Holly Jolly: Sucre in New Orleans
While in New Orleans a few weeks ago, I treated my taste buds to the best little sweet shop NOLA had to offer: Sucre. French for sugar, this sweet boutique specializes in wedding cakes, macaroons, handmade marshmallows, gelato, and chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! We all sampled so many of their creations. Each one getting a bigger "oh that's good" than the one before.
Between the 4 of us we tasted half of their treats and came out with 4 very different desserts - all to share of course! We splurged even further by getting their special extra dark drinking chocolate mix topped with the fluffiest softest marshmallows I've ever had.
I think what sold me though was the 2 adorable giant gingerbread man and lady inviting us in for treats. It's a shame they're exclusively located in New Orleans but they have a great selection in their online shop. For the person who has everything nothing beats chocolate!
On second thought maybe it's better for my pant size that they're not located everywhere....
