Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The quirky mother-and-son team of the Help! My Apartment Has a Kitchen Cookbook is back with unsophisticated yet satisfying treats for the end of the meal. These chocolate desserts are about as far from haute cuisine as you can get: they're gooey and sweet, and most can be produced quickly (a handy index ranks the recipes by preparation time). There's nothing new about Almost Flourless Chocolate Cake or Triple Chocolate Brownies, but the tone here is cheery and appealing. Clearly, any book that gives recipes for Chocolate Pizza and Brownie Fudge Pie is not meant to be a comprehensive volume along the lines of Nick Malgieri's Chocolate, but a brief overview that includes quick fixes for those who eat straight from the Nutella jar. Kevin Mills contributes an introduction that begins, "I don't trust people who say they don't like chocolate," while Nancy Mills is a little more subdued in her "Mom Tips," which include time-saving suggestions like using bottled lemon juice in Chocolate-Lovers' Lemon Squares. A few lengthier recipes, such as Chocolate-Filled Baby Brioches, are challenging, but mostly this is unabashedly geared to beginners.

From School Library Journal

Adult/High School-An adult son and his chocoholic-enabling mom make chocolate history. Actually, they make treats of all kinds but include historical factoids about their sweets of choice. They also include step-by-step instructions and put "mom tips" in the margins to maximize the ease of each recipe. New confectioners or experienced cooks will have success with these desserts by following the "foolproof" cautions and cooking glossary at the end of the book. Each recipe includes the timing involved with preparation, baking, waiting, and/or chilling. A rating ranging from "very easy" to "not so easy" is also used as an indicator.-Karen Sokol, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book as a gift for a friend,a bona fide UC (Urepentant Chocoholic)who is also a mother of two small children. The appeal of uncomplicated recipes suitable for the gourmand's pallate should insure the popularity of this unpretentious, witty, informative cookbook. I tried the "Surpisingly Easy Fudge" wonderful and only two ingredients, I would never have thought to use Ice Cream! Also the Movie Star Brownies",Spicy Chocolate Cookies and You Deserve It Fudge Cake. Of course after using the book, I had to purchase another.

I found this book at our local public library, and after a quick peruse, found that I must own it. I enjoyed the author's humorous, clever writing and tasty recipes. (Didn't hurt that it was about one of my favorite subjects!) I haven't enjoyed a chocolate book this much since Sandra Boynton's "Chocolate: The Consuming Passion."

Format: Paperback
I am also an UC (Unrepentant Chocoholic) and I must say the authors know their audience very well. They hit all the right notes and push all the right buttons with the fiendishly rich and sinfully sweet recipes they present here. Like many of us, I'm trying to watch my weight, but I also feel like I want to try all of the recipes asoon as possible. The one's I've already tried were all splendid!
So to the authors: Shame on you! And....keep up the good work! ;)

This book was a gift from a friend of mine -- one who knows me well and knows that just looking at the recipes would give me pleasure. I enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoy the eating the treats created by the recipes. I'm not much of a chef, and I think these recipes are understandable and easy to follow -- and the "Mom Tips" are handy. I highly recommend this book and will give it as gifts to my friends in the future. It is a must have for any chocolate lover.
