Desaulniers, chef and co-owner of The Trellis Restaurant in Williamsburg, VA, has authored three previous celebrations of chocolate (Death by Chocolate; Celebrate with Chocolate; Death by Chocolate Cookies). His new book presents 70 new chocolate recipes, from Chocolate Espresso Frenzy Ice Cream to Chocolate Gingerbread Snowflakes. Desaulniers promises that these recipes are simpler than the elaborate creations in his other books, but while there are easy cookies and the like, there are certainly some fairly complicated desserts here, too. Many of the recipes are shown in full-page color photos; a brief final chapter includes tips on shipping holiday treats. For most baking collections.
