When we were in Paris we happened upon a new little chocolate boutique that had just opened up. (Aux Anysetiers du Roy, 45 Boulevard Saint-Germain 75005 Paris, France 01.43.25.22.40) It was off of Boulvevard Saint-Germain, near the Marché maubert (18 Place Maubert 75005 Paris, France) which sells the best cooked sausages in the world (Charcuterie st Germain Traiteur: Tel 01.43.54.32.31). We were only there 4 days yet we went there twice. This is a fun place to wander around for sure, with the market, bookshops, cafes and movie theatres, it feels very Parisian…. probably because it is!
Aren’t those guys gorgeous? I reccomend getting them wrapped up and eating them in Jardin du Luxembourg. That is one beautiful park, statues, flowers, the works. And with a great playground for the little ones too, a carousel, ice cream etc… it’s a win for everyone.
If you can’t pop over to Paris, or don’t want to order it from the internet, you could try making your own version of fondu au chocolat… We ate it with chestnuts and strawberries, though you could really dip anything into this and it would taste awesome. Fingers included :)
