Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Chocolate


Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Chocolate cupcakes covered in chocolate frosting and little white or pink candy hearts. While trying to decide what to blog about for this year’s Valentine’s Day freebie post, I took a look back at the topics I selected for it in previous years: Bookish Romantic Quotes, Conversation Hearts on Book Covers, Helpful Nonfiction Books About Relationships, and Books I Liked About Asexual Characters.

Yeah, so I am not exactly the most romantic person in the world.

What I do like about Valentine’s Day, though, are the chocolates and the sales of leftover Valentine’s Day chocolates that will be happening in about two days.

There is nothing like getting a little package of sweets for 50% off the day after the holiday! They somehow taste just a little better that way if you ask me.

Here are some books about chocolate that would make me hungry.

1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie Bucket, #1) by Roald Dahl

2. The Healthy Chocoholic: Over 60 healthy chocolate recipes free of gluten & dairy by Dawn J. Parker

3. Decadent Cake Ball Recipes: Pretty Little Treats for Many Occasions by April Blomgren

4. Chocolate Wars: The 150-Year Rivalry Between the World’s Greatest Chocolate Makers by Deborah Cadbury

5. Sweet Invention: A History of Dessert by Michael Krondl

6. Chocolate: A Global History by Sarah Moss

7. S’more Cookbook: Tasty Creative S’more Recipes by Stephanie Sharp

8. Best-Ever Book Of Chocolate by Christine McFadden

9. Chocolate-Covered Katie: Over 80 Delicious Recipes That Are Secretly Good for You by Katie Higgins

10. Chocolate Cookbooks for You 50 Valentine Chocolate Recipes Valentine Cookbook by Victoria Braze

11. Vegan Desserts: Make your own vegan desserts at home by Stephanie Sharp

12. Chicken Soup for the Chocolate Lover’s Soul: Indulging Our Sweetest Moments by Mark Victor Hansen

13. Hot Chocolate: Rich and Indulgent Winter Drinks by Hannah Miles

14.The Diabetic Chocolate Cookbook by Mary Jane Finsand

 

Yes, I had more than ten answers this week. This will help to balance out the weeks when I only have four or five answers. That’s how it works, right? Jana combs through all of our posts and averages out how many replies we come up with for her secret database or something? Ha!

  1. Joanne

    Great idea! I enjoyed Chocolat by Joanne Harris.

  2. Great list! I had no idea there were so many good books about chocalates!

  3. Ha, excellent choice of list!

    And somehow no one quite described chocolate as vividly as Roald Dahl did back then…

    My TTT.

  4. Just reading all of these titles has me craving a slice of decadent chocolate cake! I’m drooling, lol 😂 Great list!

  5. I love the discounted February 15th chocolate sales!

  6. Chocolate is always a good topic! Will have to check out that vegan dessert cookbook though. I have one, but two is better when it comes to desserts, right?

    Here is our Top Ten Tuesday.

  7. You can never have too much chocolate!! This post makes me want to indulge.

  8. I think Cormier had a book about chocolate, but I don’t remember it being a cozy read. My list is ‘things in novels I love’, since romance and I are not a happy pair!

  9. Great list! I too love 50% off chocolates

  10. Great list! I will be checking out some of your nonfiction titles from this week. After reading Yummy (a graphic history nonfiction book about the history of desserts) I really want to continue learning the history of some things we take for granted!

    Here’s my TTT this week: https://bookwyrmknits.com/2024/02/13/top-ten-tuesday-quotes-for-galentines-day/

  11. Such a fun topic for today! I think I have some books that somehow surround chocolate (chocolate maker, chocolate on the cover, etc.) that would have fit with the theme today too. But oh well! They are saved for next time we have a similar topic I guess. 🙂 Thanks so much for visiting my website!

  12. And now I just want to eat chocolate! Those titles sound too yummy!

  13. This is a fun topic! Kudos to you from one chocolate lover to another. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier.

  14. Okay! Books about chocolate! Love it!

    Here’s my Top Ten Tuesday.

  15. I can no longer eat chocolate (allergies, sigh), but I agree, the after Valentine’s chocolate is great! This is a good topic with yummy titles for today!

  16. What a great list, I love it!! Now I have to go get some chocolate… Thanks a lot!

  17. I love the twist on the topic! It’s going to make me want chocolate even though it’s breakfast time here haha.

  18. We have done a lot of gluten-free baking, but gluten-free and dairy-free at the same time has got to be difficult!
    I looked through my LibraryThing for chocolate books I’ve read, and found Chocolate-Covered Murder by Leslie Meier (part of a cozy mystery series set in Maine). It’s even got a Valentine’s Day theme!

  19. Great list! I love cookbooks but the only one I know on your list is Chocolate Covered Katie. And of course Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is the all time best book about chocolate. Happy TTT!

  20. Books about chocolate is the PERFECT topic for this week! Now excuse me while I go buy a few more books 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by my Top Ten Tuesday

  21. I love how you leaned into the chocolate side of the holiday! I hope you enjoy your chocolates in the coming days.

  22. Is there anything in the world better than discounted chocolate? This list made me very hungry for something sweet!

  23. I love pretty much all chocolate so I’m loving this topic!

  24. I think this is the best take ever on a Valentine’s day freebie ahah!
    You made me so hungry with all the recipe books, I’ll have to check them out!!

  25. I agree, discounted chocolate is much better!! Love a good chocolate book 🙂

  26. Fun topic!! Oh, wow! It’s been so long since I’ve read a Chicken Soup for.. book! 🙂

  27. Fun Topic! I need to check the Vegan Desserts, sounds amazing

  28. I love this list so much, and I really liked your choice of topic here. I was completely expecting a fun twist on the prompt, and you didn’t let me down! I’m especially impressed that you were able to list so many books about chocolate, since the only one I was able to think of was Chocolat, and that’s only because of the movie. This list is making me seriously crave chocolate, and now I have a bunch of books to refer to, so thank you!

  29. Green & Blacks Ultimate Chocolate Recipe Book.

    It has not just the cakes & biscuits you’d expect, but vegan and savoury foods that draw out everything chocolate has to offer.

    I, though not vegan, had a plant-based hazelnut bar today and it wassublime.

  30. Oh, yum, what a delicious topic! (And now I want chocolate!) I didn’t realize the Diabetic Chocolate Cookbook was a thing, but I definitely need to look into that!
