The Scooby-Doo! Cookbook is a book for the whole family.

The Scooby-Doo! Cookbook is the latest arrival in a growing trend of cookbooks aimed at making cooking fun for the entire family.

There are few cartoon characters that are as instantly recognizable as Scooby-Doo. First arriving on television screens back in 1969 in the classic Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! television series, the lovable dog who solves mysteries with his friends quickly became a part of American culture.

Since then, Scooby-Doo has appeared in various television shows, movies, and on more merchandise then you can count. Odds are you either owned or have a child who owns something with Scooby-Doo and Shaggy emblazoned upon it somewhere in your home.

The Scooby-Doo! Cookbook has arrived!

And now that also includes a brand new cookbook.

Released earlier this year before the world came to a screeching halt, the Scooby-Doo! Cookbook includes more than 25 recipes that are kid friendly and can be enjoyed by the whole family. It is part of a popular trend of creating cookbooks that kids will enjoy reading and hopefully entice them to give cooking a try.

The book includes recipes for everything from Mystery Map Pizza (a pizza with extra cheese and pickles) to Swamp Brownie Cocoa (hot cocoa with a decidedly green tint to it). Each recipe has clear instructions and big, colorful pictures to make it easy for kinds of any age to follow along.

The Scooby-Doo! Cookbook will set you back about $18 and can be found online at Target and Amazon as well as your local bookseller. It makes a great gift and will give you every excuse to head into the kitchen and have some fun.
