Once upon a time, I worked from home for four weeks. One week, I caught a marathon of Top Chef: Just Desserts.
Then I could not stop thinking about desserts. I had to have them. The cravings were insatiable.
- I made brownies from scratch. Fine.
- I made molten chocolate lava cakes. Good.
- I ate old Easter egg candy that I found in the pantry. Surprisingly still delicious.
So, I meandered into Fabiane's on Bedford at night (I was running errands! I was vulnerable!) and got the cutest, chocolateyest thing I could find:
Behold, an entirely edible chocolate cup of chocolate mousse!
So adorable. So beautiful.
I hacked into it with my eager spoon.
I can't tell if these images are too suggestive. They make me feel dirty, but in a good way, so I put two in here.
Why yes, your eyes do espy an underground oasis of melted caramel in the center of a creamy chocolate mousse love nest!
I ate this alone in my room.
In my bed.
I am gross.
And it was great.
