The beignets came out buried in 2 inches of powdered sugar...who knew you needed so much powdered sugar. (note: do not laugh while you take a bite of your beignet or you might find yourself coated in a layer of white powder...this happened to me the first time I had beignets at Cafe Du Monde). I like to think that beignets would make a nice addition to the Candyland board came. They could be nestled behind Candy Cane Lane, and you could go skiing in the fresh powder!
The cafe au lait was fantastic as always: nice and strong and really creamy. Delicious!
