Delish Insane Sweets: Bake Yourself a Little Crazy: 100+ Cookies, Bars, Bites, and Treats

Joanna Saltz and The Editors of Delish. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $22.99 (256p) ISBN 978-0-358-19334-0
This second cookbook from the eponymous food media company (after Delish: Eat Like Every Day’s the Weekend) is another fun collection of recipes that readers will be eager to try. In addition to dessert staples like chocolate chip cookies, vanilla cupcakes, and fudgy brownies, there are plenty of creative twists on classics, such as chocolate chip cookie dippers, Rolo-stuffed blondies, and frappuccino cupcakes. Some of the desserts are infused with alcohol, most notably the Moscow mule cupcakes, Kentucky screwdriver brownies, and mini eggnog cheesecakes. There are also recipes inspired by pop culture, such as Sorting Hat cupcakes from Harry Potter and Leg Lamp cookies inspired by A Christmas Story. Also appealing is a chapter devoted to oversize desserts—including s’mores skillet cookies and a giant Oreo cake. The recipes are simple to follow and include helpful tips that bakers of all levels will appreciate (“These cookies have a tendency to stick to the parchment... be sure not to skip greasing it”). Delish fans will appreciate this tasty addition to the brand. (Oct.)
