Warm Vanilla Sugar in Switzerland

Things have changed a bit for me lately. I moved to Switzerland, left my beautiful kitty behind with the boy (who will be joining me in May), and started a new job studying insects. I’m excited to begin this journey though, and I’m looking forward to learning new Swiss recipes to share with you guys! Beginning with chocolate – check out the grocery store isle’s here!!

Last summer when I visited Switzerland I posted about two traditional Swiss meals – Swiss Cheese Fondue and Raclette. The main ingredient in both recipes? Cheese of course.

Things are a bit different here in Switzerland. When I want a giant tub of peanut butter to make Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cookies, or Buckeyes, I can’t just run to the nearest Superstore and buy it! Everything here is closed on Sundays and stores usually close in between 4 and 7pm every day. So, I have to use what I have on hand. I’m really excited to see what I come up with, but in the meantime, have you seen this cake by Sprinkle Bakes? I’m in love.


  1. Wow, how exciting! Chocolate and cheese in abundant quantities? Sounds like a good move to me :)

  2. I love the Sound of Music-esque pose at the top! I think you should try one of each chocolate, just for comparison sake. You can’t make an informed decision if you don’t try everything right?

    • haha I totally agree! I did that last year and had a huge rating system and everything! I’m going to continue the same thing this year…once I’ve tried all my old favorite chocolates first :)

  3. You lucky girl! My goal is to travel to Switzerland. I want to ski there, see cows with bells and head straight to that chocolate aisle. Can’t wait to hear everything about your new life there :) xo

  4. How exciting! And I hope you will continue to keep us informed on all the good chocolate, hehe. And maybe do a giveaway? ;-)

  5. Oh my gosh, I am so jealous…you get to eat all the fondue you want! What an exciting job you must have to move to Switzerland, enjoy the chocolate for me!
