  • Ice Cream Bread. As mind-boggling as it sounds, ice cream bread is very legitimate and easy to make (we know because we've tested it). With a pint of ice cream and self-rising flour, you can turn any one of your favorite flavors into a sweet, soft loaf of bread. Here's a good recipe from
  • Peanut Butter Glazed Brownie Doughnuts. Cronuts are all good, but sometimes you just want to go all-American with your desserts. Simply Scratch has you covered on that front, combining brownies and doughnuts into one peanut butter-smothered treat.
  • Cheetos macarons. What may sound like one of the most unorthodox recipes on this list is actually one of the most impressive. Christina Ha of NYC's Macaron Parlour is the mastermind behind these bougie-meets-cheesy-vending-machine-food desserts. Get the recipe at

  • Buffalo Chicken Superbowl Cupcake. The unlikely combination of buffalo wings and cupcakes sound completely unholy when you first consider it. A spicy, smokey appetizer mixed with sweet and soft baked goods shouldn't happen, but the creator of the recipe vouches for the corn bread-like cake and blue cheese-y frosting. Start practicing so that you can nail this football season returns. Get the recipe at
  • Bugle cones. Bugles are a snack food loved by all. But what if they can serve as a vessel for something greater? This recipe for "Bugle Cones" takes this iconic snack and utilizes its conical structure by filling them with a sweetened condensed milk mixture and dipping them in chocolate. Consider them mini-cannoli...am I right?
