Mademoiselle de Margaux Chocolate Covered Cherries

The downfall of the youth of today is that they just don't get the cultural reference of that moment-in-time arrangement of words,

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy.*

Poor lil grommets, don't know what they are missing.

Such a quality expression too!. Not to mention it's got a really catchy tune.

Just try to say that and not smile.

So that, obviously, that is the golden phrase emitting from my rosy lips every moment I think of Shauna over at Gluten Free Girl (blog) and her breaking the news that she and The Chef are expecting a baby girl in August.

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy.

Of course, (in a fit of generosity) as a little mother-to-be, I guess it makes sense she had these chocolate covered booze-infused French delights from ChefShop sent to me instead of to herself...for one thing, she is just really nice in sending an unexpected gift, (which really, I owe her!) but she also probably pegged me as the perfect person to gain sympathy weight.

Oh those crafty pregnant ladies...

Well imbibing in calories is no trouble with these beauties (which are very much gone as of this writing) are as easy on the eyes as they are to eat.

I really was surprised and thrilled to receive two boxes of this incredible Mme de Margaux sweets at Ms. Shauna's request. One sky blue box of chocolate covered cherries with armagnac and the other of equally amazing chocolate covered grapes with rum. Which rhymes with yum. Happy Happy Joy Joy indeed.

They were so good, I simply must sing their praises. They were so boozy the Ombudsman refused to eat one before getting behind the wheel of his (hybrid) car. They made my head swim, my heart swell and my mouth smile. They are chocolate perfection.

Now peaches, on this random late winter (for some) 80 degree (for others) day, I am going to urge you to click on over to ChefShop and make a box of these your own.

So here is to the Happy Happy Joy Joy of new life, and new treats.
