Sticky, Gooey, Messy, Chewy Treats for Kids

Sticky, Gooey, Messy, Chewy Treats for KidsIt’s fitting that there is a kids version of the cookbook Sticky, Gooey, Messy, Chewy for kids – because as much as grown-ups like indulgent desserts that fall into one (or all four) of these categories, kids are the ones who really appreciate something a little bit messy. Sticky, Gooey, Messy, Chewy Treats for Kids is a cookbook designed for kids, with recipes that kids will want to eat and make themselves.

The book covers both breakfast and dessert, since they’re the two meals where you’re most likely to find sweet, gooey foods. The recipes included things like Banana Split Pancakes, Chocolate Pudding Cake and Bumblebee Sting Cupcakes. They are divided into three chapters and grouped by topic, breakfast food, holiday food and party/celebration food, though the recipes are easy enough to make on a daily basis. All of the recipes are well-laid out in a traditional cookbook design (unlike some kids books where you have to search a too-colorful page for the list of ingredients!), and the book is spiral-bound to lay flat while you read it. The recipes are made from scratch, so you won’t find things that start with a log of cookie dough, but are well-explained and easy to follow along with.

There are only 30 recipes in the cookbook, but they are varied and that is more than enough for most kids to choose from. It also means that they’re likely to remember the things that they’ve made and want to go back for more. If you needed any more incentive, the photos in the book are outstanding and really make your mouth water.
