Today is National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day! If you are anything like me, you know the value of a good chocolate covered raisin. They are quite possibly one of the best candy treats in existence. I'm not really a fan of chocolate and fruit mixed together aside from strawberries, bananas, and raisins. I don't understand the people who can eat chocolate "infused" with orange or raspberry. That's off topic, though. Chocolate covered raisins are delicious and precious. I say precious because they melt FAST if you aren't careful in the summer, and sometimes they come pre-melted n the store. It can be hard during these coming months to enjoy them as you so easily can in the fall, winter, or early spring. So perhaps today is a day to go out and celebrate them before it is too late. A word of advice from a self-proclaimed chocolate covered raisin professional: Stick to Raisinets. There may be a better brand, but I haven't found it yet.
