About Chocolate Making Adventures

From cocoa bean to mouth-watering treats...

Make your own chocolate at home.

Most recipes for homemade chocolate involve buying it from the shop then melting it. But what if it’s actual chocolate itself that you want to make?

Thanks to the recent widespread availability of cocoa beans and cocoa butter, chocolate-making has never been easier. You can create it on an ordinary kitchen stove.

Learn to make different kinds of chocolate, then mould it into bars, sweets and even build with chocolate bricks, as you follow Rosen’s quest to become a home chocolatier.

100 pages packed with recipes and tips by chocolate enthusiast Rosen Trevithick and featuring beautiful photographs by Claire Wilson of Live, Life, Explore.

Chocolate Making Adventures Early Reviews

Two chocolate testers have posted the first reviews of Chocolate Making Adventures. The title is my debut cookbook, which is set to be released later this week.

The first is by Kath Middleton, from Ignite Books, who gives it five stars.

Kath received an early draft of the book and quickly learnt to create stunning chocolate, which she's been sharing around her neighbourhood, causing good tempered rifts between different factions.

She describes the ease of chocolate making:

"I began tentatively, not sure if what I was being asked to do would produce anything I fancied eating. All I can say is - go with it. The business of spreading the ingredients, vigorous mixing and re-melting sounds like a faff but it's quicker and less messy than making scones."

Kath also praised the photographs:

"I'm buying the paperback too, as soon as it's available, because the photos are just too gorgeous and too colourful to hide away on a kindle."

The photographs found in the book are by Claire Wilson from LLE Photography. Each photo is a work of art.

Joo from Joo's Book Reviews and Interviews also received recipes before the book was complete, and quickly became addicted. I have it on good authority that she wowed people at a KUF social gathering, with plain and milk chocolates.

She also awarded the book five stars. Her review begins:

"I was told this is one of the only books to show you how to easily make your own chocolate from raw ingredients. I didn't really believe it, but on having a look online, it's true, there is very little information on actually making your own chocolate."
