Homemade Goldfish Crackers + Classic Snacks Giveaway

by Casey Barber on February 18, 2013

At this point I’ve talked your ear off about Classic Snacks Made from Scratch: 70 Homemade Versions of Your Favorite Brand-Name Treats: from the initial idea to the adorably appetizing photos to opportunities to eat snacks with me in person. And now our long national wait for homemade Twinkies, Oreos, Zingers, and Cheetos is over: the book is on shelves and waiting for you to take it home!

Classic Snacks Made from Scratch
I’m so excited about the book’s release that today I’m giving away a signed copy of Classic Snacks Made from Scratch plus an 8-oz. jar of King Arthur Flour Vermont cheese powder plus a fish-shaped copper cookie cutter from CopperGifts.com that’s just the right size for making homemade Goldfish. These are the exact tools I use for my recipe, which follows below—and which has already been taste-tested and approved many times over by the under-six set.

(The cheese powder, by the way, is one of the very few ingredients in the book that I recommend buying online. While you can find other versions from other brands at your local health food or specialty grocery stores—and at Wal-Mart, as some of my testers report—the King Arthur Flour version is pure Vermont cheddar cheese, so tart, tangy, and creamy that it’s become indispensable in my kitchen. In addition to the Goldfish recipe, I use it as a crucial ingredient in both Cool Ranch and Nacho Doritos, Cheetos, cheddar popcorn, and more in the book. So it’s worth getting your hands on this generous half-pound tub to see what you can do with it.)

My friends and fellow food writers around the globe are already hard at work trying their hands at recipes from the book, making Nutter Butters, soft pretzels, Mint Milanos, oatmeal creme pies, cinnamon Pop-Tarts, and other fun-to-eat creations. If you haven’t yet bought your copy and want more chances to win, keep your eye on the Classic Snacks Made from Scratch website, where I’ll be posting updates on additional giveaways, book tour updates, and more news.

The giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!

I love fishy crackers but truly consider selling my soul for a Twinkie right now, so I scooted over to Facebook and liked your page :)

I always consider junk food to be good news, so I subscribed to your newsletter about 10 seconds ago!
