A Brief History
On February 2, 2023, while the US celebrates Groundhog Day, more serious Americans are celebrating a much more important “national day,” namely National Heavenly Hash Day!
You may immediately think of the common offering by ice cream manufacturers, consisting of vanilla ice cream with some combination of marshmallow, chocolate, and nuts whipped together in a gustatory delight, but Heavenly Hash can be so much more than that!
Heavenly hash can be concocted from some kind of marshmallow crème or whip mixed with your choice of ingredients, and ice cream is NOT mandatory. Cakes, fruit salads, candies, and whatever your imagination allows are all fair game.
We recommend you get together with friends and family and have an informal contest to see who can bring the most delicious form of Heavenly Hash. Enjoy!
