Boasting a rich and succulent consistency, chocolate generally makes for a favorable treat enjoyed by many around the world. As a delectable aliment, chocolate is quite satisfying on its own, but if there is another food that can complement it by enhancing the overall flavor and creaminess, it is definitely cheese. Not just any cheese, but gourmet cheese.

Though everyone’s palate is unique, we suggest starting your chocolate and cheese pairing adventure by trying a mild and rich cheese likeIle de France Brie with a creamy milk chocolate while contrasting the bittersweet dark chocolate with a robustly tangy fromage like Ile de France Roquefort.

If you’ve never had a recipe that paired the two foods together, try making our Chocolate-glazed St. André or our White Chocolate Cheesecake!

Even an old shoe would taste good dipped in chocolate!

National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day is coming up soon! All American chocoholics should celebrate December 16th by eating chocolate-covered treats, getting and giving chocolate as a gift and making unusual chocolate recipes at home!

A great way to celebrate National Chocolate-Covered Anything day with friends and family is by hosting a “chocolate” party. You can serve everything from chocolate fondue to sushi under chocolate.

This is the day to try chocolate on something you would never even think of. Or you can be more traditional and treat your guests delicious well-known combinations like chocolate and cheese!

Take our Chocolate-Dipped Berries & Etorki Cheese recipe, for example. The chocolate, cheese and fruit pairings will amaze you with a unique and juicy flavor!

Happy  Chocolate-Covered Anything day!!!
