National White Chocolate Day

White chocolate was first invented by Nestle in Switzerland in the 1930s and distributed in the U.S. in 1948. Made of cocoa butter, milk, and sugar, true white chocolate must be at least 20% cocoa butter, 14% total milk solids, 3.5% milk fat, and less than 63% sugar.
Technically, white chocolate isn't even real chocolate according to the Food & Drug Administration because it doesn't contain chocolate liquor, the key ingredient in all chocolates. What you call it doesn't matter to us -- we love the taste of white chocolate and can't wait to celebrate National White Chocolate Day!
