Rice Krispie treats are a delicious dessert that leave your teeth coated in layers of sugar, and when you add donuts into the mix, forget about it. Amy of Oh Bite It took Krispy Kreme’s classic glazed donuts, chopped them up, and mixed them into the Rice Krispie treat mixture. She then cut the coated bites back into donut shapes with cutters. They look rich but glorious.

These ridiculously cute Jawa brownies are the work of Yummy Crumble (who also made that Sarlacc bunt cake we posted last month) and they’re perfect for the Christmas season. They’re super easy to make and start with your favorite boxed brownie mix. Once they’re baked, let them cool and use a Jawa cookie cutter to cut them out and give them their faces. Melt some chocolate flavored with a little peppermint extract, add yellow icing eyes, and you’ve got the cutest brownies in the galaxy.

A cast iron skillet is a useful tool to have in your kitchen arsenal (bonus: it doubles as a weapon). When you’re not using it to bash heads, consider whipping up a pizzadilla. J. Kenji López-Alt of Serious Eats was inspired by a Redditor to throw a tortilla in the cast iron, add on sauce and cheese, and put a second tortilla on the top. He finished off the pizzadilla by cooking both sides and then adding toppings and sticking it under a broiler. Yum.
