Let’s get right down to it: Gluten Free Classic Snacks is about to have its day in the sun. Next Tuesday, April 7, 2015 is its official publication date. That’s the date that my latest labor of cookbook love is officially for sale everywhere books are sold in the United States. To celebrate, I’d like to do two things:

  1. A quick giveaway of one of TWO signed copies of Gluten Free Classic Snacks.* All you have to do is comment on this blog post to enter (no Facebook, Twitter or email entries please!). Be sure you sign in to the comment system with some sort of email address. If I can’t get in touch with you, you can’t win! Giveaway to close Sunday night, April 5, 2015. Like, before I go to bed o’clock, EDT.
  2. Reprint a recipe straight from Gluten Free Classic Snacks right here on the blog—and I’d like you to choose which one! Below are photos from 9 of my favorite recipes in the new book. The name of each recipe is below the photo. Please include your favorite recipe of the bunch in your comment, and the recipe that gets the most “votes” is the one I’ll publish on the blog on April 7. To wish us all a happy Classic Snacks pub date. Sound good?

*Note: Giveaway open only to residents of the U.S. and Canada, as I’m paying for it myself! So sorry!

Here are your choices *drumroll please*:

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Ferrero Rocher-style candies

Should the reprinted recipe be for these Ferrero Rocher-Style Fine Hazelnut Chocolates?

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Hostess-style Chocolate Cupcakes

Maybe the snack you miss the most is good old Hostess-Style Chocolate Cupcakes.

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Little Debbie-Style Cosmic Brownies

Or Little Debbie-Style Cosmic Brownies.

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies

I know you’ve been missing Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies. Amiright??

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Oreo-Style Chocolate Sandwich Cookies (and Golden Oreo-Style Cookies, too!)

Oreo-Style Sandwich Cookies, Chocolate—or Golden. Maybe one of those is your fave? They are made for dunking in an ice cold glass of milk…

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Pop Tart-Style Strawberry Frosted Toaster Pastries

Maybe you’re dying to make Kellogg’s-Style Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts Toaster Pastries. With just the right pale pastry, begging for the toaster.

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Twix-Style Caramel Cookie Candies

Twix-Style Caramel Cookie Bars are, of course, on the list. To leave them off would be madness.

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Weight Watchers-Style Chocolate Chip Brownies

Maybe you didn’t even remember how much you missed Weight Watchers-Style Chocolate Brownies (just 3 PointsPlus per brownie!). Until you saw them again in this gorgeous photo (one of my absolute favorites from the shoot!).

Gluten Free Classic Snacks: Gluten Free Whopper-Style Malted Milk Balls

Finally (and they said it couldn’t be done), Whoppers-Style Original Malted Milk Balls. Now, malt is a big gluten-free no-no (made from barley!), but you won’t miss it in these amazing little candies. Say the word, and the recipe will be on the blog next week!

Have another favorite you saw in the Gluten Free Classic Snacks Table of Contents? Write-in “votes” accepted!

Get commenting and enter for a chance to win one of two signed copies of the book. Remember—contest ends Sunday night, April 5, 2015. Good luck!

  • Nora McCarville

    Oreo cookies. Love your other books.

  • millerwl

    The only comment is YUM!!!

    I’m hoping to see the Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies recipe on the blog. The super moist cookie and fluffy cream was the most awesome lunchbox snack ever!!!

  • Beth

    I’d love the twix!

  • Becca

    Oh, Twix, please! That was my favorite candy pre-diagnosis.

  • Karla

    Congrats on your book! And ooh, all those goodies look delicious. I DO love chocolate, and Twix was always a favorite, but it looks like there might be a few steps of pouring and waiting and I’d be too impatient. How about the cosmic brownies? Those look awesome and easy.

  • Beth McDonald

    Oh my goodness! These all look amazing! I want to make everything (and if I win the book i WILL) !!! But if I had to choose….the COSMIC BROWNIES for the win!

    Cosmic brownies please!!!!

  • katherine

    If I had to choose one I would pick the poptart!

  • AD

    All of them look mouth-wateringly delicious, but I choose oatmeal creme pies! Does the book include a recipe for Little Debbie Fudge Rounds? I love those too!

  • Ariel

    They all look SO good! But if I had to choose just 1, I would definitely pick the COSMIC BROWNIES!! They were a childhood favorite of mine :)

  • heather

    The Twix bars look amazing!

  • KarenH

    Pop Tarts! Gluten free pasty has been the hardest for me to master.

    Little Debbie-Style Cosmic Brownies. I loved those as a kid and would be great if I was able to make those for my family.

  • RW

    Oh my! I want to bite that hostess cupcake! I remember eating them with my mom as an afternoon treat sometimes as a child. Good memories!! It’s be neat to have my mom over and have one with my girls and her! And I bet your version would be so much better minus all the crazy chemicals and preservatives!

  • Lee Palmer

    Oh My my sweet tooth is going crazy!!!! One of the hardest things in the past year has been watching my kids enjoy all those delicious snacks and me saying…enjoy! No this thank you so much….I have the bread book and use it all the time cannot wait for this book!!!!! The pop tarts are amazing be so good for quick on the run!!!!!

  • jennifer

    Can’t wait to get my hands on this book, too. Love all your other ones!! I am casting my vote for traditional oreos and the chips ahoy! Couldn’t make up my mind.

  • dede laine

    I feel downright ridiculous when I say I’m excited to have access to junk food cheats, BUT I AM! As someone who could not be trusted near an open box of little debbie anything before going gluten free, cosmic brownies it is!

  • Amanda

    They all look amazing, but the Hostess-style cupcakes look heavenly!

  • frog17

    I received your other 3 books for Christmas and I can’t wait to get the new one!! My husband has been gf for almost 2 yrs and your books have allowed him a sense of normalcy.

  • Noreen

    I say the whopper style treats but my son says the cosmic brownies!!!

  • Barbara

    It’s a tie in my family between pop tarts and the Oreo-type cookies. I have ALL your books to date and pre-purchased the one coming out now. Can’t wait! Your books making having to go gluten-free a no-brainer!

  • Jean E

    I was late preparing dinner last night and I told my husband it was because I was looking at Food Porn! Love the new cookbook with all of the pictures and I can’t wait to make Twix candy bars

  • Georgi

    Pop Tarts, pop tarts, pop tarts!!! So yummy.

  • mkbrod2

    poptarts! i lived off of those as a kid and now i’m so sad i can’t! :(

  • Jeanette
  • Linda K.

    Born and raised in Hershey, PA, we were raised with TastyKakes. My favorite growing up was the Butterscotch Krimpets. Thanks for making them gluten free! I received my copy of the Classic Snacks book last week and can’t wait to try them to bring back the childhood memories!

  • GEM

    Ohh really difficult decision. Top two are pop tarts or oreos. I choose Oreo’s. Thanks for all you hard work to create all these tasty recipes.

  • Casey Hoffman

    Who can resist chocolate? The Little Debbie Style Cosmic Brownies are something that reminds me of childhood, and yours are probably much better! Thanks for sharing!

  • JJ

    whoppers-style original malted milk balls! I’ve missed those so much! been drooling through gf classic snacks since my pre-ordered copy arrived in the mail 2 days ago. everything in that book looks amazing…………having a hard time deciding which recipe to try first. *still drooling*

  • Kayla

    They all look absolutely heavenly, but the funny thing is, I haven’t had quite a few of these even before being diagnosed. Getting to eat such treats I have missed, while being able to try new things as well is what I can’t wait to do with your book. I have all your other books (and use them all. the. time!) , and am asking for this for my upcoming birthday. I would enjoy any one of these, but absolutely would LOVE the malted milk balls–they look delicious!! Your photos make me drool…

  • anniehuffy

    So hard to chose just one! Got my copy yesterday, so excited! My favorite wojld be the Twix style caramel cookie bar, just because someone has to be first.

  • Danielle

    Very difficult to choose! I think Oreo’s top my list with Twix coming in as a close second. Thank you for all that you do. :)

  • Donna Louise

    The Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies were always my son’s favorite. I used to buy him his own box!

  • Dee

    Little Debbie style cosmic brownies for the win!! These were one of my favorite treats but eating gluten free I haven’t been able to have them in years!!

  • Joy

    Oatmeal Creme Pies bring tears to my eyes! Childhood favorite!

  • Michelle N.

    I’d love to win! Thank you for the chance.

    I miss licorice! Black and red! I look forward to trying those recipes.

  • Haley Davidson

    My vote is for the Little Debbie-Style Cosmic Brownies!! I used to LOVE those but haven’t had one in sooo long!

  • Richard Murphy

    Oatmeal cream pies!!!

  • Heather

    I vote for oreos!

  • shard

    I was going to vote for the oreos, but my kids out-voted me, and want me to say the pop-tarts. but that’s ok, they are both in the book. :)

  • Geri Ferguson Alexander

    I vote for Little Debbie brownies.

  • ASL

    Twix-Twix my favorite treats!

  • Terri Rider-Smoyer

    I would say the Hostess chocolate cupcake. It’s a hard to decide, I have not have all the above in about 20 years, so anything would be welcome for me.

  • Laurie Knuever

    I vote for the WW brownies.

  • Donali

    Love your other books – I think I have them all, and need to add this one to my collection! My baby sis has Celiac disease, so that’s why I’m so interested. Hostess cupcakes!! Yum! And if they’re not already in your Classic Snacks book we need Funny Bones!!

    • Oh my gosh, Donali, I totally forgot about Drake’s Funny Bones! They don’t make them any more at all, I don’t think. A blog recipe is in order. Great idea!!

      • Donali

        Actually, they still do make them back East, or at least they still did a couple years ago, as my BF sent me a couple of boxes after suffering through my many descriptions, and waxing poetic over these morsels of grade school lunch boxes… :-)

        • Donali

          Of course, after checking the official website, they are sadly not listed on the product page any longer. :-( Boo! But we’ll have your recipe, at least! :-)

  • Jen

    Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies

  • Sandy

    The Hostess cup cake would be my choice. This would be such a great birthday present!

  • Pdanlisa

    I think your recipes are fab! I look at the emails, daily.

  • Lisa J

    We love Twix!

  • Pdanlisa

    Oh and yes please put Whoppers-Style Original Malted Milk Balls in the blog next week!

  • Teri Boyd

    All of these recipes look absolutely yummy. But Nicole, the Hostess Style Chocolate Cupcake gets my vote. This delightful little dessert brings back fond memories of Mom putting these into our lunches, frozen. This was during the summers when we picked strawberries and beans to make money for school clothes. I am so excited for the new book, I already have all the others. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your wisdom with all of us.

  • Nicole L.

    Twix bars!

  • ashleystone

    You gave too many great choices, that’s mean just simply mean ;-)

    I guess I’d have to say the Malted Milk Balls (though the Twix are right behind). My daughter has CD and I have a corn allergy and haven’t had my Malted Milk Balls in years I’d love a recipe to make attempts myself!!

  • Tara

    Ohhhhh so hard to pick. But if i have to i pick oatmeal creme pies. But i really want to know how u do that nice swirly top on the twix! Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  • Connie Peterson

    Excited – love your recipes! MMM! Cosmic Brownies look amazing!

  • Joni G.

    I received my copy on Tuesday, so I have ALL of the recipes. But the first one I’ll be trying this weekend is: Whoppers-Style Original Malted Milk Balls!!

  • Trisha

    This is impossible for me to choose just one! I will be happy with ANY that I get to print but as far as a vote goes the five kiddos in the house say ” OATMEAL CREME PIES!!” So there you have it. :)

  • Ellyn

    A difficult (& delicious) choice to ponder. The WW brownies would be my choice, with everything else coming in a close second place.

  • Renee

    Your pictures make this a very difficult decision but I vote for the Hostess style chocolate cupcakes. Thanks for all of your hard work

  • I’m truly torn between the Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates and the Hostess chocolate cupcakes. I’d be happy with either of those!

  • Guest

    Really tough choice but I vote for the Whoppers.

  • ErinK

    I would love the brownies. And, I have all your cookbooks and love them!

  • Jessica Z

    Either the whoppers or twix – I can make baked goods easily enough its the candies that are hard to figure out!

  • Annike

    If there’s one snack I thought would never, ever be recreated gluten free… it would be Whoppers! I love that you’ve included these in your book because they’re unique. Something I haven’t seen attempted. Anywhere. Until now!!! My vote, hands down (because they were up when I was doing the g free Whoppers happy dance) is, of course… Whoppers-Style Original Malted Milk Balls!!!! Thank you… & I love the cover of this cookbook- looks retro-sweet & good enough to eat!

  • Roxanne Ril

    Chocolate Oreos, if I could eat Oreos without getting sick, I think I could make it through college!

  • Lisa Tanghe

    I would choose the Oreo cookies, more the golden than the chocolate. My daughter is a vanilla fan all the way.

  • Laura C.

    It’s so painful to only pick one, but I must go with the Hostess Cupcakes because I loved them as a kid and it makes me think of my grandpa who always bought them for me.

Hehe) I have your other books and I’m definitely going to own this book too, plus buy a copy for my friend as a birthday gift!

    I have all of your books so far. I would love to have this one too!

  • Machelle

    I would love to see the Little Debbie Style Oatmeal Cream cookies! So many fond memories of those with my grandparents!

  • LLC

    Everything looks amazing, but I’d love to see the Twix-style bar recipe printed!

  • PeggyLynn

    My Celiac diagnoses coincided with the removal of twinkles from the market and I should be ashamed to say I was thrilled that if I wasn’t getting them NO one was! Now that they are back I tear up every time I pass them in the market.

  • Kit

    Oh my! I have a wheat allergy and have spent far more time away from sweets than I like :( the poptart recipe sounds delicious!!! I miss poptarts so much.

  • Deborah Dorris

    All of them are great but I choose the Little Debbie Style Oatmeal Cream Cookies.

  • Bonnie

    Kellogg’s-Style Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts Toaster Pastries. I think you posted this picture last week and I’ve wanted the recipe ever since.

  • Barbara Brooke-Reese

    i want the Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies. Just the picture brought back childhood memory of sneaking these with my dad. We were not supposed to have them before dinner, but my dad and i would sneak them anyways.

  • How can you make me pick only one Nicole?! HOW?!?!?! Well, i guess if it really comes down to it… I miss twix bars like crazy. This is definitely one of my favorite candies!

  • Susan

    Malted Milk Balls !

  • Kimmy Dawn Cox Wright

    I would love for you to do the malt balls! The Easter egg shaped ones with the candy coating were a big part of Easter as a kid. We would lick them then try and smear the color on cousins, parents, and if you got lucky grandpa! I really miss them and would love to do them for Easter for my kids to join in the fun.

  • Laura

    I would love to have an Oreo. I miss the sweet cream and chocolate crunch. I can’t wait to try them. Thanks.

  • Beth

    The cosmic brownies look amazing!! I can’t wait for the new book!!

  • VickyC

    So hard to decide! I want them all. Guess I will just have to pick up a copy of the book :) But for now I think twix are my pick.

  • Kara

    Oreos! (Golden of course…) OMG – TWIX!!! Hostess Cupcakes (my parents would never let me have those, I only experienced them via the goodness of friends. And that frosting that peeled off in one layer – oh the joy! LOL!)

    Official vote for Twix though. I really miss those and daughter doesn’t remember ever having them! Although it’s more likely I’ll make oreos….ARRRGHHHHH!!!!

    And a book…I’ll definitely be asking for this for my birthday next month!

  • Jennifer Beck Erickson

    I miss them all! My kids would be thrilled to have the pop tarts though!

  • Abby

    If I can only pick one, it’ll have to be the oatmeal cream pies! Yum!

  • Amethystjean

    I would have to say Ferrero Rocher style chocolates.I am excited for this book!

  • Abigael Jones

    Whoppers! Please I miss malted milk balls the most, so many childhood memories!

  • Mandy

    Hubby is gluten free and he says Twix!!!

  • Tami

    I love your cookbooks and use them all the time! Can’t wait for this one too! My vote is for Hostess-Style Chocolate Cupcakes!

  • cat

    Whoppers please! I won’t let my honey bring the real ones into the house, they’re just too tempting.

  • Mom2HockeyGreat

    Whoppers most definitely!!!!! Just started gluten free trial for my son and he really likes these!!!

  • Betty Halverson

    Oh, a Twix bar would be soooo yummy right now!

  • Jenna I

    Whoppers! Always whoppers! :)

  • Lorna

    All the recipes look so wonderful it’s really hard to pick just one…..which is why I absolutely must have to whole book. If I have to settle for only one I think I’d go for the Little Debbie-Style Oatmeal Creme Pies;

  • Steel Springs

    Those all look so good! I think the Oatmeal Creme Pies would be fun to have on the blog.

  • Delaney

    I’m new to being gluten-free. Doing it for health reasons. I love to
    cook, bake, etc., but it has become hard for me with this new switch.
    Would love to be able to use this book! Blessings <3

  • Delaney

    And the hazelnut chocolates. Definitely ;)

  • The Oreo-style sandwich cookies! Classic!


  • redlimpet

    Pop tarts! It has been soooo long…

  • Haley

    Twix style bars!!!! Omg what’s not to love biscuity gooey caramel and chocolate aswell……. Drool!!!!!!

  • Jenna

    Oatmeal Cream Pies!

  • I am indecisive so I am voting for two. Pop Tarts and Oreos.

  • Anna Tackett

    I can’t decide!!! Oatmeal cream pies & pop tarts! :)

  • Tracy

    Decisions, decisions!! I think it has to be the Twix style caramel cookie bar! Thank you!

    Looking forward to getting my book!!

  • Jennifer

    Oatmeal creme pies I think! So excited for the book to come out!,

  • Mark

    Hostess cupcakes!

  • Devan

    Cosmic brownies!! It’s absolutely terrible being a kid that’s got Celiacs. :( I miss the classic snacks.

  • Brandy Huffman

    Cosmic Brownies! But I’d be okay with Oatmeal Pies or Malted Milk Balls. Or Hostess cupcakes. :)

  • Steph Myers

    Omg all of these look amazing. I use to love whoppers as a kid. This is a must try

  • nvcrisman

    All of these look so great, and I can’t wait until the book comes out. This is the stuff that I go to the store wishing I could eat! As for which of these to vote for, it was a tough decision, but I have to go with oatmeal cream pies, classic!

  • David Klassman

    oh i could really go for a twix again haha

  • Lynn A. Decker

    Oatmeal Creme Pies, for sure!

  • D Ruffen

    I think since I loved the Oreo Cakesters recipe so much, I’d have to go with the original Oreos that look devine. Although, they all look amazing as well…..

  • Kelly

    The Little Debbie Brownies, please!

  • Yasmin Reyes

    Hmm Im torn between the Cosmic Brownies and the Weight Watchers brownies…. I’ll go with the WW brownies :) the loads of chocolatey goodness … My kids are gf and they’d love these!

  • Rachel Perry Gillaspy

    I’d love to see the Hostess Cupcake recipe (but the whoppers sound intriguing, too)!

  • Mary Ann

    For me its gotta be the Hostess cupcakes!!

  • cheeky

    I miss the pop tarts … Oh when the kids eat them all toasty oh my how my mouth waters…

  • Emily

    Those cupcakes look *so* good…can’t wait to try them.

  • Shauna Barrineau

    I really miss Whoppers, so my vote is with the Whopper-style original malted milk balls!!

  • tbrinkman11

    This is our first completely Gluten Free Easter, and I must say I really miss Whoppers! So I choose Whoppers as the recipe for your Blog post! Happy Easter!

  • Robin Ussery
  • Jane Shields

    My daughters family all 3 are gluten intolernate. I’d pick the cookies. My grandson is a real sweet eater.Or anything choclate.

  • Kelly

    All look so good, hard to choose. My first pick would probably be the oatmeal sandwich cookies.

  • Heidi Meyer

    Cosmic brownies

  • erin Pellot

    Pop tarts

  • Paula Maack

    The fact is you have given us such an amazing assortment to choose from, no doubt we all want all of them, and that is the point – get the book! While I agree with many here that the cupcakes, pop-tarts and oatmeal cremes look amazing, as does everything else, when I saw the whoppers I let out an audible gasp. That is such a rare and special offering, and one that I truly miss being G-Free. So, I hope you do it. And I really hope I win the book. It would be an honor. I am a huge fan! xo

  • Julia C

    Twix Twix Twix!!!!!!

  • LeAnng

    Gotta go with Twix!

  • Amanda

    Twix or Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes. Both are awesome.

    Kellogs style frosted strawberry poptarts!!! My daughter would love these

  • Adele

    Twix for sure!

  • Kris Mitchoff Fappas

    TWIX!!!! I miss Twix!

  • Ann C

    PIck ME, pick ME!!!! Really, yes, I am begging! Please! And my recipe choice is the Ferrero Rocher chocolate look-alikes, of course. Chocolate is my ultimate favorite food. I’m still baking my way through “Bakes Bread,” but if I win a copy of “Classic Snacks,” I’ll put the bread aside and start trying everything in there (chocolate first.)

  • Gina Doty

    This is heaven! I’m going with the Weight Watchers style brownies so I can eat more

  • Brittany Clawson

    I’m so excited! I can’t wait for your book. I’m fairly new to gluten free and I’m so thankful that you have given me such hope. Oatmeal pies are my vote- they were a childhood staple.

  • Becky

    I am so excited about this book. I have been gluten free for about 6 months, and I am slowly converting my family. One of the biggest arguments is over snacks. Hopefully this will make them converts! I think my vote would be for the Hostess cupcakes! My daughter loves them but I rarely buy them because they are so bad for you.

  • Angie Childers

    I just received your book yesterday,and I can’t decide where to start! They all look so good! My vote is for the Twix, I miss them so much!

  • Alexandra Winter

    I miss twix and ferrero rocher

    Would LOVE to receive this book and indulge in some gluten free treats

    Definitely Twix… although I would LOVE to make many of these for my little guy who has never experienced these yummy goodies because he needs to be gluten free!

  • Lindsay

    The oatmeal cream cookies, most definitely. I get envious anytime I head to my parent’s house for a holiday and see them in the pantry.

  • Adaptagirl
  • redonda

    I am hoping for malted milk balls. They are my favourite Easter candy and I am missing them this year!

  • Jeckles Freckles

    Oh my lanta!!! Look at all this deliciousness!!! :) I’m in absolute awe right now! So want to make ALL of the recipes. But if I had to pick just one… or two I’d make the malted milk balls and oatmeal cream pies. Miss eating those so much!

  • Jeanne
  • Karen Lambe

    The chocolatr cupcakes! Loved them as a kid!

  • Karen

    As I was Easter shopping I realized I would never enjoy another malted milk ball. Thanks to you, Nicole, my frown has turned into a smile! You are amazing! I would LOVE to win your newest book

  • Brian Westphal

    Hostess cupcakes! This book is going to be great!

  • SarahLM

    malted milk balls!! I’m always so sad at Easter when I can’t have the malted eggs anymore. I don’t even think I ever counted them in my favourites as a child, but the nostalgia….

  • Carrie O

    little Debbie-style Oatmeal Cream Pies were a HUGE favorite around here!

  • Jenny Wren
  • Teresa B

    Twix bars! We LOVE those, and with my husband’s allergy he can’t have them anymore :(

    strawberry pop tarts! I can only imagine how much better they will taste made from scratch with high quality ingredients…. mmmm….

  • [email protected]

    Pop tarts! My husband and son keep wishing we had some in the house :)

  • Brenda

    Twix style- caramel cookie bars. I agree, why stop there, yummy. I find it delightful that even having gone gluten free, my ability to make goodies has not ended. Thank you!

  • Pattie Webb

    Malted milk balls….yummy

  • Kim Humphries

    Oooh. so hard to choose just one…but the Little Debbie Oatmeal Crème Pies sound yummy…

  • Kelsey

    A Twix? Man, I would love to eat a Twix. Brilliant!

  • Kathleen Roe

    Wow, I had to check the Table of Contents and I have to get this book! I love the two others I have on Baking breads and the other with the Bagels. Thank you for your labor of love. :)

  • CarrieBlue

    The gluten free Oreos…. Without a doubt would be a dream come true!!!!

  • sameehbeh

    i thought this would be a hard choice… but then i saw Twix-style caramel cookie bars. yes, please. done. that was my go to candy when i could scrape up the money as a kid, and i would love to have one again.

  • Julie

    Definitely the Twiz-Style Cookie Bars!! Yum!!

  • Karrie Roberts

    Such a hard decision!! I feel like a kid in a candy store. Everyone of those were my favs. If I had to choose, it would be the Hostess Cupcakes. I can’t wait to show my son, he will be so excited.

  • Laura H.

    I vote for the recipe for the oatmeal cream pies! Thank you. ❤

  • Tammy B

    OMG the Little Debbie Brownies and Hostess cupcakes! Yummy

  • Amy W

    It’s so hard to choose just one, but my two finalists would be either Pop Tarts or Cosmic Brownies!

  • Rodney Bevill

    I have always had a weakness for brownies so two choices make it hard. However, chocolate chip brownies are my favorite so Weight Watchers-style Chocolate Brownies is my choice. This is great since I am just starting out in the gluten-free environment. Looking forward to getting a copy of the book.

  • Kendra Kuntz

    Although I’m in Weight Watchers, I’d rather see Twix for my kids. They miss them!

  • Angel_in_Charleston

    Ooooh, Twix. Definitely Twix.

  • Jenny Jones

    Oatmeal cream pies. Please and thank you.

  • Carol Fritz

    Oatmeal Cream pies. Please! Love oatmeal and anything made with it!

  • lettergirl

    Thanks so much for the chance to win a copy of the new book. I have your other three books (great way to support your blog!) but finances are a little tight right now. Do I really have to pick just one recipe?! I would go with the malted milk balls because my GF daughter really misses those. Happy weekend!

  • wendy jaimes

    I would choose the twix for my son. He misses eating those! He would be so excited!

  • Amy Degler

    My family picks the Twix- style Carmel cookie bars! I can almost taste them just thinking about it!

  • Rhonda Semo

    Twix! I can’t wait for this book!

    The Oatmeal Creme Pies – I think I ate one every day for lunch during middle school (pre-celiac diagnosis, of course!)

  • Reader

    Ferrero Rocher-style Fine Hazelnut Chocolates – 19 years with Celiac – I have never tasted one but have always wanted to!

  • Beverly Ferenaz Powers

    One daughter misses Oreos. Another daughter would love a pop tart. I would love an oatmeal cream pie. Yummy!

  • Elaine Taylor

    Malted milk balls. I want them. Wondered why they always made me sick. Ate them anyway.

  • Victoria Donaldson

    Twix and malted milk balls are kind of on par… Mmmmmm Twix probably wins though. Thanks for the deliciousness

  • TC

    The Kellogg’s-Style Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts Toaster Pastries.

  • Jessica

    Oh the Kellogg’s-Style Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts Toaster Pastries, please! I have tried so many times to create suitable pop-tarts and they have all been terrible failures!

  • marlenescoville

    The Twix look amazing!

  • Tori

    Definitely malted milk balls.

  • Chris

    Since many of the GF Oreo-style sandwich cookies also have soy in them…it has been YEARS since I have had any (9 years in fact). My vote is for the Oreo-style sandwich cookies (either chocolate or golden). YUMMY!

  • Jen Merrill

    Whoppers! God, I miss those things…

  • Pamela Grant

    Whoppers oh ya whoppers
