Consistently creating the craziest, most caloric yet delicious combinations, and sharing their favorite eats in OC, LA and all over the U.S. of A. with their millions of followers.

Remember those ever-popular microwavable grab-and-go snacks we used to snag out of the freezer right when we walked in the door after school...? Or indulging in the simpler things like peanut butter, chips, and popcorn? Thanks to the following innovative concoctions, those afternoon eats will never be the same. 

TOTINO'S STUFFED NACHOS WAFFLE QUESADILLA

As if those microwavable Totino's Stuffed Nacho bites weren't snack-worthy enough, this quesa-waffle-dilla creation is stuffed with them, plus topped with additional goodness and is sure to blow your tastebuds away. Your average quesadilla will reach new heights... fill it with cheese, Totino's Stuffed Nachos, ground beef, and throw it in a waffle iron for truly melty afternoon snacking. 

 

DIY POTATO CHIPS IN THE MICROWAVE

The beauty of the microwave is simple... it's fast and it's easy. These chips are the perfect poster child for the microwave's resume. These thinly sliced potatoes take only 3-5 minutes to cook, and yes, they DO get crunchy in the microwave! Those extra few minutes of you not being a couch potato will leave both you and tummy satisfied.

 

POPROCK POPCORN

It's time to release your inner-kid with this Poprock Popcorn. Whether you intend to share this with an actual kid or not, this stuff is too fun and easy not to try on for size. 

 

Peanut Butter Mug Cake With Peanut Butter Reddi-wip Topping

Foodbeast and their friend, butcher, baker, pizza-rap maker Josh Elkin thinks you should party with his Peanut Butter Mug Cake. Better yet, Peanut Butter Mug Cake with Peanut Butter Reddi-wip Topping (because the butter, the better). And better-butter yet, a Peanut Butter Mug Cake with Peanut Butter Reddi-wip topping that you can make at home. This recipe was created as part of ConAgra's #GreatAmericanCookIn Challenge, a month-long campaign challenging people to stay in and cook for one week rather than opting to go out. Quick, easy, and ready in a matter of minutes, this straightforward and delicious microwave mug cake is a literal cakewalk.
