According to Ross Matthews, the Chili Over Spaghetti at Chili John's in Burbank, Calif., "is the guiltiest chili of all time in the most-amazing way."

"If you want to make a doughnut into a guilty pleasure, you shove a Pop-Tart into it," Duff Goldman says. That's just what happens at Donut Bar in San Diego. The restaurant's Big Poppa Tart features a Pop-Tart baked inside a yeast doughnut, which gets fried and filled with jam. And to finish this masterpiece? A layer of glaze and even more Pop-Tarts (this time crushed) and jam.
