Publisher Comments:

“In this age of singles, couples and otherwise smaller households, Small-Batch Baking is an idea thats in step with the times.”—The Dallas Morning News

No one can resist the allure of home-made chocolate desserts—but when recipes yield a full dozen or more, we often eat more than our serving size. In Small-Batch Baking for Chocolate Lovers, acclaimed food writer Debby Maugans solves the problem by crafting irresistible chocolate recipes perfectly suited for two.

Featuring more than 120 cookie, cake, pie, tart, muffin, and scone recipes, over-the-top and lavishly loaded with chocolate of all kinds, nuts, candy bars, and flavors. Ideal for the single guy or gal, small family, retiree, or bride-to-be.

Theres a dessert in this book for every occasion: a fool-proof birthday chocolate cake recipe, a chocolate orange tart for Valentines Day, or when youre in the mood for a little self-indulgence, a chocolate soufflé sized for one. Your sweetheart (and your waistline) will thank you!

Review:

"Scones for two? A batch of eight cookies? Three brownies hot out of the oven? These tiny yields are the norm for recipes in Maugans's second Small-Batch Baking title. 'Scaled back to manageable proportions,' recipes produce handfuls of baked goods, ideal for the single person, those counting calories, or must-eat-fresh-out-of-the-oven die-hard bakers. The self-proclaimed 'chocoholic' uses the cacao bean in various forms including unsweetened cocoa powder, milk chocolate bars, bittersweet chocolate chips, and even chocolate milk in her recipes for cakes, pies and tarts, and more. Clever ideas include baking 'baby-layer' cakes in cans and making soufflés in eight-inch ramekins. Classic desserts such as red velvet cake and chocolate chip cookies are alongside less-than-traditional combinations including chocolate lime bread and java choco-banana muffins. A lack of photography may prevent gift buyers scanning the shelves from noticing, but chocolate lovers and those who want small yields will appreciate this straightforward title. (Feb.)"
