“…In the year 2001, chocolate consumption in this country was more than three billion pounds. And for you, fellow chocolate lovers, I’ve created these recipes with as much deep, dark chocolate as possible. And you don’t need previous experience making desserts or working with chocolate—I am totally confident that you can make these luscious chocolate desserts with ease.” – From the deck
For those of us who consume chocolate at the rate of Emperor Montezuma, The Chocolate Deck is a wonderful treat! This 50-card deck features a full-color picture of the dish one side of the card and an easy-to-follow recipe on the other.
Some of the luscious recipes you’ll find in this deck include:
•Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies
•Quickest, Easiest Chocolate Mousse Pie
•Chocolate Refrigerator Roll
•Dark Chocolate Tart
•Mexican-Style Hot Chocolate For Adults
•Grilled Chocolate-Stuffed Bananas
•Buttery Chocolate Wafers
•Bittersweet Hot Chocolate Soufflé
•Chocolate Panna Cotta
•Chocolate Whipped Cream
The Chocolate Deck comes with a 4-part fold-out that lists the recipes in numerical order, as well as describes the different forms of chocolate, necessary recipes (that aren’t on the cards), a short history of chocolate, and how chocolate goes from cacao to the final product.
The cards measure approximately 5.5 x 3.75 inches and come in an attractive, sturdy box. The top comes off easily, providing easy access to the deck, and the box can stand upright.
The full-color photos make my mouth water! My only complaint with this deck is that a few of the pictures repeat. However, considering the tempting recipes in The Chocolate Deck, this is a minor criticism!
If you love chocolate or know someone who does, these cards would make a wonderful alternative to a bulky cookbook!
