Miniature sweet treats


Looking for something fun to do with the kids this summer?  How about miniature sweet treats!  Kids love anything tiny.  And actually, so do I!  I used to collect miniatures for my dollhouse when I was younger.  I never did "play" with the dollhouse, but I was always creating little miniatures and decorating the house.  I guess that is why I have such a passion today for decorating my real home.  The recipes are from an American Girl magazine and book called Tiny Treats.  You can pick up a copy here or here, but I'll tell you how to make my favorite little treats from the book.  They are super easy.

* The little ice cream cones are actually corn shaped snacks.  You use a melon baller to form tiny scoops of ice cream.

*All you need for the little kiss cookies are peanut butter cookie dough, sugar, and chocolate chips.  Simply preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Roll a marble sized piece of refrigerated dough in sugar. Bake 6 minutes.  Top each one with a chocolate chip!

*For the little cutie cakes, you will need two chocolate sandwich cookies for each one~like oreos. Use a butter knife to spread frosting on one side.  Lay the second cookie on top of the frosted side.  Frost the top and sides of the stack.  (Optional: crush a walnut with the back of a spoon and sprinkle around the edge.)

*Small S'mores~ You will need mini marshmallows, graham flavored cereal squares, and chocolate chips.  Layer them like real s'mores and heat in microwave for 8-10 seconds.

We will be doing this as part of a little girl's church activity in a few weeks.  Sounds fun, right? :)


  1. Those are darling & oh-so-cute ideas! I wish American Girl had those cookbooks when I was little!
