Format: Hardcover
I was having chocolate cravings, and things had been busy enough lately that I didn't want to pull out Marcel Desaulniers' "death by chocolate" series. So instead, I picked up a copy of "Hershey's Best-Loved Recipes." I expected them to be fun--but I never expected them to be amazing!
First, the ingredients are inexpensive and easy-to-find. I find it's easy to whip up many of these recipes with what's already in the house. If you really want to make sure, just look through the book for pantry ingredients that show up repeatedly (like sweetened condensed milk, toffee bits, or sweetened flaked coconut, as well as chocolate of course) and be sure to have some on hand. The book of course uses brand names, but it's easy enough to extrapolate to your own favorite brands or store brands. These recipes also tend to be inexpensive because they rely so heavily on simple pantry goods like chocolate chips, flour, and oats.
What truly amazed me, however, is how reliably these recipes come out. They don't just come out looking nice, or tasting good; they come out perfect every time. It's clear to me that these recipes were very thoroughly kitchen-tested. And beyond that, every single thing we've made so far has tasted so good that we simply couldn't keep it around the house! The oatmeal toffee bars were to-die-for. The butterscotch cheesecake bowled us over. In fact, if you care about your weight, I have this piece of advice for you: before you make any recipe from this book, invite a few friends over! Otherwise you'll almost certainly gain some weight.

Have had this compendium of chocolate for a few years now and I can honestly say that this is one book I won't be getting rid of! It contains all the Hershey recipes that you've grown up with, but would take forever to compile on your own. All the recipes are relatively easy and foolproof, and are all festive for any occassion. You can't go wrong adding this little treasure to your library. Enjoy!

Format: Hardcover
For the Chocoholic home cook or chef, this one represents the ultimate find. There's no fooling around with preliminaries here -- the book goes directly to the recipes.

There's little use in listing out particular recipes here since every chocolate dish you've ever heard of is probably in here... plus many more. The work is 384 pages in length (including the nice index and useful conversion chart) and there is typically one recipe per page. Most of the finished dishes are beautifully illustrated.

There are a few simple, essential recipes such as "Creamy Fudge Frosting" (page 49) but most are for more elegant and elaborate baked goods, all of which utilize chocolate in some way. The book is broken down into eight sections:

-- The Cake Collection
-- Cookie Jar Classics
-- Brownies and Bars
-- Dessert Creations
-- The Lighter Side
-- Pleasing Pies and Tarts
-- Tasty Treats
-- Holiday Favorites

This volume comes in hardcover and the pages are of very heavy, slick paper stock. It's a beautuful cookbook (mostly baking) and would make a fine gift.

My only caution is that this cookbook will probably work best for bakers with at least some previous experience and knowledge of the fundamentals. Culinary tips do proliferate the text but such knowledge would be better acquired in a work which is more foundational such as: Joy of Cooking: 75th Anniversary Edition - 2006, or, The America's Test Kitchen Family Baking Book.

In any case, I highly recommend this fine volume for appropriate users.
