70 Homemade Versions of Your Favorite Brand-Name Treats
By Casey Barber
Create all-natural, handcrafted versions of classic favorite treats like chocolatey imitation Oreos, salty home-cooked potato chips, and fluffy DIY Twinkies from a noted copycat chef and food blogger.


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 multi-step 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. Health-conscious adults will finally get to reintroduce their taste buds to childhood joys like splitting open a chocolate sandwich cookie and sampling the creamy happiness of the filling first.


What I love about these books, is that the recipes are often made healthier, just by cooking with your on ingredients at home!  All three of these books are great resources for the home chef.  We have been pretty impressed with the recipes we've tried out so far and can't wait to try out more!

If your Valentine is a foodie, they will love these books!
