National Hot Chocolate Day
On January 31, we celebrate national hot chocolate day. You can make this warm drink with ground chocolate, heated milk or water, and sugar. In this cold winter season, you can warm up yourself with the beverage. Make your rainy days or, if you are sledding or skiing make it more special with hot chocolate. Everyone loves this thick, creamy, and silky drink.
Although researchers are still not aware of the origins of hot chocolate, it is believed that the Mayans concocted the beverage a long time ago. In the early 19th century, Casparus van Houten Sr. invented a way to separate cocoa from butter. Eventually, his son managed to make the solution better and fat-free. As a result, cocoa powder was finally prepared. However, before all this, people simply drink hot chocolate. Since chocolate contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and biochemical compounds, it showed medicinal properties such as curing stomach related issues. Moreover, hot chocolate was presented during ceremonies in Victorian times. In 1400 AD, the Aztecs also considered hot chocolate as a significant part of their rites.
