9 Horrifying Holiday Recipes From Pinterest

By  | 

Pinterest is funny: On one end of the recipe board spectrum, you've got foodies and health nerds pinning kale and chia seed salads alongside artisanal granola bars and gluten-free truffle muffins. On the other, the general aesthetic seems to be “creative ways to assemble processed food.” And as the holiday season escalates, Pinterest seems more full than ever of gross recipes. In just one perusal of the general “Food & Drink” Pinterest boards yesterday, I turned up …

Gorilla bread … From the Queen of gross food, Paula Deen, gorilla bread consists of a tube of refrigerated biscuits smothered in sugar, cinnamon, butter, brown sugar, cream cheese and walnuts.  (Via)

Bacon Wrapped Lil' Smokies With Brown Sugar and Butter … Yes, that's right — meat, wrapped around meat, baked in a pool of butter (in case there wasn't already enough saturated fat in this dish) and sugar. (Via)

Not to be outdone, of course, by this Mini sausage wreath … (Via)

Candy bar dip … Cream cheese, butter, confectioners sugar, brown sugar and chocolate chips. What could you possibly be dipping in this? Fruit, at least, I hope? (Via)

Christmas Morning Cheese Danish … Pillsbury crescent rolls layered in cream cheese, eggs and sugar and covered in sugar and milk. (Via)

Dorito Chicken Casserole … “The most work is that involved in this casserole is cooking and shredding the chicken,” writes its creator. No shit. That's because the other ingredients are snack chips, canned soup and packaged seasoning. (Via)

Cake batter blondies …Why use processed cake mix to make cake when you could also add heavy whipping cream, white chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles to make these? (Via)

Cinnamon roll cookies … Just some flour, butter, sugar, cream and eggs covered in butter and sugar covered in cream and sugar. (Via)

Biscuit Doughnuts … Why are Pillsbury crescent rolls and biscuits such a popular base for gross recipes? This one calls for taking the (already not so great for you) Pillsbury biscuits, tossing them in sugar and then frying. (Via)
