You’ll be happy to be assimilated by the Borg when they arrive in this gingerbread cube. It’s made by using a Borg cube cookie cutter to create all six sides and then gluing them with icing. It makes for a cute ornament or you can use it as a little container to hold more holiday treats.

I’m convinced Amy at Oh Bite It is a sorcerer. She comes up with wild but delicious sounding recipes and churns them out like crazy. Her latest invention revolves around nacho cheese Doritos so you know it’s a winner. She made balls from cream cheese, shredded cheese, and salsa and covered them in crushed Doritos. Easy, colorful, and magical. Making these for your holiday gathering might make you a hero.

koolaid breaded onion rings

Nick of Dude Foods is back in his weird food lab again, and this time he had to come up with a recipe using a SodaStream Play that he received. Rather than brewing a beverage, he decided to make Kool-Aid breaded onion rings. Specifically, tropical punch Kool-Aid. He made the Kool-Aid with the SodaStream and mixed it with flour and coated sweet onions in the mixture before frying them. This idea goes on the list of interesting recipes that I will never feel compelled to try making at home.

french toast taquitos

Breakfasts that combine sweet carbs like pancakes or French toast with protein are my favorite, so this recipe for French toast taquitos by Amy of Oh Bite It has moved to the top of my to-make list. Bonus: it looks easy. You bake sausage, flatten crustless bread, roll the sausage up in the bread, dip it in some batter, and fry the little taquitos in a skillet. Clean up won’t be fun, but the taquitos look so yummy that the effort is probably worth it.

deep fried thanksgiving dinner

It’s time to deal with Thanksgiving leftovers. While heating up your turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce in the microwave is a fine option, you can get more creative. Amy of Oh Bite It decided to see what the leftovers would be like stuffed into some dough and deep fried.

She put together a bowl of Thanksgiving dinner (this is not for those of you who don’t like different kinds of food to be mixed), stuffed them into circles of crescent dough, and fried them in hot oil. I’m intrigued. Heck, it could improve the taste of bland food.

No, that’s not your standard Oreo. That’s a chocolate and stout sandwich cookie that was made by Redditor hensandchicas. Apparently, the recipe was adapted from this one, and switched things up by using “1 tbsp of molasses and the rest using stout to measure 1/3 cup”, using coarse sugar instead of granulated sugar and “winging” the filling with “1 cup softened unsalted butter, pinch of kosher salt, 1-2 cups powdered sugar, 2-3 tbsp stout until it tasted good.”

jawa

These ridiculously cute Jawa brownies are the work of Yummy Crumble (who also made that Sarlacc bunt cake we posted last month) and they’re perfect for the Christmas season. They’re super easy to make and start with your favorite boxed brownie mix. Once they’re baked, let them cool and use a Jawa cookie cutter to cut them out and give them their faces. Melt some chocolate flavored with a little peppermint extract, add yellow icing eyes, and you’ve got the cutest brownies in the galaxy.

baymax cake pops

From the moment I first saw Big Hero 6’s Baymax, I knew he was made to be turned into adorable edibles. The latest dessert to feature the inflatable robot is from Nerdache Cakes: Baymax cake pops! I want to hug them before eating them. Ant goes through the step-by-step for making the treats, and it doesn’t seem too difficult. Well, at least the version without armor doesn’t.

Watch the how-to after the break.

Gil Scout cookies are one of the most addictive substances on Earth, and now they’ve been turned into delicious shots. Trefoils, Samoas, Dosisdos, and Thin Mints have all gotten boozy in these recipes that sound pretty darn good. It’s still months before any of us will get our cookies, so this ought to make the time pass a little more quickly.
