I agree with Marie and Syrena. She is playing you like a fiddle!
A kitten is not capable of starving itself unless it's very ill. Since she's still playing and has a normal energy level I'd guess she's just being a princess. Throw out the treats entirely. My cats don't get 'normal' cat treats for exactly this reason. If they get a treat it's something really yummy, like a teeny bit of cheese, cooked meat, or something I know they like in particular.
Ignore the princess behavior. Put her food down, and if she doesn't eat it take the food away 20 minutes later. She will learn very quickly that she has to eat within that set timeframe or wait until the next meal. At her age she should be eating at least 3 times a day, more would be better though. If she doesn't eat one meal just put it in th fridge and re-offer it for the next meal.
DON'T give in to her naughtiness or you're setting yourself, and her, up for a really bad future with food. I've known many people who start up just like you and, through giving in to a princess/prince, end up with a cat that ONLY eats tuna, or one flavor of fancy feast. Neither of which is a good choice for the cat.
