Cook up some doll-sized treats

January 8, 2010 at 11:27 pm

Tiny Treats by Julia A. Monroe; published by Pleasant Company Publications (American Girl), Middleton, WI; 2006.

What a sweet cookbook, of sorts.  The “recipes” predominantly repurpose other foods, particularly candies, into little treats for girls and their dolls.  For example, Cheerios are dipped in melted chocolate then topped with powdered sugar or tiny sprinkles and Presto! Mini donuts.  Or a lime is hollowed out and filled with red Jell-o and Voila! Watermelon.

I would use this book as a resource for a program for children and their dolls or stuffed animals or I’d include it in a box/kit as a resource for things to do with an American Girl doll (as a tie in with a movie, perhaps).
