    Just a few more updates from yesterday to post, the first one a snack update from DisneyMamato4.


    She and her family were at Epcot and headed to France...


    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    [​IMG]





    Here's what they chose...


    [​IMG]

    Chocolate Eclair, Napoleon, and Duo Au Chocolate


    I was curious about the Duo au Chocolat so I found this fairly detailed description: The base is a chocolate cake, which has a small heap of chocolate mousse dolloped on top of it in the middle. Surrounding the cake and mousse is a dome of white chocolate custard, it was also described as a mousse, but it definitely has more of a custard texture. To top this chocolate, chocolate, chocolate dome, the Duo au Chocolat is dusted with cocoa powder, given a drizzle of chocolate sauce, and decorated with a chocolate ring.



    [​IMG]

    "She loved the cream out of the Napoleon!" :thumbsup2
