Party With Sweet Treats
So when I was out promoting my first book, Sweet Treats for the Holidays, I was putting the finishing touches on my second book!
I can't tell you how many emails and messages that I have received asking for treat ideas for graduation, bridal and baby showers, Mother's Day etc. I really wanted to create everything you wanted and this book was the perfect way to do that!
I had SO MUCH fun creating these new and easy treats, but was on a super tight deadline - 3 months! To say that I was a little stressed is an understatement but as much I as love my first book, I have to say I love this one just as much!
So many fun treats for holidays, special occasions and just for fun! Here's a little rundown:
Chinese New Year
St. Patrick's Day
April Fools' Day
4th of July
Family Game Night
Too many to list but over 60 treats for your sweet celebrations!
Make some cute Panda Snack cakes for Chinese New Year!
Or how about Leprechaun Cupcakes for St. Paddy's Day?
No-bake Snow Cone Cake Pops for the summer!
A sweet little shark pop inspired by Shark Tank's Barbara Corcoran - honored that she endorsed both of my books!
Happy Grad cake pops for your favorite Graduate!
Easy Circus Animal Cupcakes make any birthday special!
Peanut Butter Checkers. SO. GOOD. Seriously.
Twinkie Toes for a sweet baby shower!
And here's a recipe I'll share from my book!
Brownie Grill Bites
A perfect goody for the Grillmaster.
6 Little Brownie Bites (such as Entenmann’s)
1 (.67 oz.) tube of black writing gel
12 red Mike and Ike candies
2 green Mike and Ike candies
2 yellow Mike and Ike candies
2 pink Mike and Ike candies
18 lollipop sticks
½ cup chocolate melted candy coating
12 dark brown M&M’s
1. With the black writing gel, make a circle around the top edge of the brownie bite. Then make grill lines with the writing gel inside of the circle.
2. Using the black edible marker, make little grill marks on the red Mike & Ike candies so they look like hot dogs. Place hot dogs on top of brownie grill.
3. Slice the green, yellow, orange and pink Mike & Ike candies into thirds.
4. Place one sliced Mike & Ike of each color onto a toothpick for the skewer. Place on brownie grill.
5. Cut lollipop sticks into approximately 2” lengths. Push 2 sticks into the bottom of the brownie.
6. Melt chocolate candy coating wafers according to package instructions.
7. Attach the M&M’s to the bottom of the lollipop sticks for wheels using the melted candy coating.

I was blown away when Barbara Corcoran of Shark Tank and Actress Daneel Ackles said they loved my book!

When I first came across Norene’s site Partypinching.com, I thought, this is one talented girl! I didn’t think I could pull off anything that resembled one of her cute food creations.
Imagine my surprise when I was able to recreate a few of her tiny treats for Halloween in about 15 minutes, using ingredients I found at the drugstore/local grocery store.
Party with Sweet Treats, is a magic wand of a book that can turn any novice sweet maker into a master confectioner! Party with Sweet Treats is the GO TO hostess gift!
