Product description

From Publishers Weekly

The quirky mother-and-son team of the Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen Cookbook is back with unsophisticated yet satisfying treats for the end of the meal. These chocolate desserts are about as far from haute cuisine as you can get: they're gooey and sweet, and most can be produced quickly (a handy index ranks the recipes by preparation time). There's nothing new about Almost Flourless Chocolate Cake or Triple Chocolate Brownies, but the tone here is cheery and appealing. Clearly, any book that gives recipes for Chocolate Pizza and Brownie Fudge Pie is not meant to be a comprehensive volume along the lines of Nick Malgieri's Chocolate, but a brief overview that includes quick fixes for those who eat straight from the Nutella jar. Kevin Mills contributes an introduction that begins, "I don't trust people who say they don't like chocolate," while Nancy Mills is a little more subdued in her "Mom Tips," which include time-saving suggestions like using bottled lemon juice in Chocolate-Lovers' Lemon Squares. A few lengthier recipes, such as Chocolate-Filled Baby Brioches, are challenging, but mostly this is unabashedly geared to beginners.

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-An adult son and his chocoholic-enabling mom make chocolate history. Actually, they make treats of all kinds but include historical factoids about their sweets of choice. They also include step-by-step instructions and put "mom tips" in the margins to maximize the ease of each recipe. New confectioners or experienced cooks will have success with these desserts by following the "foolproof" cautions and cooking glossary at the end of the book. Each recipe includes the timing involved with preparation, baking, waiting, and/or chilling. A rating ranging from "very easy" to "not so easy" is also used as an indicator.-Karen Sokol, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA
