Bonjour! It’s Eclair Day


If you’ve stopped by this blog before, you already know, I’m a gal who loves her chocolate. And, I rarely miss a chocolate holiday. Mainly, because it’s an excuse to indulge, but also because I want to be a responsible chocoholic.


So then, onto the celebration.  

It’s National Eclair Day.



Eclairs are delicious

Eclairs are divine.  

There’s just something heavenly about rich thick fudge, embracing cool fluffy cream– all in the same bite. Two opposites, melting perfect harmony in your mouth. gulp

People have been known to do some crazy things at the tempt of the luring eclair.


But today is a holiday…so enjoy!
