Abstract:

A chocolate lover born and bred, Lora Brody knows better than anyone that when the urge to splurge strikes, there is no substitute for rich, silky, sumptuous chocolate in one of its many delectable guises. Chocolate reigns supreme on a short list of national treasures, ranking right up there with Ted Williams and Mickey Mouse. Add a dose of American ingenuity and you've got the perfect recipe for indulgence. In this lovingly compiled collection of sweet treats both plain and fancy, Lora Brody builds an irresistible case for eating chocolate morning, noon, and night. In chapters entitled The Candy Store, Comfort Me with Chocolate, Chocolate for Breakfast, Isn't It Romantic?, and more, she presents the stuff of which a chocolate lover's dreams are made. Start the day with chocolate chip pancakes with chocolate butter or chocolate monkey bread; perk up a lunch box with homemade whoopie pies or chocolate caramel cheesecake brownies, or take a trip down memory lane with tunnel of fudge cake and real Boston cream pie. Set a festive mood with white chocolate heath bar cheesecake or chocolate raspberry torte. There's even a section of fun-to-make chocolate favorites that are perfect for kids. Whether the occasion is a formal celebration requiring a showstopper, a casual meal with family, or simply an after-school snack, there is a chocolate indulgence to make the moment that much sweeter. Lora Brody's always letter-perfect recipes guarantee this is a collection chocolate lovers will return to time and again.
