Ooh, more free stuff!

Okay, so everyone likes free things, right? And those who love to cook know that you can never have enough cookbooks!

I recently received an AMAZING cookbook from Wiley Publishing that is absolutely incredible. The title is Chocolates and Confections, and it's authored by resident experts at the Culinary Institute of America, so it goes well beyond your normal cookbook.

Chocolates and Confections is a gorgeous book, and is positively loaded with great information, tips, and helpful hints. Matter of fact, the first 3 chapters are all about the basics, before getting into some seriously yummy recipes.

Want some recipe titles to wet your whistle? How about:
Green Tea Truffles
Cherry Cordials
Chocolate Covered Confit
Toasted Hazelnut Squares
Peanut Butter Bombs
Lattes Molded Chocolates

If you have any interest in making any sort of candy or confection, this is the book for you! And the best part about this giveaway? I have 2 copies to give away!

There are two easy ways to enter:

The first is simple. Just leave me a comment below with a valid email address to enter the random drawing.

I really want this book. I dream of confections that aren't really viable, such as chocolate covered cherries with a pretzel crust (can you imagine how they'd break apart when you bit in).
