Legos are always fun, but chocolate legos? That’s a whole new level of cool. Japanese illustrator and designer Akihiro Mizuuchi created a LEGO brick set made entirely out of different kinds of chocolate. Perfect for building, playing, then eating your creations afterwards.

Mount Rigi: A Day in the Clouds

Somehow the days just keep getting better. This morning I opened the windows to find a spectacular sunshine-filled view of Lake Lucerne, a welcome surprise after a few stormy days, and the perfect weather for an ascent up Mount Rigi, a must-see highlight to any trip through Switzerland. The peak of Mt. Rigi is visible from Lucerne’s city center on a clear day, easily recognizable by its pointed control tower antennae in the distance.

Gruyères.

The train from Lausanne to Gruyères cut through vineyards, golden in the morning sunshine, with just the slightest hint of snow accenting all the mediterranean colors. The train wound its way up and up through the grape fields, rising high over Lake Geneva, until the vineyards became stacked layers balancing over the lake, seeming ready to spill right into the water. It was a landscape just like this that first enchanted me with Switzerland. As the train made a final turn inland toward Gruyères, the landscape changed entirely, and suddenly everything was coated in a layer of snow—even the cows and sheep.

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Swirl

This delicious concoction was dreamed up by resident chef Tyson Wintibaugh. It’s a fancy way to spruce up a simple dessert. All you need is ice cream, chocolate syrup, and a cookie. If you’ve got one, a flower on top definitely adds a little something to the mix. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Swirl

Dreyer’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice cream

“Organic Midnight Moo” from Trader Joe’s, or the equivalent chocolate syrup

Dark Chocolate Almond Lacey cookies, (or your own home-baked favorite)

Scoop your ice cream, and swirl the chocolate syrup around creating a spiral pattern. Dig a cookie into the base of the ice cream and top with a fresh flower.
