"Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids" and I'm going to review it using the three recipes I tried from it as well as general information about it. Your orders help The Chocolate Cult try new products and restaurants.
First thing to note about this book is that it is not made for kids to cook with. The title is bit misleading on this and I was confused, Sisters and Brothers, because the recipes I tried all took a good deal of time to make plus they assumed you knew about how some things should look as an experienced cook. Instead the "kids" on the cover are those who will like to eat or drink these often messy looking and mess-making products.
Ultimately the treats were indeed messy to make and to eat. I loved the design of the book itself, but I think the three recipes I tried could have used more directions and less time spent on catchy thoughts at the top and bottom of the pages. The pictures are beautiful but even sketches of some of the more complicated steps would be very useful to the newer or less experienced chocolatier. Finally all three of these recipes took so much time that I'm perplexed about when a mom or dad with kids to get ready in the morning would find time to make them. I think you'd need your partner to keep the kids busy while you make these sticky, gooey items.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
