In the midst of finals week, Stephanie and I decided it was a good idea to pull an all-nighter and get cronuts at the Dominique Ansel Bakery. When the clock struck seven in the morning, we embarked on a snowy fifteen minute walk downtown. Even on this cold wintery day, cronut crazed fans had lined up hours before the store had even opened. After an hour of waiting, we finally found ourselves in front of the cashier, placing our order for four cronuts (two for ourselves and two for ours friends Tiff and Amy). December's cronut flavor is Valrhona chocolate champagne with fresh orange zest sugar and if the weather permits, I suggest you head on over to the bakery before the month is up! They are to die for!
