Fauchon’s Mona Lisa Eclairs

From the hyper-luxe French foodie haven, Fauchon, comes these gorgeous éclairs coated with, not your typical glazed-over chocolate, but the Mona Lisa. Only the French could seriously put an iconic work of art on an éclair and not only get away with it, but execute it successfully. Once you get past Madame Joconde’s infamous glaze, take a bite: these chocolate and almond cream éclairs are rich, creamy, and indulgent, satisfying like a French pastry should. If that doesn’t make you smile, check out any of the wide-range of Fauchon desserts, which are stylish objects of art in their own right.
