Chocolate A Love Story Review and Giveaway!!


Oh Yes you read that right, the title has that wonderful word in it. Mmmm Chocolate!
Now I will be honest and say that I am more of a white chocolate kind of girl, although I LOVE all chocolate. Ha Ha Guess what? This book includes all types of chocolate throughout the recipes.

When I found out about a chance to review this book I don't think it took me more than 2 seconds to think about it. I am so glad I choose to review this book. Come on the title has two very important words in it, 1. Chocolate and 2. Love!

Chocolate A Love Story is a book which has 65 chocolate dessert recipes from none other than Max Brenner's private collection. In this book you can find a chocolate treat for any occasion, from breakfast to finding the right chocolate treat when you need a comforting hug.

Not only are the recipes amazing, the artwork for this book was done by Yonatan Factor. Each and every page has artwork that catches your eye and jumps right out of the book.

My kids thought that I made a great banana split but there is something about Banana split with caramel disco, chocolate punk sauce and roasted macadamia minimalism that kicks Mom's banana split to the curb.

We tried several of the recipes in this book and while it is obvious what the kids loved, my husband and I have a few favorites. One of them is the Home industry chocolate cheese pockets.

The Book:
Chocolate A Love Story
ISBN:
978-0-316-05662-5
Buy the Book:
You can buy this chocolaty book at
Amazon.com for around $20

No matter what type of chocolate you crave, you will find a recipe in this book that can satisfy that chocolaty craving.

  13. I forgot to tell you my favourite chocolate treat is this simple, simple receipe.
    It is my mom's
    Chocolate wafer cookies and cool whip is all
    you need, use a meatloaf pan, line up the wafers, put cool whip in between each one.
    Let sit overnight and enjoy. The wafers get
    soft. So good.

  23. Something I would love to learn more about is Blogging. I want to start my own blog, but just don't know where to start. Also, I would love to learn to garden. Oh how I love fresh veggies, but I can only grow certain things and have no idea what I am doing wrong.
