It's National White Chocolate Day! Did you know that white Chocolate has always been the mysterious chocolate, treated differently because according to the FDA, 'officially' it is not chocolate at all. That is because 'chocolate' must be made of cocoa fat (cocoa butter) and nonfat dry cocoa solids, an ingredient that is not found in white chocolate. White chocolate needs cocoa butter as this is what gives it that sweet yet mellow flavor and smooth and creamy texture.
Just three ingredients are needed to make these White Chocolate Haystacks; white chocolate, peanuts and pretzels. White chocolate has such a sweet and subtle flavor that complements the saltiness of the peanuts and pretzels. Perfect for gift giving.
