chocolate as only the '80s could do

Just a quick note of foreshadowing:

Occasionally my Jewish grandmother sends me things that she's had around for a while and thinks I'll dig. (I'll favor you with a picture of her fabulous vintage '60s aprons as soon as I can set up an appropriately Mad Men/Bioshock-y photoshoot.) Last week, she sent three back issues of Chocolatier magazine (which has apparently become DessertProfessional.com in the meanwhile) from 1985 and 1986.

Oh yes. 1985 & '86. You know what that means. And if you don't know what that means, allow me to demonstrate via a snapshot of a featured spread from the Autumn 1985 issue:

I think 5 mice are just right for a party. Any more than that and you get overmiced.

So I'm guessing the one in the back is 1986? Kid with the Mets hat? Yeah World Series!!!!

Also, the Mousse looks good. Can I come to Atlanta now please?
