The best day of the year is here. Yes, you guessed it right, its World Chocolate Day. Chocolate has been always loved with pouring hearts by every age group. Be it a kindergarten kid with a mouthful of chocolate dripping all over his toddler t-shirt, a teenagers’ dilemma which cannot be solved without a huge bar of chocolate or your parents’ late-night voyage to the refrigerator to have that ‘one last bite’ of the leftover truffle cake. It is no surprise that chocolate has been incorporated into almost every dessert and snacks. Be it a crumbly Chocolate Chips Cookie, Chocolate Mousse, a thick Chocolate Shake and… well, the list is never-ending.
