I found the instructions for these on Pinterest and made them for my Book Launch Party for Abby and the Book Bunch! You roll out fondant and cut it into small rectangles and then wrap each rectangle with fruit leather. I found fruit leather from Amazon which was exactly the right size. They are super easy to make but a little time consuming. I put waxed paper on top of each layer and weighed the tiny books down with a real book wrapped in foil to encourage them to stay closed. The fruit leather is sticky enough that they seal fairly quickly. These would be so cute for a Book Discussion Group or any kind of literary party! They are well worth the time to make them!

What a wonderful idea! My mouth was watering just looking at them. I hope they taste as good as they look. All I need now is a chocolate reading lamp. Thanks for the super suggestion!
