If you’re looking way to experience 4th of July fireworks that’s less risky for your fingers and a whole lot more delicious, look no further. Our all-time favourite Dessert Detective Jessie Oleson, aka Cakespy (previously featured here), recently shared her awesome recipe for Explosively Delicious Fourth of July Cookies.
The not-so-secret explosive ingredient is Pop Rocks. In this recipe they’re used in both the cookie dough itself and as a garnish.
"This not only makes them crackle like fireworks but also pays homage to that other all-consuming american obsession: truly trashy candy (and I say this in the most loving way possible)."
We’d like to add that you can dramatically transform this recipe in three different, but equally awesome ways by substituting the Pop Rocks with Sizzling Bacon Candy, Explosing Wasabi Candy or Exploding Popcorn Candy.
The only thing better than a bowl full of chocolate chip cookies is chocolate chip cookies served in a bowl that’s actually MADE of chocolate chip cookies. Beth Klosterboer of Hungry Happenings created this awesome chocolate chip cookie serving bowl. It’s easy to make and even easier to devour.
Our sweet treat-sense is tingling! First Lou Lou P’s Delights created a batch of wicked Alien Macarons and then the retina-searingly unforgettable Burt Reynolds Éclair. Today the Leeds-based bakery presented these awesome "Your friendly neighbourhood Spiderman" Macarons. No molds were used to create each tiny Spidey. They’re handmade, hand-painted and completely edible. We’re willing to bet they’re also 100% delicious.

Fast food is already pretty unhealthy, so why not substitute that cheeseburger, milkshake and fries with a perfect (and perfectly edible) replica made of cookies?
This awesome cookie meal was made by the older sister of Japanese Twitter user あかり who added that her sister, “Can make anything out of cookies.” We don’t doubt it for a second and hope we get to see more of her tantalizingly tricksy cookie creations.
One sign of genius is taking something that already seems perfect and making it even better. Milk and cookies are a match made in heaven, but Dominique Ansel, New York City-based pastry chef and creator of the legendary cronut, elevated the classic pairing to mouthwatering awesomeness when he created these Chocolate Chip Cookie Milk Shots.
They’re shots of cold milk served in freshly baked chocolate chip cookie glasses and we can’t stop staring at them. If you’re going to be at SXSW 2014, you’ll have the opportunity to try them on Sunday, March 9th during an Allison+Partners-sponsored event.
Considering the epic lines that still form in New York for cronuts, let’s hope Cookie Monster isn’t attending SXSW. If he’s there, no one else stands a chance of getting any Milk and Cookie Shots for themselves.
Mike from Semi Sweet (previously featured here) created these awesome Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed cookies as a geektastic Valentine’s Day treat. He even decorated one of the heart-shaped Starfleet uniform cookies with Worf’s Klingon baldric.

Just in time for Christmas, Jason Freeny (previously featured here) has turned his artistic dissection skills from toys back to sweets to reveal the internal anatomy of a gingerbread man with an awesome new anatomy schematic print entitled Gingerbread Man Dissected.

Rebecca The Cookie Architect and 29 fellow cookie bakers collaborated on this awesome Gingerbread House of Cards. Inspire by architects Charles and Ray Eames’ House of Cards Game, Rebecca created gingerbread card pieces and mailed one to each participating cookie baker with instructions to decorate both sides however they pleased while sticking to a holiday-related theme. The completed pieces were sent back to Rebecca who then assembled the edible masterpiece.
We included a few other favourite gingerbread card pieces here, but you can see them all if you visit The Cookie Architect’s Facebook album.

"The Death Star, a symbol of the greatest evil, built by hearts of cake that is said to make the human kind. It took 12 people to build Love Star out of about 1,200 cookies. It took friendship, cooperation and sense of purpose. The project is seen as a metaphor in the challenge to all the world’s people must practice love for each other to maintain and build up our planet."

Every year it seems that holiday decorations hit the stores earlier and earlier. The remaining bags of Halloween candy have barely been put on sale before artificial trees and shiny garlands are filling the next aisle over. Annabel de Vetten of the Conjurer’s Kitchen (previously featured here) created a deliciously macabre batch of Conjoined Gingerdead Men cookies that feel like a wickedly festive bridge between two otherwise disparate holiday seasons.
It’s Weird and Wonderful Holiday Treat Day on Geyser of Awesome!
