Peanut butter and chocolate Religieuse cream puffs. Swipe for the inside. Believe it or not, I never had peanut butter before moving to Canada! It’s just not something you can find in French grocery stores, but I learned to love it with time. Though my favorite combination is with raspberry jam, I also love it … Read more

Coffee, caramel and dark chocolate mini tart. This tart was definitely a balancing act between my desire to have something comforting and my reluctance to oversweet desserts.

Milk chocolate and hazelnut crunch bonbons. 2nd try at bonbons with another filling.

Pain au chocolat, the cut! I almost cried when I saw the cut 😁. It took me 2 years of trial and errors, lots of advice from @vassvice and @acropate until I got this honeycomb looking croissant. I might have done 20 batches before I got this. So don’t lose hope if you cannot make … Read more

Pain au chocolat before proofing Can you see all these layers? 😍 It means that the lamination stage went well, especially when the layers are so well defined. I went the extra mile and made my own chocolate bars to go in there. Plus the lamination was all done by hand. Honestly it’s the best … Read more

The taste is at a whole other level than with regular chocolate bought at a grocery store! Underneath … Read more
