy.
If you’re lactose intolerant, maybe just celebrate from afar.
And letโ€™s not forget not to leave your chocolate bar in the sun!

In conclusion

So go ahead, treat yourself to a decadent piece of milk chocolate and bask in the creamy goodness. And if anyone asks why you’re indulging in such a delicious treat, just tell them it’s a holiday – they won’t argue with that!
Happy Milk Chocolate Day, everyone!

The reason he went smiling all the way to the jail is because the judge sentenced him to a life behind chocolate bars.
