Sprinkles Has Flamin' Hot Cheetos Cupcakes — And Now We've Got Some Ideas
I ate the whole thing, so they must be onto something.
Savory-sweet desserts aren't a new thing (heck, even putting Cheetos on desserts isn't a new thing anymore), but there's nothing that perks up an office of FN staffers like a new mash-up snack. And these crazy-bright red Flamin' Hot Cheetos Cupcakes from Sprinkles were just what we needed on a Friday afternoon. They're both stuffed and topped with the crispy snack, and frosted with a white cheddar icing (basically a slightly funkier cream cheese icing). They're good! Go get one.
But as digital editors, minds addled by addicitons to figuring out Next Big Thing™ (and our phones), our brains processed the cheese and then immediately moved onto dreaming up what other crazy cupcakes we might love. Because when you find out junk food + junk food = gourmet dessert, you want the next one now.
What do you think, Sprinkles? Cool Ranch Doritos on a vanilla cupcake? Fritos on a chocolate cupcake? (We've tried this; we know it's good.) Cheez-Its on a lemon cupcake (was it only me that loved those crackers with lemonade as kid?)?
We'll leave these up to your R&D team (please conference us in with any queries). In the meantime, readers, you only have this weekend to pick up the Flamin' Hot Cheetos cupcakes and make all your Instagram followers double-tap. They're at all Sprinkles locations across the country, but will be long gone after July 29, 2018.
