|Pain Au Chocolat at Brix Bakery|
This week's Guilty Pleasure is especially dangerous because I can find it within a mile of my house! I snapped these beautiful Pain au Chocolat at Brix Bakery here in Delray Beach. There's just something about seeing these delicious pastries all lined up that just releases endorphins in my brain - YUM!
Pain au chocolat, also known as chocolatine in southwestern France and French Canada, is made from the same puff pastry use to make croissant - with the addition of a piece or two of chocolate (a very critical distinction if you ask me). When served warm, I have to say, it does not get much better! I love the scene in the movie "It's Complicated" when Meryl Streep takes her date, Steve Martin, to her bakery and they have a fabulous time baking these little beauties from scratch. Such a fabulous movie!
