Cook Book Challenge: Week 9 by cakecrumbs Cook Book Challenge: Week 9 by cakecrumbs
Some time ago, my father picked up Family Circle's "Crazy for Chocolate" book for himself. Now, this is a rarity, as most dessert books he buys on his op-shopping expeditions are for me. I didn't see it for the longest time until one weekend he handed it to me to have a look through. He told me it wasn't great, that there was "nothing really decadent in there". It was in this moment my father was classified as certifiably insane. Not is it the greatest chocolate cookbook I have ever seen, it is right up there with my favourite desserts of all time. I want to bake this book from cover to cover, and I probably eventually will. He told me I could have the book, but I think he already knew I was not leaving his house without it.

For the challenge, I baked the Chocolate Shortbread Stacks recipe. You'll find more photos and the recipe here: [link]

Ahh, being sitting here, checking all your photos and amazing bake skills makes me feel so little xD I always thought I could cook, I can make a couple family recipes cakes by myself, but when I see the things you cook.. Ahh, I wish I was that good to make mines similar.

Thanks for such a lovely comment! But don;t ever let my stuff make you feel small! I had no baking ability three years ago. It's all in the practise.
