Kosaka Daimaou (aka Piko Taro) has become a sensation following his delightfully weird ditty “Pen-Pineapple Apple-Pen” (PPAP), which actually became the shortest song to ever reach the US Billboard Hot 100 charts.

His newfound fame brought Piko Taro to the Japanese version of Sesame Street, where he joined Elmo and Cookie Monster to pay musical tribute to the cookie with “Cookie-Butter-Choco-Cookie” (CBCC). Watch the video below. [click to continue…]

The future of cookie baking is finally here: say hello to the CHiP Smart Cookie Oven. It functions like a Wi-Fi-enabled Keurig for cookies. Yes, you read that right.

All you need to do is scan the QR code on each cookie dough pod (which contains enough dough for one cookie) with the CHiP app and it will send baking instructions to the oven. CHiP uses hot air and convection fan to bake a batch of four cookies (max) in around ten minutes. Since the oven is Wi-Fi enabled, the oven will send baking notifications about your cookies straight to your phone. Because that’s information you NEED RIGHT NOW.

The CHiP will run for about $249 at retail but can be had for $99 during the Kickstarter campaign. A pod subscription will run roughly 88 cents to $2 each.

I mean, I like cookies as much as the next guy but…come on. However, if the idea of an Easy Bake Oven for adults sounds appealing to you, check out the video below to learn more. [click to continue…]

The Weeping Angels depicted on cookie jars work a little differently than the statues you’re familiar with. These Weeping Angels use BAIT. That’s right, they reel you in with the cookies—pretending that they aren’t looking. However, touch one and it will come to life and transport you to another time and place. The Doctor seems to think that you’ll end up in another universe where there’s noting to eat but a bland white paste. So whatever you do, don’t snack. Snack and you’re hungry forever.

Weeping Angel Cookie Jar ($9.99)

Cookie artist Amber Spiegel (aka SweetAmbs) has a knack for creating incredible cookies and hypnotic videos to go along with them. Seriously, I’ve watched the minion cookie decoration video at least a dozen times. Where has the day gone? Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]

Oreos have transformed into yet another flavor. This time it’s choco chip, which is described as being a lot like Golden Oreos, but with some chocolate speckles throughout.

Buzzfeed reports that the new limited time Oreos, which are already in stores, evoke nostalgia for cookies of days gone by, while the taste has been compared to Cookie Crisp cereal, birthday cake and nothing (but in a “comforting way”).

The next step in cookie evolution comes to us from Yankee Girl Yummies in the form of an articulated Batman cookie.

Apparently, licorice was used to tie his joints together—but that method ultimately failed. The good news is that we are one step closer to the dream of action cookies. [click to continue…]

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.
