Today at BulbHead we invite you to indulge -- it’s Chocolate Day! Chocolate is, hands down, America’s favorite flavor. It’s in everything from cereal, cakes, candies, ice cream, to so much more. Surely a flavor of such high caliber deserves its very own special day of celebration. Sip on chocolate milk, treat yourself to a chocolate ice cream cone at lunch, snack on some chocolate-covered raisins, you get the idea. The possibilities for snacking are endless! Today we’re celebrating sweet, delicious chocolate by sharing fun ways you can enjoy this delectable treat with your friends, family, and coworkers.
Get creative for Chocolate Day by crafting your very own candy bowls. First, get a big tub of perler beads, an oven-safe glass bowl, and cooking spray. Spray your glass bowl with the cooking spray and then dump your perler beads inside. Press down until you have one solid layer of beads and until they start to climb up the sides of your bowl. Just make sure they’re in one layer! Bake in the oven at 375° F for 12 to 14 minutes. Keep your eye on it. The plastic beads will melt, forming a super fun bowl shape. Using oven mitts, carefully take your glass bowl out of the oven. Pop the perler bead bowl out of the glass. Tada! You have a brand new colorful candy holder. Let cool and display your treats.

Here at BulbHead, we love our sweets (they’re all over the office!). Overwhelmingly, the favorite candy around here is Sour Patch Kids. As for chocolates, we’re a bit more versatile – we love Gertrude Hawk, Godiva, Toblerone, and Baby Ruths.
We’d love to hear, what’s your favorite candy? How will you celebrate this delicious holiday?
