Diana Dalsass has created over 100 original recipes, testing each one over and over again to preserve the integrity of the original dessert while making an entirely new chocolate sensation. Pies, pastries, puddings, cakes, cookies, and even coffee cakes, muffins, and breads are reinvented and made startlingly fresh and delicious by the addition of that magical ingredient, chocolate. Dalsass has created simple, easy-to-follow recipes that will not tax your time or energy. She draws on classic American desserts, including Key Lime Pie, Indian Pudding, and Boston Cream Pie, as well as luscious European favorites like eclairs, Zuppa Inglese, and Madeleines. With such intriguingly unusual concoctions as chocolate zabaglione and Baked Alaska, this unique cookbook opens up worlds of scrumptious possibilities. New Chocolate Classics will soothe the craving of the most hardened chocoholic while opening up new horizons for any lover of dessert.
