If You Have Kids...

If you have kids, you have GOT to find yourself a copy of American Girl's Tiny Treats book.  I found my copy at a thrift store and couldn't resist it. It's a whole booklet of miniature snacks for kids.  Very creative and fun stuff.  

 Here are a couple of my favorites:

Mini donuts:
These are CHEERIOS!  How clever is that?

These mini cakes are frosted Oreos (two stacked):

These are tiny pieces of toast, Tootsie Roll, and white chocolate melted with a yellow M&M

I LOVE these.  Use the rind from a lime as a mold and pour in red Jello

There are so many other really cool ideas.  Like I said, if you have kids, you totally need to get a copy of this book.

My kids love American Doll. There is one up in L.A. we visit. I'll have to remember these treats. The oreo mini cakes are cool and something I would eat!

Those are SO neat! I was a huge fan of american girls back when they only had the four dolls available. I had Kierstan, my sister got Samantha, and my littlest sister had Molly. I was so sad to see that the original dolls aren't even available anymore! poo on that! I'm hoping to get my daughtes interested in them eventually. I know they'd love those mini treats! how cute!

Mini anything is too time consuming for the short pleasure. You make extra and we'll call it even. LOL

What a great book! They are super tiny. I'm glad it's for kids because I like my desserts super-sized.
