Chocolate, Chocolate & More Chocolate!
By author: Elie Tarrab

Calling all chocoholics
No matter how it’s prepared—in a chocolate Lava Cake or a bite-sized Orange Liqueur Praline—nothing says decadence like chocolate. With more than eighty recipes for chocolate truffles and ganache, candies and cookies, sheets and other treats, you can open up a whole new world of deliciousness. 

Create chocolate bars with mint, nougat, caramel, or rum raisin and hazelnut. Put a chocolate pencil inside a kid’s lunch bag as a surprise. Celebrate with a Champagne Truffle. Make the holidays merry and bright with a Christmas log. Delight guests with something unusual like a Palet d’or, or a creamy disc covered in shiny gold leaf. Round out the dessert menu with ice creams and popsicles, eclairs, souffl├ęs, tarts, brownies, biscuits, macaron hearts, and much more. And to help anyone, even beginners, handle all the necessary techniques, master baker Elie Tarrab gives easy-to-follow instructions on melting and tempering, crystallization, dipping and enrobing, molding, and creating a hollow figurine. With stunning pictures, you’ll soon be in chocolate ecstasy!
 
Our Review:
Let's face it, who does not like chocolate?! I think that even in a room full of people, it would be difficult to find 1 person who does not care for chocolate. Personally, I am a huge fan of chocolate. I love all things chocolate. During the Christmas holidays, I made a lot of different chocolate treats to give away as gifts. Typically, I only make chocolate treats for the winter holidays, but with Chocolate, Chocolate & More Chocolate! book in hand, I am excited to make some chocolate treats for my friends and family this Easter. I am looked through the book fairly well. While some of the recipes appear a little difficult for a inexperienced baker like me to manage, I would say that most of the recipes seen very doable to me. I have made Rice Krispie Treats with Milk Chocolate and Candied Pecan Dragees, and both of them were big hit with my family. I have my eyes set on the chocolate eggs recipe. I am looking forward to trying it for Easter this year.
