Slim Jims Get Transformed into Meatball Cake Pops

Slim Jim Meatballs

Forget about spaghetti-stuffed meatballs (even though they’re crazy delish), because we’ve discovered a mega curveball in this tasty game. George Duran of YouTube’s Hungry concocted a variety made from Slim Jims. Genius? Aww yeah.

Besides being a handy option for eating meat on-the-go, who knew SJ’s could be eaten any other way?! George did. The niblets are a mixture of eggs, breadcrumbs, milk, onion, parsley, pork sausauge and, of course, Mr. Slim Jim.

So whether you’ve got a few extra snack packs laying around, or you don’t want to spring for a super expensive slab of meat, Slim Jims could be the key to tonight’s gourmet-esque dinner.

Check out how these bad boys are made below:

Inside Out S’mores, Just Because

We’ve seen s’mores take many forms over the years. We’ve seen a S’mores Quesadilla,Halloween Candy Bark S’moresDeep Fried S’moresPumpkin S’Mores, you name it….and then blogger George Duran took a frighteningly simple and inverted route, and created the Inside Out S’mores.

The only worry I have is, by inverting the traditional s’more, you throw out the utility of the graham cracker. What’s supposed to keep my hand from getting sticky? The somewhat safe casing of the graham cracker is now buried deep inside two layers of potentially messy ingredients: chocolate and gooey marshmallow.

Here’s how Duran explains his thought process and subsequent creation. I won’t try to summarize, because it would only be a terrible disservice:

Often, sitting by a fireside gets you thinking about things. Sometimes it’s about your natural existence, sometimes it’s about inventions that seem pure genius at that moment, but insanely stupid the next day. This isn’t one of those genius moments. It’s a genuinely amazing idea of turning the classic campfire treat, into a Dali-esque concoction!
