"In this age of singles, couples and otherwise smaller households, Small-Batch Baking is an idea that's 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.
There's a dessert in this book for every occasion: a fool-proof birthday chocolate cake recipe, a chocolate orange tart for Valentine's Day, or when you're in the mood for a little self-indulgence, a chocolate soufflé sized for one. Your sweetheart (and your waistline) will thank you!
