About the Book

It can be difficult to find truly indulgent vegan chocolate —especially desserts. But for the first time, chocolate cakes, brownies, truffles, puddings, ice creams, and more are within reach: dairy-free, organic, fair-trade, and sublime.

Author, baking instructor, and vegan powerhouse Fran Costigan has dedicated years to satisfying her sweet tooth while keeping it vegan. Through experimentation and long hours in the kitchen, she’s recreated some of her favorite chocolate desserts as better-for-you interpretations that pass the taste test: Bittersweet Chocolate Truffles (with a variety of flavor variations), a Brooklyn Blackout Layer Cake, a Sacher Torte, even chocolate Moon Pies! Her detailed instructions make for professional-quality outcomes every time: it’s like a personal baking class, right in your kitchen.

The perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth, Vegan Chocolate is sure to become an instant classic.

"Fran's infectious passion for chocolate radiates from these voluptuous yet amazingly approachable recipes. From breakfast smoothies to show-stopping desserts and even nightcaps, Fran finds a way to sneak a little chocolate bliss into every corner of your day. Warning: these hedonistic recipes aren't for the faint of heart! (I admit it. I actually licked page 92.)"
– –Dynise Balcavage, author of Pies and Tarts with Heart and The Urban Vegan
“When those of us of the grains, beans, and veggies persuasion want to indulge in a sweet treat, it has to be something spectacular—and preferably chocolate! There's no better guide to the world of delectable chocolate desserts than Fran Costigan; that they happen to be egg- and dairy-free is icing on the vegan cake. A feast for all the senses, Vegan Chocolate sets the bar at a new level for home cooks as well as chefs.”
– —Nava Atlas, author of Wild About Greens and Vegan Holiday Kitchen
“Delve in, and Vegan Chocolate becomes a kind of cake itself, prepared to perfection and dense with flavor. Packed with vibrant photos by Kate Lewis, the book itself appeals sensually in addition to its valuable info. Costigan has finally gotten the top-of-the-line packaging her work has always deserved…. This new, sumptuous book is an appropriate summation of more than a decade of sweet-tooth expertise.” —Philadelphia Daily News
