Let’s face it: Anyone can serve boring vanilla ice cream, or regular old chocolate brownies. But what about the desserts that constantly get left out of the holiday party circuit? They need to be eaten, too! Next time you’re whipping something up, try a dessert that’ll keep your guests on their toes (and maybe freak them out a little).
Here are some awesome dessert recipes that are just a little off-beat, but remain absolutely delicious.
1.) Unicorn Barf
Don’t let this treat’s imaginative name hold you back from enjoying it. Unicorn barf
is made using cereal marshmallows and melted regular marshmallows.
2.) Spaghettieis – aka Ice Cream Spaghetti
If you’ve ever wanted to have spaghetti for dessert, now you can! This ice cream recipe
mimics the look of the pasta, complete with vanilla noodles and strawberry sauce!
3.) Popcorn Ice Cream
There are a lot of weird ice creams out there, but this one sounds like the most delicious. Popcorn ice cream
is made using popcorn and sugar-infused milk and butter.
4.) Jell-O Shark Tank
As far as weird desserts go, this one definitely makes me feel uneasy. Give your guests a sense of peril with this awesome shark tank Jell-O drink
5.) Bleeding Cake Ball Brains
You don’t have to be a zombie to have a hankering for some good ol’ brains. These cake balls
shaped like brains and filled with jelly are disturbing but delicious.
6.) Chocolate Pasta
If you’ve ever looked at pasta and thought, “I wish that was chocolate pasta,” give this chocolate spaghetti
7.) Voodoo Dolls Doughnuts
Tired of boring Christmas cookies at holiday parties? Bring the ultimate ice breaker, next time: voodoo doll doughnuts
8.) Creepy Jell-O Globes
9.) Disturbing Coconut Kiwi Panna Cotta
This sweet dessert may look
unappetizing, but one bite and it’ll open your eyes to a whole other dessert world. See the recipe here
10.) Chocolate-Covered Pickles
While not particularly unusual looking, a chocolate-covered pickle
does hold a certain mystery: Why would someone put these two things together if it wasn’t absolutely delicious, right?
11.) Chocolate-Covered Squid
Speaking of weird things to cover in chocolate – how about some chocolate-covered squid
? That’s right, someone decided that the perfect thing to put on top of boiled squid was melted chocolate. And who knows? Maybe they were right.
12.) Rice Crispy Critter Treats
While some desserts only pretend to be made of creepy crawlies, this one actually goes the distance. But, when it comes to rice crispies covered in cooked worms
, don’t knock it ’til you try it.
