Chocolate Books

Since s'mores and chocolate were mentioned by visitors in the comment section of my Marshmallow Books blog post (, I thought it only fitting to do a blog post about books with the word chocolate in them.  

There are a LOT of books with the word chocolate in them, so this is only a tiny sampling of what you might find at your local library or bookstore.

  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
  • Chocolate Fever by Robert Kimmel Smith
  • The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Skene Catling
  • A Chocolate Moose for Dinner by Fred Gwynne
  • The Chocolate-Covered-Cookie Tantrum by Deborah Blumenthal
  • Max's Chocolate Chicken by Rosemary Wells
  • The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar Fractions Book by Jerry Pallotta
  • Max & Maddy and the Chocolate Money Mystery by Alexander McCall Smith
At least in this summer heat, these sweet treats won't melt in your hands!

Can I make a plea to include 'Chocolat' by Joanne Harris in here please Suzanne?

I know it's missing the final 'e', but it's such a great book and full of delicious morsels :-P

Susanne Drazic said...

Sure, why not. You've added it by mentioning it!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Ah, much better than the marshmellow post. Nothing against marshmellow. But they have to have chocolate. Not sure about choclate chicken though.

I work in a library and I know we have several of the books you've listed here. We may have them all, but I don't have the entire cataloq memorized just yet. ;)

Jane Kennedy Sutton said...

This post makes me want to go raid my kitchen in search of chocolate!)

Jennifer Shirk said...

Mmm....chocolate. And no calories. LOL

Corey Schwartz said...

Okay, it's not for kids, but... Like Water for Chocolate is a great book (and film)

Hi Stephen, a chocolate chicken would be fun to read about. I like the Max and Ruby books. Once in awhile I'll even watch an episode of Max and Ruby on TV. Of course my teenager thinks I'm weird. : )

Hi Julie, thanks for stopping by and commenting. The kids book section of the library was busy the other day, so I didn't get a chance to browse the shelves.

Hi Jane. I found a stash of chocolate in the freezer that I had forgotten about. Obviously my family forgot about it too. : ) Think I'll have to make some chocolate chunk cookies or some chocolate bread.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi Jennifer, thanks for stopping by. Reading a book about chocolate is the only way I've found to get a "tasty" dose without the calories!
: )

Of course reading about chocolate won't replace eating chocolate, but my waistline is the better for it.

Have a great day!

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi Corey, I've not heard of that book, but it has the word chocolate in it, so it has to be good!
: )

Janet Johnson said...

Sounds like some yummy books! You've got me drooling in more ways than one. :)

Jack Foster said...

Sweeeet post Susanne! Love your blog, so full of fun and inspiration. Looking forward to "s'more" entertaining posts.

Hi Janet. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Haven't had a chance to make the chocolate chunk cookies or chocolate bread yet. I made banana bread and zucchini bread for hospitality at church today.

That chocolate has been calling to me all afternoon!

Have a great week!

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi Jack, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'm so glad that you like my blog!

I checked out your blogs and will be sure to stop by and check them out from time to time.

Have a great week!

We just finished reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. There's no chocolate in the title, but chocolate is all over the book as the best cure to warm you after a dementor attack. Had to go buy Hershey Bars today...

Susanne Drazic said...

That's right! I had forgotten that tasty tidbit about the book.

That would have made a good trivia question about the Harry Potter books.

Thanks for sharing!

You know when I was a teacher I loved reading books that involved food and then doing an activity with the kids after we finished reading them. :) (Of course, I could always come up with some kind of project to go with any book...)

Susanne Drazic said...

Kids seem to like books that are about food. One my son liked when he was younger was called Food Fright. I don't remember the author. I'll have to look it up. A pair of 3D glasses came with the book, so it was like you were a part of the book. Pretty cool!
