I’ve never had much of a sweet tooth, but over the last few years I fallen in love with peppermint bark as a holiday treat. The simplicity of the ingredients let’s me focus on using really good quality chocolate which is great for flavor and keeps the sweetness factor in check. However, I’ve found that the real magic is adding rice krispies to the white chocolate layer. It creates a subtle crunch that gives this holiday treat a special something, and everyone who tries them always remarks about how much they love the crunch. We have multiple family holiday gatherings next week and I’m planning to make a few batches to share.

Since we were largely in Paris to celebrate my mother’s birthday, we thought it would be fun to try to visit at least one pastry shop everyday for a little something sweet. While we used David Lebovitz’s Paris Pastry App as our primary guide, as we wandered around the city, we found ourselves visiting any chocolaterie, patisserie, crepe stand, or ice cream cart that caught our eye. I’ve never eaten so many wonderful, and beautiful, sweet things in a single week. Here are a few of our favorites.
