We waited (albeit briefly) in line in order to shop at the Longchamp counter in Galeries Lafayette. Really? That was a new experience for me. Perhaps only in Paris you might have to queue up to browse handbags! Most of us apparently wanted to purchase the popular foldable bag. The line to pay was a bit longer. I have experience with that.
Why didn’t I think of it sooner? I make these every Christmas for some friends and my family who love them but they are so difficult to pack in tins because they take up so much room and tips also tend to smash if you don’t allow lots of time for the chocolate to become solid again. This year it occurred to me to turn the kiss upside down. Voila! Now I can pack them easier. The dark chocolates were a bit easier to flatten as they softened up quickly once pressed into the warm cookie. They may not look as cute to the traditionalists, but just think—now I can fit more cookies in your tin!

I was already hooked, but tonight I watched this rerun and it is probably one of my favorites. If you aren’t watching this, you should. Extremely creative, overtly and subtly hilarious—especially Brittany.
