spicy tuna corn dog 1

I’m not convinced it’s possible to improve spicy tuna rolls, but the Culinary Bro-Down has a plausible theory. He’s turned the roll into a corndog. It all starts with uncut spicy tuna rolls, and you put them on a stick and dip them in a cornmeal and flour batter. It’s simple and sounds absolutely mouthwatering.

ipp

Instant Ramen Noodles are a tasty treat and so is pudding, but combining the two? That’s apparently all the rage in Taiwan right now and the guys over at RocketNews24 decided to give it a try.

First you make instant Ramen noodles just like normal, then you add in the custard and mix it all up. They say that the resulting concoction is a “pleasant experience” with “a nice blend of salty and sweet and the hot noodles and cool pudding balanced out to a comfortably warm temperature.”

I’ll have to take their word for it.

doritos cupcakes

While we’ve seen Mountain Dew cupcakes before, the fact that Nerdy Nummies host Rosanna Pansino added Doritos to the recipe and created a video for you to follow took things up a notch. We can’t decide if this is disgusting or amazing, but it is definitely a treat that gamers can appreciate.

Check out the video and a list of ingredients after the break.

animal crossing apron

When you’re making recipes from video games, there’s no reason to stop your theming with the food. The Wild Bunny takes it a step further and creates aprons to match whatever she’s making. For example, she recently made an Animal Crossing birthday cake that looks just like one from the cute game. To complement it, she made an apron like shop owner Tom Nook’s. Yes, it is adorable.

She’s taken similar approaches to games like Minecraft, BioShock Infinite, Metroid, and more!

See more of The Wild Bunny’s fantastic and creative work after the break.

Adding Nutella to anything makes it tastier (steak, plywood, granite, you name it). But if you add a Nutella glaze to a Nutella doughnut, it’s a scientific fact that you’ll create a treat that’s so tasty, it’ll shatter the space-time continuum with its deliciousness. Are you prepared to unleash that kind of chaos on the universe?

Are you?

If so, then you’ll want to check out this video from The Vegetarian Baker. The recipe for the Nutella Doughnuts was sourced from Jaclyn Bell of Cooking Classy, and it looks beyond amazing. Enjoy!
