I love Chocolat, too! It’s a feast! Those beauty shots of the chocolate, Django Reinhardt as played by Johnny Depp, crusty old Judy Dench, that mind-boggling tree by the river, Roux promising to get that squeak out of her door (*wink wink!)! I might be weird, but it has become our “Easter Movie”, since it takes place during Lent and ends on Easter Sunday.
My husband adores cardamom so the truffles look like they are definitely going to happen over here! Maybe a surprise for our anniversary at the end of the month… Thanks for the link.

I can’t wait to try these new truffle recipes. I love making them for Christmas gifts. And that is definitely one of my all time favorite movies. Might have to watch it this weekend while I make one of these new recipes! Thank you. Also, very well written post. I always love your posts!

I see they have a website in the build. I never went when their malted counter existed many years ago, I’m sad I missed that. I know they do an annual candy cane-making event.
Hope you like it as much as I do.
This will help – the chocolate-covered strawberries are delish!!!

I happened to see it in Athens. A girlfriend and I were homesick college students and saw that it was playing in the theater. We figured it would be dubbed in greek but it was still better than nothing. But, it was in English with greek subtitles so it was awesome. It is still one of my favorites.

And, love the truffle recipes. One of my favorite gifts to make!

It’s an old-fashioned saying. So, a horse’s worth (back when people relied on them to get around) was estimated by his teeth – you could tell a lot about a horse from his teeth. So when it says you don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth, it basically means you’re not looking at the label/price tag on your gift: It’s a present, you won’t take it for granted.

I love that movie and I totally agree that it gets my mouth watering looking at all the chocolate creations, but I never thought of it as a Christmas movie.

I cannot tell a lie: there is nothing I love QUITE like I love a Payday bar. The organic-produce-buyer in me cringes, but man. That salty sweet deliciousness can’t be beat : )

I can’t wait to check out Commodore!

Who cares! Hahhhreeee Pohhhhtahhh (sorry. Big fan here.)

I LOVE it! I adore the actors as well – J.Binoch so beautiful and alluring, Johnny D. very sweet (and I’m not his biggest fan)!
The colors and settings of her shoppe are phenomenal, the mood, amazing! I never thought I’d crave chicken smothered in chocolate, but it all looks so darn delish!
A must see ♥

I am lucky to have an old-fashioned shop around the corner – Commodore. It is a favorite treat although I don’t often get it. I still adore a Valentine heart box filled with my creams and caramels. So romantic to me. It is by far my favorite chocolate!

Embarrassingly, on the cheaper side, and I have to hide this fact usually, I DO like Hershey’s. Shhh!

I usually watch it around Valentine’s Day, actually. And since most of the movie takes place during Lent, it seems like Easter would be the religious holiday most associated with it.

Harry Potter is another one of those movies that has nothing to do with Christmas, but seems to play as a marathon leading up to it.

But a saleswoman in one of the New York stores told me they’re actually based out of the city – so who knows. Either way, great cities, great chocolate. I’m SO intrigued by the ‘lifestyle’ building they’re doing in Chicago! It’s LEED and everything!

One of my favorite movies of ALL TIME. Interestingly, this is one of those odd cases where the movie outshines the books by far. And in yet another case of life imitating art, hot chocolate is our treat of choice every Monday night at my daughter’s request.
