Is it a Wonut? Is it a Doffle? These gloriously deep-fried waffle-donut hybrids are made by the batter wizards at Chicago’s Waffles Cafe and we don’t care what they finally decide to call them, so long as we get to try each and every flavor. They may be Chicago’s answer to New York’s cronut and they’re a mouthwatering reason to forgo sleeping late in favor of getting up early and indulging our insatiable sweet tooth.
According to Waffles Cafe owner Alex Hernandez, each batch of wonuts can take up to two hours to make. They’re made using various flavors of a thicker version of the cafe’s signature waffle batter, which is first cooked to perfection in a waffle iron. The three-inch doffles are then deep-fried in vegetable shortening and finally dipped in a sugar, marshmallow, maple or chocolate glaze. But wait, they’re also served covered in an assortment of additional goodies such as sprinkles, chocolate shavings or candied orange peels.
They even made vivid green Shamrock Frosting Waffle Donuts for St. Patrick’s Day.

This edible reproduction of an iconic work of art is just one piece from New York-based photographer Sarah Anne Ward’s ongoing Dessert Art project. In collaboration with food stylists Heather Meldrom and Michelle Gatton, Sarah is recreating the works of famous artists as different delicious desserts.
Visit Sarah Anne Ward’s website to check out more piece from her tantalizing Dessert Art project. In addition to Koons, Sarah has also recreated the work of Rothko, Picasso, Braque, Mondrian, and Pollock. Her future plans include pieces by Dalí and Calder. We can’t wait to see the results.

A rabbit who wears fuzzy bunny slippers and appreciates a good donut is an awesome rabbit indeed. This is Albi Rabbit, “philanthropist, observer, and consumer of all things rabbit.” Albi is 3 years old and lives happily in New York City with two human companions who have almost certainly been hypnotized by his pale blue eyes.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) has done it again. It’s another awesome exercise in overindulgence, this time in the form of a mouthwatering ice cream cone made out of a large chocolate chip cookie. WANT!
Click here to read about the trial and error process that led to the successful creation of this amazing treat so that you might go make one for yourself or, if you’re feeling generous, some other lucky person.
Based in Brighton, England, artist Kate Jenkins (previously featured here) creates awesome pieces of crocheted food art. While much of her work depicts foodstuffs from her own country, she recently created a wonderful series of classic American dishes rendered in yarn entitled Kate’s Diner.
All of Kate’s crocheted artwork looks good enough to eat or rest our heads and take a nap on, during which time we would no doubt dream about food.

Oh yum, it’s finally Girl Scout Cookie season again! We were delighted to run across an awesome grown-up treat involving our favourite Girl Scout Cookie, the incomparable Samoa.
The Drunken Spatula shared a simple recipe for a Samoa Cookie Cocktail that sounds every bit as sweet, chocolatey, caramelicious, and coconutty as the cookies themselves. And, of course, the recipe calls for an actual Samoa as part of the garnish. Click here for the recipe.
(Please remember, don’t drink Samoa cocktails and drive. These cookies pack a punch.)
