    The line brownies are very good, despite sounding weird.

Publishers Text

From the creators of Chocolate Bar, New York City's candy store for grown-ups, comes Chocolate Bar--a delicious ode to the sweet that entrances so many, with more than 30 recipes from such stellar chocolatiers as Jacques Torres and Andrew Shotts.

These range from classic cookies, brownies, and retro desserts to such renegade treats as White Chocolate Lemon Cream, Spiced Meatballs...even a chocolate body scrub! Co- founders Lewis and Nelson espouse a stylish philosophy of fun and enjoyment, with the focus on baking, drinking, dining, and entertaining with chocolate.

They also explain how to educate one's chocolate palate by exploring products with various cacao percentages, origins, textures, aromas, and tastes.

Readers will learn how to throw a chocolate tasting party, a swank chocolate martini soiree, a ski lodge get-together complete with chocolate fondue and hot toddies, or a celebration of childhood choco-centric memories, with the emphasis on sundaes, fudges, ice creams, and other nostalgic indulgences. Using Chocolate Bar's own unique entertaining and party ideas, they explain why chocolate is appropriate--indeed, necessary--for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
