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.
Mix all the ingredients, then fill each cupcake tray about 3/4 of the way up. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean without batter sticking to it.
Mix all the ingredients (except the Doritos) together until smooth.
