La Maison du Chocolat

I know. I took a long, long break in between posts. The worse part is that I wasn't even finished blogging about our New York City trip. The trip happened in August and it is October now! October! So many apologies to those who were happily following along. I have two more posts after this from our trip and then it'll be back to baking posts. I have plans to make some vanilla and matcha whoopie pies and then some spider cupcakes for Halloween. Fun!

So, let us jump into the world of:

La Maison du Chocolat
1018 Madison Avenue
New York, NY 10075
(212) 744-7117

Wheee! This beautiful chocolate shop is a part of the Rockefeller Center. They also had macarons in their display window:

And some gorgeous boxes to package their treats:

But the best part? The absolute icing on the cake? Well, it was a chocolate, but not any chocolate - the Sylvia chocolate. How fun is that? By the description in the Maison, if I was a chocolate, I would be milk chocolate with ganache filling. Um, sounds good to me!

I had to get the Sylvia chocolate, Howard and I also got the Rocher Lait, milk chocolate praline with roasted almonds and hazelnuts. One of my favourite memories was sitting outside of Rockefeller Centre, Howard and I eating one of the Rocher Laits and making yummy sounds. The chocolates were really, really good.
