To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this delightful, fun-filled cookbook for my daughter's Birthday, as she is a true chocolate lover. I have collected several Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, and have never been disappointed. There is a special reason why these authors are bestsellers. This amazing cookbook is the first I've ordered for chocolate recipes, and is wonderful for the holidays, or special occasions. This cookbook is no exception to the rule for Gooseberry Patch, and is as inspiring as all the others. The authors define different types of chocolate as the introduction begins. We learn about Milk Chocolate; Dark Chocolate; Semi-Sweet Chocolate; Melting Chocolate; and Baking Chocolate. There are several mouth-watering recipes offered on: Breakfast; Cakes; Candy; Cookies; Pies; and more. Each recipe includes the number of servings with instructions, and cooking time. In addition, there are cute drawings, gift ideas, helpful tips and the heartwarming story of how Vickie and JoAnn began their business when Gooseberry Patch was born. Some of the recipes are: DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS; CHOCOLATE COCOA; CHOCOLATE-CHIP PANCAKES; which we are making Saturday and several other delicious recipes. There are recipes for: CHOCOLATE CHIP WAFFLES; BANANA CHOCOLATE-CHIP BREAD; CAPPUCCINO COOLER; DELICIOUS TREATS; CARAMEL-FILLED COOKIES; DOUBLE CHOCOLATE BROWNIES; PUMPKIN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES; and many more to select from. We also learn how to make a chocolate gift basket, and other home-made gifts. I will soon be making the MINT CHOCOLATE BROWNIES, and will leave updates with new recipes we make. Of course, we have CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES and CHOCOLATE-RASPBERRY FUDGE on our list. The more you read through this cookbook, the more inspired you become! I will be gifting this book to family and friends for the holidays, as well as making home-made gifts from this awesome book. Fun-filled and wonderful for special occasions. Highly recommended!
