Chocolate-CookbooksEvery chocolate lover will appreciate chocolate cookbooks. Whether you’re planning a party or cooking for the family, chocolate desserts are always welcome. Trying out new ideas and recipes is a fun thing for cooks and chocolate lovers alike. Frankly, I can never have too many ideas for great recipes.

Best Chocolate Cookbooks

My own cookbook shelf has plenty of chocolate cookbooks. I regularly reach for them when making a dessert. But, I’m usually on the lookout for new ones. Great chefs are always trying out new recipes, then publishing them in a collection cookbook. That’s great news for us home chefs.

Since I started looking for additional chocolate cookbooks to try out, I’ve been finding a number of good ones. Ok, some not so good, but featured here are the good ones.

Ghirardelli Chocolate Cookbook

How can we go wrong with a great cookbook from the premier chocolatier? This is a new version of the original. But new things are included. Of course, more than 80 great recipes and lots of beautiful color photos to entice you. But, they also include a great section on making chocolate gifts. Things like homemade cocoa mixes and decadent fudge sauce.

The Ghiradelli Chocolate Cookbook makes a great gift as well. It’s a gorgeous book that will look as good in your kitchen cookbook shelf as on your coffee table.

Absolutely Chocolate

This is a chocolate cookbook I adore. The title tells it all. Absolutely Chocolate: Irresistible Excuses to Indulge. The authors are from Fine Cooking Magazine so you know you’re getting some great stuff here.

It’s an amazing collection of 125 recipes, but includes so much more. The tips and techniques include things like how to taste chocolate and how to get the best results with your chocolate chip cookies. Oh, yes, gorgeous mouth-watering photos are included.

Vegan Chocolate Cookbook – Dairy Free

Author Fran Costigan has created some of the most decadent recipes I have ever tasted. For those of you who prefer vegan chocolate or need dairy-free dessert recipes, she has you covered. The recipes in this chocolate cookbook will have you running to the kitchen to try them out.

Another great gift idea for home cooks, vegans and those who just love chocolate. This is a sumptuous book with decadent photos to go along with the great vegan chocolate recipes.

All of us who love chocolate and understand it’s health benefits as well, will certainly enjoy adding a new chocolate cookbook to our kitchens.

    All of these chocolate cookbooks sound wonderful and definitely appeal to the chocoholic in me. I am especially intrigued by the Vegan Chocolate cookbook! That is one I need to order now so I can be ready for the upcoming holidays. We have several vegans in the family and I find that to be my greatest challenge.
