From the cover: “Who can resist the lure of smooth chocolate mousse at the end of a dinner party, a nutty chocolate brownie at tea-time or fresh cream truffles for a really special occasion? The Good Housekeeping Complete Book of Chocolate is the ultimate guide to chocolate cookery, gathering together within one volume both well-loved classics and innovative new recipe ideas, step-by-step techniques and essential tips which ensure wickedly delicious results, every time.

Over 150 recipes range from cakes and biscuits, through hot and cold desserts, to gateaux and confectionery. From Double Chocolate Muffins and Bitter Chocolate and Orange Liqueur Ice Cream to a spectacular White Chocolate Wedding Cake, all the recipes have been double-tested in the renowned Good Housekeeping Institute kitchens. In addition, a fully illustrated step-by-step section covers all the essential techniques, including tempering and making chocolate decorations such as leaves and caraque. ‘Watchpoints’ and special notes throughout the recipes provide further foolproof guidance by highlighting exactly where problems might occur — and how to prevent them.

Illustrated throughout with mouth-watering photographs, the Good Housekeeping Complete Book of Chocolate is the essential reference for all aspects of cooking with chocolate — and a superb source of utterly irresistible chocolate treats.”
