Holiday Name: National Chocolate Eclair Day
Holiday Celebration: June 22

Chocolate EclairsThe French call the dough of these treats “choux,” which is skillfully baked to allow for a hollow inside. Then cream, custard, or purée is piped into its center and it is topped off with fondant icing.

If you’re wondering what an éclair means, it’s French for “lightning.” It got the name from the way it glistens when it is coated with a glaze.  Enjoy your favorite eclair on National Chocolate Éclair Day.

Take a look at the Ye Olde Time Chocolates Shoppe for chocolate eclairs.
