Halloween Treats to Make and Bake is a Halloween cookbook designed for children between the ages of eight and eleven years old. Having said that, however, the recipes are designed to be easy and kid friendly, but not to be made alone by the children; adults need to be present during the preparation of the dishes, since knives are needed, as well as a stove and oven.

There is some important information and cooking tips for kids (and every cook for that matter) that will help to make the recipes that follow turn out successfully. The recipes are written in a format that is very easy-to-understand and includes step-by-step instructions.

The cookbook is very colorful, and includes adorable illustrations as well as beautiful, professional photographs of every recipe. It is actually enjoyable to read, both by adults and children.

This fun book contains only seven recipes. And while they are cute and very apropos for Halloween, it is amazing that something offering so little could actually be published as a book. It isn’t actually a book, rather a small handout in book form. The recipes aren’t particularly innovative or new; similar recipes can be found in every Halloween cookbook out there (books that contain dozens of recipes as opposed to this with so few).

All told, this cookbook really isn’t worth purchasing; the book is overpriced as to what you actually get. Most people will want to purchase a Halloween cookbook with enough recipes that kids can choose from several recipes.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
