Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The chapters include everyday cakes and desserts, cookies, muffins and cupcakes, bars, celebration cakes; pastries, tarts, and cheesecakes; mousses and ice creams, petit fours and candies, and drinks, frostings, and sauces. As with other "500" cookbooks, there are lots of color photographs that I always find to be a source of inspiration to try the recipes.
Some traditional desserts can be found such as chocolate chip cookies, brownies, chocolate cake, basic chocolate sauce, and pudding, but there are so many different recipes as well including chocolate orange cheesecake muffins, triple chocolate terrine, praline truffle, chocolate puddle cookes, and sticky apple and chocolate cake, to name just a few. The only recipe I've tried so far and with good results was the white chocolate chunk cookes which will become a favorite. Other recipes I have bookmarked to make besides those already mentioned are ginger and chocolate chip cookes, energy bars (might be a good breakfast treat), cheesecake brownies, and strawberry and chocolate marshmallow bars.
Anyone who loves chocolate will enjoy this cookbook. It would make a great gift for such a person if not for yourself.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
As a note for those who are frequent buyers of the 500 series this one does repeat several things from the cookies, cupcakes and cakes books so not as much new comes out of it but still some good ideas.
