Paris Treats To Pair With Your Hot Chocolate This Holiday Season

December 02, 2020
Everyone knows that in Paris, drinking coffee is practically a way of life. Why do you think there are loads of café in the city? Parisians drink coffee morning, noon, and night. However, during the holidays, there's another beverage that many, even the most avid coffee-drinker, would prefer: hot chocolate. Yes, coffee is as hot a drink as hot chocolate, but there's just something about the latter that gives a nostalgic taste to people's lips during the holiday season. Most especially if paired with these delectable Paris-favorite pastries. They're easy to bake at home too, so you don't have to go out to get them!

Macarons

Macarons are the type of sweets that go well with practically everything. A cup of coffee? Divine! Some milk? So sweet! Hot chocolate? Perfect! The key is that this delectable treat isn't as sweet as the other pastries. They're rich and flavorful, yes, but not so saccharine that pairing them with hot chocolate will make you diabetic. In fact, it's the clash of the richness of a macaron with that of hot chocolate that will really put your taste buds on a tailspin. It's no wonder there are a lot of places in Paris where you can get the best of them!

Financiers

What's another delicate French pastry that's perfect with hot chocolate? A Financier! No, you don't have to eat your accountant! A Financier is actually a centuries-old cake that has a slightly crunchier exterior with a fluffy inside. It was named as such because it rose to fame in the 19th-century in Paris' financial district at the time. Actual financiers, many of whom worked at the Paris Stock Exchange at the time, loved eating it because it was easy to carry, doesn't make their hands dirty, and they can store it for a long period of time and it'll still taste good.

Not to mention the light cream filling that will sweeten it all up and probably put in a sugar coma for a couple of minutes.

Brioche

Similar to the croissant, the crepe, and more, the brioche is probably one of the most quintessentially French pastries on this list. It's practically just bread, some might say the sweeter, softer, and daintier version of the baguette. Though the former has a more tender texture and definitely a softer taste. Pile on some butter, jam, or cream on a slice and you've got yourself great comfort food to warm you up for the colder days ahead. With a nice and rich cup of hot chocolate, of course! The blend of opposing tastes and textures will be quite the sensation in your mouth!
