Fellow chocoholics, today is Bittersweet Chocolate Day, a January 10 holiday. In case you didn’t get enough chocolate and sweets over the long holidays, here is a chance to delve into some bittersweet chocolate. Did you really need a reason to indulge!?

While milk chocolate may be the most popular type of chocolate, bittersweet chocolate has its place high on our list. Did you know that guys tend to prefer it, while gals usually prefer milk chocolate? Like ’em both!?? That’s perfectly okay…..and normal.

Okay, you know that it tastes really good. But, what distinguishes it from other chocolates? It is a sweeter form of dark chocolate. Unlike milk chocolate, it has no milk. It is darker, and richer than most other chocolates, and is the most popular chocolate for baking.
