Classic Snacks made from scratch cookbook review

Book Info:
Everyone has a guilty pleasure — a couple of Nutter Butter® cookies after lunch, Cheetos® while watching sports on TV, or maybe a poolside Fudgesicle® on a hot summer day. And who’s to judge? There’s nothing wrong with a little indulgence! Except that brand-name snacks are often packed with unhealthy preservatives, unnatural colorings, and unwanted chemicals. This book answers the junk food dilemma by serving up recipes for delicious versions of everyone’s favorite nostalgic treats using high-quality, all-natural ingredients. All the recipes promise to faithfully reproducing beloved snacks and vending machine treats in a home kitchen using unprocessed ingredients like real cream, rich butter, and freshly ground spices. Not surprisingly, the resulting delights far surpass the flavor of the originals. With 70 recipes ranging from quick and easy Wheat Thins® to multistep wonders like hot-out-of-the-toaster, fruit-filled Pop-Tarts®, Classic Snacks Made from Scratch will appeal to everyone who craves delicious treats with more flavor and less guilt.

My Opinion:
What is there not to love. I mean yummy treats you grew up eating like pop-tarts  oreos, Twinkies  etc all made from scratch. We made the chocolate entenmann's donuts. It was really easy to make and tasted delicious. We had a little trouble keeping the donut shape so we ended up making donut holes but they were fabulous. The kids loved them! This is definitely a fun cookbook that your family will absolutely love. You should definitely check it out! Head over to Ulysses Press to get this great cookbook and some of the others as well.
