"Fran's infectious passion for chocolate radiates from these voluptuous yet amazingly approachable recipes. From breakfast smoothies to show-stopping desserts and even nightcaps, Fran finds a way to sneak a little chocolate bliss into every corner of your day. Warning: these hedonistic recipes aren't for the faint of heart! (I admit it. I actually licked page 92.)"
Dynise Balcavage, author of Pies and Tarts with Heart and The Urban Vegan
I am an ardent proponent of clean, unadulterated flavors. Years ago I've eliminated milk and cream from my chocolate cakes to achieve a truer flavor statement. From a culinary standpoint, Fran Costigan demonstrates the same desire for purity. With scientifically-based explanations and the refined palate of a trained pastry-chef, she teaches both amateur and professional cooks how to make amazing desserts without any animal sources. Not only are the recipes safe for the vegan lifestyle and allergy sufferers, they stand on their own as ambrosial desserts.”

Fran Costigan’s stunning new book is a game changer. Vegan Chocolate is a delicious book, filled with clearly written user-friendly recipes, inventive techniques, and practical information. Nothing is missing from these sumptuous chocolate desserts except the dairy, eggs, refined sugar, and cholesterol. With an Opera Cake and a Bûche de Noel, truffles, ice creams, simple cookies, and more, transitioning over to vegan eating has never been more tempting. This book has earned a permanent place in my kitchen!”
Tal Ronnen, New York Times Bestselling author of The Conscious Kitchen
Take a chunk of dark chocolate, a spoonful of sugar, and put it in the pan with Fran, and what you get is a collection of divinely inspired, sophisticated desserts that make me ponder only one thing: which one to make first? Will it be the classic Opera Cake, Mocha Crème Brûlée, or one of the ridiculously tempting truffles? Vegan dessert books may abound, but only Fran Costigan reveals the true meaning of chocolate: it may seem rich, indulgent, and even sinful, but as I dip my finger into a bowl of Chocolate Panna Cotta, I realize it is ever so necessary.”
Miyoko Schinner, author of Artisan Vegan Cheese
