    Impress yourself and your friends

    I have had this book for many years. The recipes are easy to follow, especially with the 'chef's touch' comments on the side of each recipe. I like the format that clearly states ingredients needed as well as equipment before you begin. Even without the dream Kitchenaid mixer I have made these tasty treats with ease. Tonite we enjoyed the chocolate chip date cake. Simply delightful.

    This book is the Chocolate Bible

    I'm not a professional chef - cooking is just my hobby. But of all the recipe books I have on desserts, this one (and Death By Chocolate Cookies) gets the most use. It's the first one I go to for chocolate desserts. I've had my copy of this book since 1992, the year it was published, and can truthfully say that in that time, I have made practically every recipe in it. The desserts range from simple concoctions to fabulously complicated masterpieces (it took me two and a half days to make Death By Chocolate!). But if you have the time and the patience, none of the recipes are beyond the average cook, and many will be challenging to even advanced cooks. The good thing about these recipes is that, no matter what you make, it is sure to be consumed and enjoyed - almost everyone likes chocolate, I've found!
