Candy Treasure Chest Recipe + Dessert Designer Prize Package Giveaway

My first thought about Dessert Designer: Creations You Can Make and Eat! was awe look how cut and fun the activities {and recipes} are. Then once I really got into the book, I realized how simple most were to recreate. Of course I have never been one to make picture perfect ideas come to life but that is not from a lack of trying. Take the Treasure Chest my daughter {age 8} decided was the one we just had to make. It looks pretty good for my first go at it and well the ingredients are O-SO yummy!


  • chocolate and yellow candy melting wafers
  • 6 bars of crisp wafers in chocolate
  • banana shaped candies
  • gold wrapped chocolate candies
  • candy necklaces
  • candy-coated chocolates

Try this recipe and more with Dessert Designer: Creations You Can Make and Eat! (Capstone Young Readers: Dessert Designer)!

KitKat Treasure Chest

There were so many cool ideas within the pages of Dessert Designer. Lollipop Disco Ball {yeah – talk about a blast from the past with a sweet after taste}, Earth Bead Bracelets {make sure to keep an eye out as this one comes to life at Mom to Bed by 8 for Earth Day} and my personal favorite the Fooled You PB&J {great treat for April Fools day}.

Even better is the variety you will find with this collection of unique ideas. Most creations would work well for both adult and child parties themes. Hosting an OZ party? Go for the Clear Sky Rainbows Cookies. Dads gather your children in the kitchen and make mom a Aloha Lie Cupcake for mother’s day. Attending or planning a wedding? Use the Tipsy Flower Tower as the centerpiece for your bridal shower luncheon.

    I love your idea of making my own recipe book. I don’t cook much any more, but I do love my cookbooks and this would be a great way to pass on some of my favorite dishes. Thanks so much for the great idea!

  2. Wanda Tracey says

    THank you for hosting this great enjoyed the recipes that you shared and am planninto try some of them.You are amazing for liking to cook and bake.

  3. Mikki Cross says

    What a clever idea. My kids would love this. An alternate to the Easter Basket. This is so different and shows the time you put into it as opposed to the time you spent looking & paying for an expensive basket without having choices as to what favorite treat your child likes.
