Overview

Got chocolate? Dark, milk, or white as snow; stuffed with nuts, filled with caramel, covered in shaved coconut; in an ice-cream shake, in a black forest cake, as a steaming brew or a thick fondue: There's nothing the cocoa bean can't do. For true chocophiles, chocolate is not an occasional treat, it's an obsession. Barbara Albright and Mary Tiegreen tap into this insatiable sweet tooth with a luscious, fully illustrated compendium all chocoholics will crave.

Continuing in the popular format, 1,001 Reasons to Love(tm) Chocolate presents decadent recipes, profiles of the world's greatest chocolate confectioners, and a special chocolate for practically every minute of the day, along with a Whitman's sampler of facts.

A compilation of mouthwatering images highlights both the nostalgia of classic childhood candies like Milk Duds and Junior Mints and the more mature pleasures of chocolate in its modern incarnations, from molé sauce to Godiva martinis. It's irresistible.
