Summary

SWEETS & TREATS is a treasure trove of ideas for the fun parent. Whether it’s for a special occasion or a festive after school snack, kids will be dazzled by Homemade Twix Bars, Circus Animal Truffles, Samoa Cupcakes, or Churro Chex Mix! Rock the school bake sales with spins on the classics —from Reese’s Brownies to Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies. And the recipes are so easy that kids can even bake along!

For party time, after dinner, or even just some well-deserved self-indulgence , SWEETS & TREATS is filled to the brim with cakes, pies, and other swoon-worthy delights like Brownie Caramel Cheesecake, Mini Pumpkin Pies, Berries and Cream Trifle, or perfect raspberry sorbet. This book features classic recipes derived from the Six Sisters’ family heritage (like their Fresh Peach Pie!) alongside innovative creations (Peanut Butter Brownie Buckeye Cupcakes, any­one?), that will give you options for easy entertaining.

Also included are these magnificent delights:
Hot Fudge Sundae Ice Cream Cake
Microwave Caramels

Every recipe is accompanied by a colorful photo and there are lots of whimsical sidebars throughout the book that offer great family activities, tricks for parties, crafts, and even ideas for cute, easy date nights.

My Review

SWEETS & TREATS WITH SIX SISTERS' STUFF is like looking at all those yummy Pinterest desserts, but collected all in one place. It was full of fabulous pictures, lots of yummy recipes, and a little fun added up to an enjoyable cookbook. Most categories of desserts are just about represented, including: bars, brownies, cookies, cakes, cupcakes, cheeseacake, ice cream, sweet bites (bite-sized treats), pies, and no-bake treats. Then there are these fun ideas and traditions inserted between each dessert category that added a lot to this book, such as "6 Ways to Package Treats," a kids' desserts section, and fondue to name a few.

Brownie Caramel Cheesecake
There are still several recipes we hope to try, such as Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Blondies, Marshmallow Blondies, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownies, S'mores Cookie Cups, Peanut Butter Butterfinger Cookies, Lemon Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream, Hot Fudge Sundae Ice Cream Cake, and I could go on and on... We also would like to make the Sopapilla Pumpkin Cheesecake Squares, but I wasn't sure about the recipe calling for pre-made crescent roll dough, so I'm curious how that will turn out. 

Slab Apple Pie
We tried the Brownie Caramel Cheesecake and the Slab Apple Pie (fabulous idea to feed more people!) for Thanksgiving dessert and enjoyed them both. I loved that each recipe included a picture and that the recipes were easy to follow. And did I say they all looked yummy? Yep. They did.

Overall, this was a really fun dessert cookbook and one we plan on continuing to try out and use in the coming months. There are definitely some recipes that would be perfect for the upcoming holidays.

After growing up in a close-knit family in Utah, the sisters scattered across the country when they went off to college, got married, and had kids. To keep in touch, they started the Six Sis­ters’ Stuff blog, which (much to their surprise!) attracted a massive following. Today, SixSis­tersStuff.com is an Internet sensation filled with recipes, meal planners, DIY projects, and more!

At the core of the Six Sisters’ brand are home-grown values: a devotion to family, love, and togetherness. And delicious, lovingly prepared food, of course!
