Product Description

Amazon Review

Simply Cadbury's Chocolate contains one hundred deserts dedicated to, or at least influenced by, this sumptuous ingredient. Cadbury's chocolate is synonymous with rich, indulgent, if unsophisticated pleasure, and many of these recipes are along similar lines. Its instant appeal will be to the seriously sweet toothed and they will not be disappointed with recipes such as "Fudge Cheesecake", "Chocolate Fudge Ring" and "Chocolate Truffle Gateau".

Though the appeal of this book is the Cadbury's chocolate association, manyof the recipes do aspire to something more sophisticated than perhapsexpected. The potential sickliness of the chocolate is wisely tempered by additions such as fruit, nuts and even alcohol. The net result of this is recipes along the lines of a frozen "Chocolate Prune Marquise", "Chocolate Walnut Biscotti" and "Banana, Chocolate and Pecan Cake", all of which use more adult ingredients, be they whisky, marscapone, rose water or almonds.

All the recipes are simple and require just a few precise ingredients--many are suitable for children. Desserts are classified between Teabreads, Quick Cakes, Biscuits and Cookies, Iced Desserts and Hot Puddings. The layout is straightforward and about a third of the recipes are accompanied by colour photos.

Although not exclusively for the chocoholic, the appeal of Simply Cadbury's Chocolate is largely down to the childish appeal of that lovely ingredient. The "Chocolate Prune Marquise", despite some great ingredients really wouldn't have the same appeal were it not for the inclusion of that seductive 'C' word. --Rachel O'Connor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I bought this item for myself a couple of years ago and have enjoyed makng some of the recipes with my 4 year old daughter. I bought this one as a Christmas present for a friend who loves chocolate (don't we all?!) It's hard to decide which one to make next, however, when I made the Easter Torte for my Husband's birthday, which was on Good Fiday, it went slightly wrong. The whole thing sank but it was delicious!!!

It has some very good ideas but just a couple of bits I would have preferred - mainly I like to see what the finished article should look like, for my own peace of mind more than anything else. There are a lot of just plain script no pictures, which is the only reason it doesn't get a 5.

Cadbury's chocolate is the best selling brand in the UK, and my personal favourite! So I was really looking forward to trying these new recipes, as I hate baking with standard cooking chocolate as it is to oily.

There is a good variety of recipes within the book including; iced desserts, hot puddings, biscuits/cookies and cakes. The difficulty of the desserts are also varied, with simpler recipes for a beginner and also larger challenges for the more experienced baker.

The big downside of the book for me was that 95% of the recipes use Bournville chocolate. This is a dark chocolate, and is quite bitter, so will not be to everyone's taste. I have made three of the recipes with the dark chocolate so far, and I have to say they weren't sweet enough for me. I think I'm going to have to mark the few recipes that use dairy milk and stick to making them, as I prefer a much sweeter, smoother chocolate.

I would also have like to see more pictures in the book, as I don't like not knowing if my finished product looks as it should

Overall, probably a book for dark chocolate lovers rather than milk chocolate fans.

I came across this book in a charity shop at an extremely good price so I decided to give it a go. I love to read cook books from cover to cover and I haven't so far tried out any recipe but here are my comments so far, which I will update when I try out some recipes! My first concern is that the book doesn't have many photos and we are now used to always see a photo of each recipe, that made me take out one star right away. For the rest I think that this is a very good book, with recipes for everybody (as long as you like chocolate, of course!). One thing I didn't like, is the fact that they imply that we live our lives nowadays counting calories. Of course this madness is the norm for a lot of people, unfortunately, but there is still a large part of the population who has a healthy relationship with food! There are many recipes from biscuits to chocolate bars, to ice creams and cakes. I think that I will try most of them. At the beginning of the book there is a short story of Chocolate and some techniques. Although there are countless books with chocolate recipes the ones contained in this book are quite different and that is great because we don't to fill our bookshelves with loads of repeated recipes! All in all worth buying! It would have been nice to have some truffle or filled chocolate recipes but ok, all the recipes seem to be so nice that this is not really a problem!

Love chocolate, love this book, I've tried a few of the recipes and up to now they've all been successful, our favourite up to now is the very chunky chocolate brownies, they are to die for, the book is worth getting for this recipe alone.

I ordered this book for a chocoholic friend that isn't very great at baking to inspire her to do something with her favorite sweet. I'm hoping she puts it to use and doesn't burn her chocolate in the kitchen anymore. I checked out the book before handing it over, since I didn't gift wrap it or order it in such. It seems to have varied, clear recipies, so it should have something for everyone or a lot for someone. I'm personally not extremely fond of chocolate, and I considered purchasing the book for myself as well! I recommend this for friends of chocolate.
