Indeed, the container holding this candy is edible. Dave Hax created the vessel out of chocolate and fitted it with the label and lid from a conventional bottle for added realism.

The creation of the “Chocolate Milk Bottle Surprise” is chronicled in the video below, and will no doubt be used in place of conventional pinatas at many a party to come.

Chef Joe Castro of Quest Nutrition in LA likes to experiment with food, and obviously believes that one cookie simply isn’t enough. Therefore he created a chocolate chip cookie-topped chocolate chip cookie.

For the individual cookies, dubbed “Chocolate Chip Qookies”, Castro created a recipe that reportedly upps the protein and surgically removes over half the calories, carbs and fat without altering the flavor. Best of all, he’s provided a recipe, which you can check out in the video below.

If you’re old enough to remember Dunkaroos, aka the kangaroo-shaped mini cookies dunked in icing, then your wait for their return may finally be over.

Fun fact, Nerdalistas – I’m neither a drinker nor a Dark Souls fan, so I’m absolutely the right person to tell you about this adult beverage based on a healing potion from what is apparently everybody’s favorite roleplaying game.

The team at The Geeky Chef have provided a recipe based on the game’s Estus potion which includes, among other ingredients, orange juice, ginger beer and – no, but yes! – cinnamon whiskey. You then serve the concoction in a tiny glass bottle for authenticity’s sake, I guess.

One of these and your HP will be restored, giving you the strength and courage you need to save Middle-Earth (or something). Just remember that alcohol doesn’t actually have healing properties and is, in actual fact, a depressant, so you may find yourself less inclined to rescue Muggles (or whatever) and more likely to burst into tears and loudly asking why Jennifer left you. Why, Jennifer? We were so good together.

Look at this fruit.

Only it isn’t fruit. No, what you are looking at is actually an assortment of cakes, pies and tarts.
