Dominique Ansel Bakery

We had some time after our pilgrimage and headed over to the Dominique Ansel Bakery in Tokyo.

I didn't know much about the bakery before we went but when I heard it was opened by the creator of the Cronut I couldn't pass up the chance to go.

Everything was so pretty!

I tried to get the kids to share their blooming hot chocolates but no one wanted to.  Leon choose the Mr. Robato donut instead.

In the end everyone was jealous of Leon.  The hot chocolates were pretty but they were made with very dark chocolate.  They were bitter and not at all what we were expecting.  After adding sugar they were more editable for us.  But I ended up throwing most of them away.

My frozen s'more was my favorite.
It was a marshmallow on the outside with chocolate graham cracker crumbs and ice cream on the inside.   Sooo good.  I already want another one.

I also got a orange creamsicle cronut to bring home.
