5“Eat More Chocolate”–Who wouldn’t agree with that?
By FoodieFanNJ
I love baking and own A LOT of cookbooks. Chocolate Bar stands out on my shelf because the recipes are fantastic. I’m more than a little intimitated by their mole recipe and the towering cake but others like the pudding, brownies, gelatin (who knew?), RED VELVET!!!, fudge, and the awe-inspiring chocolate cake will soon be dog eared and smudged. Perfect and delicious. Not sure how I feel about the body scrub–why waste chocolate if you’re not going to eat it?

This book has your standards–cookies, brownies, cakes, history of chocolate, kitchen supplies–but a really nice touch is the party ideas. I love fondue and the authors’ idea for a fondue party would be a great thing to do this winter. On a final note–the photos. What’s great about these are they show the way the food will really look–crumbly, gooey, and lopsided. The people shots are a nice touch, too.

4Fun with Chocolate
By BakerinDallas
I have a very large cookbook collection and was amused to add this unique title to my bookshelf. This is not your typical chocolate book, it contains tougne in cheek ideas on how to throw a chocolate tasting (both funny and helpful), sly sidebars, and tips on how to accentuate any party with chocolate (these authors are obsessed).

The portraits of both the people and the food are coffee-tablesque and amusing.

Finally, the recipes are arranged into classic, retro, swank and future categories with both your tried and true (delicious brownies) to your truly odd (chocolate gelatin). Everything I have made so far has been perfect and I have several requests for copies of both the hot chocolate and the spiced chocolate oatmeal cookies.

5Chocolate Bar takes the cake
By S. Dixon
This a great combination coffee table book/cookbook. I bought a copy for myself and have made the peanut butter cupcakes (delish and ended up looking exactly as they do in the photo), as well as the red velvet cake which my mid-Westerner boyfriend devoured. I also picked up a copy for my best friend’s birthday. She’s not as experienced in baking as I am, but she found the recipes easy to follow, and the drink recipes mouth-wateringly luscious.

As a design-freak, I love the graphic design and the photos. They authors also give great advice about presentation for all of the recipes-something that is oft overlooked. And hey, who doesn’t like chocolate?
