Mario Kart fans will be pleased to know that McDonald’s recently announced that its next round of Happy Meal toys will feature a new line of Mario Kart 8 figures. Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Donkey Kong, Yoshi and Princess Peach will all be present and accounted for–and plus you’ll get a sweet new visor too. As long as you can get over that somewhat-maniacal grin on the side of the Happy Meal box, you should be good to pick up some new Mario toys. Hooray!

super mario mint warp pipe cookies

I’m constantly amazed by the things people can do with cookies and cakes these days. As a kid, I never saw things like these Super Mario Mint Cookie Warp Pipes by Jennifer Imhoff-Dousharm and, to be honest, I feel a little deprived when it comes to my childhood.

Not only are these cookies, but Jennifer suggests you fill the pipes with ice cream, whipped cream, or your favorite dessert filling. I’m thinking Nutella and ice cream.

Head after the break to see more pictures of these adorable cookies.

When it comes to Mario’s power-ups, the fire flower is one of the best. I mean, tossing fireballs around is something I’d love to try out for myself but, sadly, that kind of activity is frowned upon. To make matters worse, I can’t seem to find any fire flowers anywhere.

But not to worry! Jennifer over on Kitchen Overlord found a way to make a fire flower of her very own. Sure, it’s not an actual flower, but her Nutella and raspberry cream cheese brioche bread fire flower is shaped like one at least… and it looks pretty darn delicious to boot. It features a whole lot of cream cheese, Nutella and raspberry spread and it’s actually simple to make on your own.

Check out her full recipe at Kitchen Overlord.

Did you know that Nintendo has been making games in one form or another since 1889? The company’s a cultural icon in Japan, and to celebrate one of the company’s most famous video games,  McDonald’s chains throughout the country are offering a line of Super Mario toys with their Happy Meals. Like usual, the US is going to be left out of the fun. What do we have going on right now? NFL-themed toys. Pfft.

Poor Mario. He’s always in the wrong castle. He’s not going to get the princess at this one, but maybe he will be able to get a tasty burger.

Young Tyler Crocket has a different vision of Mario than most.

Apparently, in his world, Mario’s a staggering drunk. But you can tell the kids that he just gets an oogy tummy from all that jumping around.

Check it out after the break.

This is the perfect snack to break out for your next game night. They’re individual pizza rolls made to look like little 1-Up mushrooms. You can fill them with any topping you like, although, it’ll be tough biting into them and destroying their precious faces.
