Treat

Banyas, Stephanie. Treat: 50 Recipes For No-Bake Marshmallow Treats. USA: Clarkson Potter/ Publishers. 2015.

SUMMARY:
treatFirst created in 1928 by a team of Home-Ec teachers, Marshmallow Krispie Treats have been a staple at birthday parties, picnics, celebrations and classrooms. In her new book, Treat, author Stephanie Banyas takes those classic treats to an updated level. Along with making the marshmallows, adding creative ingredients, loading the tops, and cutting into designer shapes, Treat also shares tips on ensuring a successful outcome. Yum!

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Not a huge fan myself of the classic marshmallow treats, my family absolutely loves them! As a result, this tasty little book was perfect for us! Full of delectable recipes accompanied by scrumptious pictures, Treat is definitely a book that will have the pages sticky with use. Perfect as a gift or passed along between friends, I will probably purchase several copies to share with each batch of the yummy treats. Such an easy treat made even more interesting yet still simple. Strawberry Lemonade Treats, Peanut Butter Cup Treats, Chocolate Espresso Treats…I think this non-fan may even be tempted! (I wonder if Maraschino Cherry Treats would work?) So clever!!
