For a few days, Paris was filled with sunshine and blue skies and it nearly felt like Spring had arrived…and then, the chilly winds and grey clouds returned. After a short walk through the Champ de Mars and a stop at Cler Fleurs, I decided to pass by Maison de la Chantilly to warm up, because chocolate is always a good idea.
As their specialty is Chantilly crème, it was a given I had to take a chocolat viennois. But, why stop there? So I also chose one of their beautiful pastries (you can never have too much chocolate, right?).
The chocolate is not as thick as what you’ll find at Angelina’s or Carette, but it had a nice milk chocolate flavor and it didn’t leave me feeling too heavy. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good, rich, thick hot chocolate, but more often than not it is so decadent that I can’t finish.The whipped Chantilly crème is delicious (I could probably eat just a cup of it alone!) and
