A cream-filled chocolate cupcake for dessert. Caramel popcorn while watching a movie. An ice cream sandwich on a hot summer day. What could be better than indulging in your favorite guilty pleasures? Having the fun and satisfaction of making them yourself with all-natural ingredients so they taste more delicious than the brand-name originals. This book faithfully reproduces beloved snacks and nostalgic vending machine classics, like:

•Nutter Butters®
•Nacho Cheese Doritos®
•Klondike® Bars
•Animals Crackers
•Sour Patch™ Kids
•Cinnamon Pop Tarts®

Wouldn’t it be nice if junk food wasn’t full of junk? This book answers that dilemma by serving up recipes for delicious, preservative-free treats made with the good, old-fashioned ingredients—flour, sugar and butter. With 70 scrumptiously salty and sweet recipes, plus mouth-watering full-color photos, this book shows you how you can have your childhood cake and eat it too. And don’t forget to share your original creations. Whether it’s for a kid’s birthday party, a movie night with the family or a fun night with friends, the recipes in this book are fun for all occasions.
