We’re Celebrating National Chocolate Day with lots of different Chocolate Recipes

No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Granola Bars

It’s National Chocolate Day….what a dream come true! At the Honey House, we all (well, with the exception of Abbie) are complete chocoholics, so this is one of the best days of the year! Over the years, we’ve put together a nice collection of chocolate recipes with honey.

Chocolate for breakfast? You got it! Chocolate on the go? That too! Chocolate and…beets? Just you wait and see. Each recipe is worth a try and most are fairly guilt-free.

What is National Chocolate Day?

Beyond a Hallmark Holiday, National Chocolate Day was created by the National Confectioners Association to celebrate chocolate and chocolate lovers worldwide. We hope you will share your favorite chocolate recipes made with honey for consideration in this roundup.

Pumpkin Magic Bars

A perfect celebration of both Halloween and National Chocolate Day, these Pumpkin Magic Bars from our dear friend Namely Marly is such a treat. Perfect for on-the-go snacking! Whip up a batch of these for your party this week, and your guests will be in love.

The flavor in this Chocolate Honey Overnight Oats is amazing. You’ll find yourself looking forward to another bowl the next morning!

Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa

This dairy-free Hot Cocoa is a healthier treat than the dairy variety. Cocoa is a superfood that was once considered by some self-appointed health experts to be bad for your health. While the average chocolate bar probably doesn’t contain any real cocoa, those that do, with little sugar and low-fat content can be considered good for you. It has been proven over time that cocoa is good for health.

Dairy free hot cocoa, all of the pleasure, none of the guilt.

This sweet treat is not only chocolate-y good, but it’s also healthy too! Pistachios, cranberries, and dark chocolate have antioxidants, not to mention fiber, good fats, and vitamin C, so here’s a sweet treat Chocolate Pistachio Granola Bark that our friend Marly developed for us that you won’t feel guilty sharing with your friends.

This Chocolate Raspberry Chia Pudding is as easy to make as it is amazingly delicious! You wouldn’t believe that it’s good for you…it’s packed with fiber, antioxidants, and berry goodness. It’s almost as delicious as dessert!

It’d be a shame if you had boycotters of this vegan chocolate pudding just because the main ingredient is green. Save the surprise for after it’s gone. Or don’t tell, in this case, it’s really true, what they don’t know won’t hurt them.

Beetroot Brownies

These Beetroot Brownies are surprisingly delicious and deep rich chocolate is only part of the reason why. Baking with beets may seem like an odd thing, but you’ll have to trust us that they’re as good as the regular kind of brownie because you will know how much better for you than they actually are. Since beets naturally have a mild flavor, the cocoa shines through.

Truffles are an elegant candy that is actually very simple to make. The basis of a truffle is heavy cream, butter and whatever flavor you fancy. In this recipe, we sweeten the mixture with Eastern Shore Honey and a high percentage of cocoa chocolate.

Our Chocolate Dipped Strawberries are simple and delicious. Strawberry season is coming soon enough, but in the meantime, you can get organic strawberries from your grocer. These healthy Valentine treats can be thrown together in just 15 minutes. All you need are a few simple ingredients that will cost around $10 at the grocery store.
