Wacky Recipe Wednesday Week No. 8

Bringing you recipes that make you say, ‘Huh? What?’
“Wait…what are you making?”

“Wait…what are you making?” ​

Welcome to The Daily Meal’s Wacky Wednesday recipe roundup, a series where we reach out to our talented Culinary Content Network of food bloggers and request their strangest, weirdest, and most interesting recipes — creations so “wacky” they make you pause and ask, “Wait…what are you making?”

“Wacky” could mean a strange flavor pairing or interesting cooking method, or it could mean a dish has an absurd presentation or ridiculous background story. No one really knows what craziness Wacky Wednesday will rake in, but I can tell you this: We are definitely having some fun with it.

Check out this week’s wackiest recipes:

Frito Caramel Cupcakes


When the Mad HausFrau lived in Germany, Fritos were at the top of her list of things she missed about the States. In homage to her favorite guilty pleasure, she whipped up a batch of decadent Frito cupcakes (yes there are crushed chips in the batter) with caramel centers, caramel buttercream, and a Frito crumb dusting. Get the recipe here.
