dancing baby groot cupcakes

These super cute dancing baby Groot cupcakes by JK Denim of the Koalipops YouTube channel are both adorable and easy to make.

All you’ll need are some pre-made cupcakes, shortbread dough, icing, a piping bag, and a DIY Groot stencil.

And the best thing is that you could put a dancing baby Groot on other food too. Think of the possibilities!

You can watch the tutorial after the break.

soot sprite cake pops 1

Soot sprites are cute little creatures that appear in a couple of Studio Ghibli films; you can spot them in Spirited Away and My Neighbor Totoro. Food Fiction came up with a way to translate the sprites to cookie pops, and they couldn’t be more perfect. It requires chocolate sandwich cookies, candy melts, Tootsie Rolls, and a handful of other supplies. The process looks a touch time consuming but just look at the results! I want to turn everything into cookie pops now.

peanut butter pretzel ice cream cake

If you could capture the idea of heaven in food, I’m pretty sure it would look like this peanut butter and pretzel ice cream cake. Instructables user thekites posted this gorgeous dessert, and it’s made with two boxes of brownie mix, cream cheese, Reese’s Cup minis, and several more sugary ingredients. The ice cream portion isn’t technically ice cream from the carton, but it’s close enough to count. The recipe looks easy enough, and it’s definitely the kind of dessert that deserves to be shown off at a cookout or family gathering.

Get the full recipe at Instructables.

If Peter Quill had a signature drink (albeit one that’s sans alcohol, because maybe he has to fly somewhere) it would definitely be the Star-Lord Mocktail. It’s described as being a bit sweet, thanks to the strawberry orange juice and pineapple juice, but it’s all balanced out nicely with some ginger beer. There’s also a habanero pepper added into the mix for a real extra kick!

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.

There’s no wrong time to ever enjoy a good, old-fashioned hot dog but there is also never a wrong time to explore creative possibilities with the classic food. In fact, July is probably the best month to let your hot dog dreams loose since its National Hot Dog Month!

What better time is there to go a little extreme with your dog or maybe show off your geeky side and add a pop culture theme to your food? After the break see some of the most intense hot dogs that you can try making to celebrate this doggone month!

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.
