This intriguingly specific Day celebrates a particular combination of flavours – dark, bitter chocolate and toasted almonds. This is one of the oldest recipes involving chocolate known in the English-speaking world, featuring as the only chocolate dish in an 18th-century cookbook. The Day stands alongside Milk Chocolate with Almonds Day.

This festivity exists mainly as an idea circulated on the internet. It is sponsored by the National Confections Association, and celebrated and encouraged by organisations such as food.com, a site which aims to encourage cooking and the appreciation of food by holding various different food days.
