It’s official. Red Velvet Oreos are real.

Oreo has discovered that all they need to do to increase sales is come up with new and increasingly funky flavors of their famous sandwich cookies. They’ve done Gingerbread and Watermelon, and now the latest flavor is Red Velvet. It will appear in stores beginning on February 2nd.

However, this limited edition release is extra special since it’s the first time since the golden Oreo in 2009 that they’ve launched a new color and flavor. You’ll have 6 to 8 weeks to try them before they disappear.

baymax cookies

A touch of Baymax improves any dessert. The white squishy robot from Big Hero 6 is impossibly endearing, and his blob-like shape and round face makes it easy to incorporate him into baked goods. YouTuber Mosogourmet made chocolate cookies and used pre-made marshmallows to create fantastic Baymax marshmallow cookies. I’ll take a dozen, please!

Watch the cookies come together in the video after the break.

Frozen fever is still going strong around the world and in Disney parks. The “Frozen Fun” event recently launched at Disneyland in Anaheim, and “Anna and Elsa’s Frozen Fantasy” just took over Tokyo Disneyland. That park seems to rock special events like no other, and goes all out with theming. Besides parades, icy decorations, and giving some of their hotel rooms Arendelle makeovers, they also have delectable and cute Frozen edibles.

Miyata Takeshi from dpost.jp visited the event and snapped tons of photos including ones of food. You can get grape sherbet and blue jelly sundaes inspired by Anna and Elsa and an Olaf lemon sherbet and yogurt mousse sundae. Tokyo Disneyland’s Sherwood Garden restaurant features an elaborate Frozen-themed buffet with blue Jell-O and cakes decorated in Elsa and Anna colors.

Man, I need to get to Tokyo Disneyland, but I probably won’t make it before “Frozen Fantasy” ends on March 20th.

new ben and jerrys

Cookie butter makes everything better and that includes ice cream. Ben & Jerry’s is incorporating the heavenly substance into the launch of three new core flavors:

Spectacular Speculoos Cookie Core: Dark Caramel & Vanilla Ice Creams with Speculoos Cookies & a Speculoos Cookie Butter Core

Boom Chocolatta! Cookie Core: Mocha & Caramel Ice Creams with Chocolate Cookies, Fudge Flakes & a Chocolate Cookie Core

Peanut Buttah Cookie Core: Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Crunchy Peanut Butter Sugar Bits, Peanut Butter Cookies & a Peanut Butter Cookie Core

I want to sample the entire line, but I can easily picture myself putting away a pint of cookie butter while reading a good book.

Which one are you looking forward to trying? Let us know in the comments.

cheesecake doughnuts

When will I learn not to write when I’m hungry? The latest creation from Amy of Oh Bite It is killing me: cheesecake doughnuts! They look so scrumptious that I want to lick my screen. They’re made with cheesecake filling (yes, that’s a thing), biscuits, caramel ice cream topping, and graham cracker crumbs. You fry the biscuits and use a pastry bag to fill the biscuits with the cheesecake filling. Um, yes please.

Get the complete recipe at Oh Bite It.

chocoprint copy

So, we’ve talked about all kinds of 3D printers that deal with food, but this particular version is definitely among the most marketable.

3D Systems, in conjunction with The Hershey Company, unveiled a 3D chocolate printer at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas on Tuesday. The CocoJet can create unique geometric chocolate designs through pre-programmed synchronized printing methods. At this moment, there isn’t any word on when the CocoJet will be available commercially, though 3D Systems does plan on making it available to the public.

But just as a heads up, 3D Systems also has a number of other candy printers (like the ChefJet, which retails at around $5,000, or the ChefJet Pro which comes in at $10,000), so the price tag will undoubtedly scare off most ordinary buyers.

Sure, you can freeze them and have them all year long, but who really manages to ration them out? No one. We all eat one and then devour the box before we’ve even poured a glass of milk. This year, there are three new flavors for stuffing your face—two of which are gluten free.

You can pick from Toffee-tastic butter cookies with toffee bits or Trios peanut butter oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips. The third flavor is Rah-Rah-Raisins oatmeal cookies with raisins and Greek-yogurt flavored chunks. Prepare to loosen your belts because it’s cookie time!

baymax cookie shooters 1

Are you satisfied with your care? If not, add booze! Cassandra of When Geeks Wed came up with a tasty-sounding combo of a lemon drop shooter topped with lemon meringue cookies decorated to look like Baymax from Big Hero 6. The flavors compliment each other, but if you’re not into booze, just make a pile of Baymax cookies. You can’t lose!

See a couple more shots of the Baymax treat after the break.

A Redditor found a “five dollars for however much froyo you can fit into one cup” deal, and saw it as a chance for glory.

Instructables member Vanweb was feeling a bit bored on New Years day, so the baking connoisseur/Guardians fan decided to mix things up by making a Groot Yule Log using some boxed cake mix and plenty of chocolate. The end result came out great, and I think using pistachios for the “moss” was a nice touch. What do you think? Honestly, Groot has never looked so tasty.
