Comments: Our problem with this book it its title – these are not the 300 best chocolate recipes. They are 300 recipes that make use of chocolate (weighted toward the use of chocolate chips), with lots of variety. But we would go out on the limb and say these are chocolate recipes to try once you've already got the top 100 or so chocolate recipes under your belt.
The second issue (related to the first) is that this is such an unusual mix of recipes – a buttered baguette with a chunk of chocolate on it is not one of the great chocolate recipes; it is barely a recipe, and certainly does not hold a candle to the French pain au chocolat. Similarly, there are 30 recipes for chocolate cakes, including Chocolate Carrot Cake, Mocha Chocolate Chip Cake, and a date flapjack cake, but no real mainstream chocolate cake.
Recipes fall into a dozen categories, including breakfasts, muffins, cakes, cupcakes, pies, cookies, candies, puddings, frozen desserts, beverages, and more. Their strength is that most of them are quick and easy. A better title would have been 300 Quick and Easy Chocolate Recipes.
