I’m so impressed with the familiar recipes in this cookbook.  Here is a list of some of them:  Nutter Butters, Oreos, Mint Milanos, Graham Crackers, Entenmann’s Donuts, Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes, Twinkies, Devil Dogs, Cheez-Its, Goldfish Crackers, Nacho and Cool Ranch Doritos, Cheetos, Wheat Thins, Klondike Bars, Strawberry Fruit Roll-Ups, Sour Patch Kids, Peeps, Fig Newtons, Hostess/Drake’s Cherry Pie, Strawberry Pop-Tarts, Table Talk Lemon Pie, Tater Tots, French Onion Dip, and Pimento Spread.

The photos in this book are mouthwatering!  If that list didn’t get your attention, check out some of the photos/recipes in this cookbook!






Strawberry Pop Tarts






McDonald’s Apple Pie





I made two recipes from this cookbook so far.



These Nutter Butter cookies taste just like the store bought version!  The only difference is that the peanut butter filling is  more creamy.  I shared them with my colleagues at work and they loved them.  I will be making these again!



I never made crackers before, so I had to try the Cheez-Its.  I can’t believe how easy they are to make!  They came out great! The only difference is that they have a stronger sharp cheddar taste.
I highly recommend this cookbook.  It is so much fun to recreate my favorite store bought snacks!  The directions are super easy and I am impressed with what I have made so far.

    I would love to learn how to make the gold fish! This is one of my children’s absolute favorite go to! Although all of the treats look like something I would LOVE to try! I would even do a blog as I tried out each one!!!

  2. Misty Sedehi says

    I would love to make the goldfish crackers! My kids go nuts over those little fish, but I am really trying to stay away from packaged food!

  3. Stacy says

    OMG, there are so many of these recipes I want to make. The Goldfish are just adorable, and the Nutter Butters are my faves!

  4. Tammy says

    TWINKIES!!! I cried a river of tears when my FAVS were shut down. Also, the gold fish. What an AMAZING book of timeless recipes!!!!

  5. Lisa says

    Definitely the cupcakes on the cover. I had these all the time growing up! My daughters love pop-tarts and it would be fun to make them together.

  6. Penelope says

    I would love to make the homemade Cheez-Its! They may not be health food, but anything made with real ingredients is better than preservative-filled stuff! Sour Patch Kids, too!!!

  7. Carmen says

    I want to try goldfish crackers (tried another recipe had success once but failure another) – and Nutter Butter cookies
