Chef Joe Castro of Quest Nutrition in LA likes to experiment with food, and obviously believes that one cookie simply isn’t enough. Therefore he created a chocolate chip cookie-topped chocolate chip cookie.

For the individual cookies, dubbed “Chocolate Chip Qookies”, Castro created a recipe that reportedly upps the protein and surgically removes over half the calories, carbs and fat without altering the flavor. Best of all, he’s provided a recipe, which you can check out in the video below.

Sometimes, being as courageous as a superhero pays off in the long run. Shelley Bean and Mallory Mae, the mother-daughter duo behind ButterWinks, can probably attest to that after leaving their corporate jobs back in 2012 to launch their own business. Their gorgeous and expertly crafted cookies are topped with unique designs ranging from abstract art to comic book heroes and even nostalgic characters from years gone by.

Every single cookie is unique, according to Mae, who said that all of the company’s cookies are “completely freehand from start to finish”. No tracing, no machines, just hard work and artistry.

Check out more of their masterpieces below.

Although enjoyable to watch, it seems Apple should have showed all the ways the phone could have helped kill time with games, Siri questions and internet cookie porn.

Watch it below.

Pastry chef Amber Spiegel of SweetAmbs came back from a trip to Japan with a new appreciation for ramen, and has since tried out every noodle shop that pops up near her hometown.

In fact, she’s so obsessed that she put her talents to work to create a deceptively realistic cookie that looks like bowl of Ramen with chopsticks on the side.

Best of all, she has taken to YouTube to teach the world how it’s done. Check it out below.

Humanity’s never ending quest to produce viral videos resulted in a new (and completely pointless) experiment from the guys at GizmoSlip, who decided to find out what would happen if an iPad was encased in cookie dough, baked, and then dropped off a 100ft-tall building.

As you’ll see, the iPad proved to be pretty tolerant to the tech torture, but not tolerant enough. Needless to say, if you’re an Apple devotee or have always wanted to own an iPad, the video below is probably not for you.

Leeds-based baker Lou Lou P’s Delights has drawn inspiration from cats sitting in sinks to create a series of “If I Fits I Sits” sandwich cookies.

Like cats themselves, the details are a complete mystery – although we expect that they’re not flavored like brass and cat hair. Whatever the case, it’s clear that if these cats are going to be eaten, they’re going to go in comfort.
