Non-nutritive Food Hacks
When baking box cake, substitute coffee for water in chocolate cake mix. You can also add a few spoonfuls of coffee grounds too.
~Cake Mix Cookies
You can make cookies instead of cake by changing the proportions of the called for ingredients. For one box of cake mix, add ½ cup – 105 grams of melted coconut oil or butter and one egg. Combine ingredients, and spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet and cook for 9-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Try adding some chocolate-y candy pieces: (yolo anyone?)
~Cake and Ice Cream Cones
Making cupcakes? Try baking them in premade ice cream cones.
The flat bottomed Styrofoam-esque ones are the easiest to start with.
If you construct a holder, you can use the coveted sugar cones.
Keep in mind, the flat bottomed ones are easier to hand out or display for group events.
I recommend skipping frosting. Fill the cones half way with the batter; there will be a little room to balance a scoop of ice cream perfectly.
~Top Ramen Scramble
Crumble 2 packages of Ramen, brown in a skillet
Throw away the MSG flavor packets
Add 1 to 1 ½ cups of water (375 mL), stir to absorb
Add chopped rosemary, oregano, sage, etc.
Swirl some soy sauce on top

Chopped green onion

This is the 'gateway sushi'. It is definitely junk food.
Start with a can of Spam, sliced, then fry in teriyaki sauce. Place this atop a small egg sized ball of vinegar sushi rice. Encircle with a strip of Nori paper and moisten to secure.
