Not only does Susie Norris own a business, Happy Chocolates, ($15-$75 for gift sets & boxes of chocolates) where she creates divine confections like the Catwalk Crunch, peanut crisps embedded in dark chocolate and coated with a cheetah-patterned print, and the Mocha By the Sea, a velvety dark chocolate & coffee truffle, but she's also an authoress. Her new book, Chocolate Bliss: Sensuous Recipes, Spa Treatments, and Other Divine Indulgences, ($13) contains recipes for the true chocoholic. After all, chocolate has lots of antioxidants, so why not ingest them in recipes like Breakfast-In-Bed Pound Cake and use them in beauty treatments like the Salty Chocolate Body Scrub. You'll also be treated to an in-depth look at the chemical properties of our favorite nibble, and it's crazy, magical history. A must read for any true chocoholic.
