A friend of mine recently asked for help brainstorming some good DIY junk food ideas for a party she's going to in a few weeks. We had so much fun finding recipes for things like homemade snickers, oreos, and pop-tarts that I just had to share! Have you ever tried making anything like this at home? • Homemade Pop-Tarts from Joanne Chang's Flour Bakery - These have been hanging out on my list ever since we first posted about them last year. • Homemade Mallomars from The Kitchn - A bit labor intensive to make these, but so very worth it. • Cheddar Crackers from Home Cooking in Montana - We didn't believe we could make a Gold Fish-esque cracker at home until we tried these. • Homemade Candy Bars from Chow.com - Peanut butter cups, snickers bars, almond joys, twix...hoooo boy! • Vanilla Snack Cakes from King Arthur Flour - These are your basic Twinkies, but probably several orders of magnitude better. • Homemade Oreos from Smitten Kitchen - So cute! All you need is a glass of milk. • Deliciously Dandy Ding Dongs from Tasty Kitchen - These are always a winner in my book. Any others that you've made at home? Or wish you could make at home?!
