Butter Sculptures

Now we have seen some interesting sculptures before, but none quite as heart-stopping as this collection of butter sculptures by sculptor Jim Victor and his wife Marie Pelton. Let’s just hope the scukptures are in an air conditioned room so they won’t melt, that or at a lobster-eating-fest in Maine. As I was writing this I [...]

Deep Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly Shot Cupcakes

First, cook peanut butter cupcakes. Then hollow out the centers. Partially fill the holes with jelly, the deep fry the cupcakes. Once they’ve cooled off, spread peanut butter frosting on them and press a shot glass into each one. Pour into the shotglasses peanut butter and jelly flavored vodka.

Chocolate Chip Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pumpkin Pie Donut

I’ve long dreamed of eating a donut stuffed with sweetened peanut butter. But this concoction by the California donut shop chain Psycho Donuts may top that. It’s filled with pumpkin pie and capped with maple flavoring and crushed graham crackers. What new donut design would you create, if given the chance? Official Website -via That’s Nerdalicious!

Deep Fried Dollar Bill

Everything’s better deep fried, right? Butter, beer, lattes — everything! Especially money. Alex, this is how I want to get paid from now on. Maybe dust it with a bit of powdered sugar while you’re at it. Link -via That’s Nerdalicious!

Fried Butter on a Stick
