Sugar Rush

Becky McKay was going for a real statement dish when she made this Oatmeal Creme Pie Creme Pie. She took six Little Debbie brand oatmeal creme pies (which are very tasty!) and she combined them all with butter, Cool Whip and 12 ounces of canned vanilla frosting. Then, voila! She had herself a creme pie within a creme pie.

Making ice cream the old-fashioned way is great, but it’s not particularly fun. Thankfully, it looks like Hammacher Schlemmer has come up with an entertaining and innovative way for the whole family to make ice cream together while also getting a bit of exercise. The $35 Kickball Ice Cream Maker is… well, a kickball that makes ice cream.

Once you put all of your ingredients inside the “ice chamber,” it only takes 20 minutes of play-time to make a pint. Sounds good to me, but just make sure that’s 20 minutes of “no messing around, let’s kick butt and rule the playground” kickball, because otherwise, I think it might take a lot longer to churn out that tasty ice cream.

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.

“Wagashi” is a type of traditional Japanese candy that’s usually served with tea. Typically, the candies have some sort of nature or animal theme (you’ll see some flowery examples below). However, Twitter user Otakumi makes wagashi that are influenced by anime and video games. Otakumi makes these candies at Kuramoto Hinode, which is a wagashi shop in Tokushima Prefecture. They’re soft and they’re made from rice-based dough and bean paste. These particular wagashi are called “nerikiri”.

If you’re ever in Japan, make sure to check out Kuramoto Hinode and pick up some of these treats. They sure do look tasty!

Star Wars Cookies

Some bakers are secretly Jedi Masters, and Compassionate Cake might have a higher ranking than even Yoda. Jessica, the woman behind the bakery, is responsible for these sugar cookies and she did an unbelievable job with the portraits. She painted miniature pieces of art featuring Princess Leia, Darth Maul, Jango Fett, and more. I especially love that even Leia’s hair is textured and realistic looking. These desserts really do look too amazing to eat.

caramel apple oreo

The wave of exotic, flavored Oreos continues with caramel apple. Target Chief Marketing Officer Jeff Jones announced the new flavor on social media and stated they’d be available exclusively at Target. I feel skeptical about the combination working in cookie form, but I’d definitely be open to trying it.

Caramel Apple Oreos are already on store shelves. Will you be buying a package?

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!

chocolate bathroom 1

Bathroom sweets aren’t the same as bathroom suites, but consumers don’t always use the correct word when they search on Bathrooms.com. The CEO of the company, Ian Monk, said they decided answer searches for “bathroom sweets” with a literal interpretation. They worked with Choccywoccydoodah to make an entire bathroom suite with Belgian chocolate fixtures. It’s packed with calories (an estimated 9.4 million of them) and is actually being sold online for $133,000 at Bathroom Sweets.

The chocolate set comes with a tub, toilet, sink, and bidet, and the components are available separately. If kept at room temperature, the chocolate pieces supposedly have a six month shelf life. In case it’s not clear, you are not actually supposed to use them – only eat them.
