National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is observed on this day every year



Vanilla is the most popular ice cream flavour, but chocolate has been a close second since the Italians froze hot chocolate in 1692.

The celebration was presumably created by an ice cream producer to boost sales of the delicious delicacy, but the question remains whether there was a need to urge people to consume more chocolate ice cream in the first place.

To make chocolate ice cream, whisk together cocoa powder, eggs, cream, vanilla, and sugar.

The formula is then frozen, and for National Chocolate Ice Cream Day, the more ambitious celebrant could make their own ice cream-based dish, or simply open the freezer and grab any tub that is close at hand.
