Nerdie Foodie: Back to the ’90s

Nerdie Foodies! Who is ready for more 90s?? This gal is! No, seriously, I miss some of the snacks and desserts I ate as a kid. So, to keep up with the nostalgia theme, I found some fun recipes to take you back to the 90s! Let’s go!

Dunkaroos Dip

There’s just something about eating cookies with a sugary sweet dip. Dunkaroos are just one of those things where you got to play with your food by dunking cookies into the dip! Brandi Milloy, from POPSUGAR Food, shows us how to make our very own vanilla Dunkaroos dip below!

Viennetta Ice Cream Cake

Viennetta ice cream cakes were one of my favourite ice cream desserts. The combination of crunchy chocolate and melt in your mouth, creamy vanilla ice cream was a great combination. Now, you can make your own! Christy Jordan from Southern Plate shows us how! And the best part? You can change whatever flavours you want, it doesn’t have to be just chocolate and vanilla! Check out the recipe here!

Pop Tarts

In a rush for breakfast? Pop Tarts were the go-to breakfast and snack food back in the day. And this time, Gemma Stafford from Bigger Bolder Baking shows us how we can make our own Pop Tarts at home! Make a bunch of these babies in advance and you’ve got breakfast ready for the next week!

Pizza Bagel Bites

Anyone up for some finger food? These pizza bagels are perfect snacks and can be consumed in one bite! Try your hand at making these cute mini bagels and adding any topping you want! Or go for the classics. It’s really up to you! Rachael from Spache the Spatula shows us how here!

Fruit Roll Ups

Fruit Roll Ups, Fruit by the Foot – they’re essentially the same thing. I had fun as a kid eating these things, trying to see who can eat the most out of the fruit roll up without breaking it! Granted, they probably didn’t contain much real fruit, but this next recipe by Heather Jennings (from Make + Haus) shows us how here!

Hot Pockets

To-go breakfast – check! To-go lunch – check! Sometimes you just don’t have time for anything! Hot Pockets were great to have in the freezer for just those times and could be zapped in the microwave. Nealey Dozier, from The Kitchn, shares with us her recipe for Hot Pockets, the grown-up version of prosciutto and cheddar cheese. But I’m sure you can put whatever fillings you want in there. Check out the recipe here!

Rice Krispies Squares

These are gooey and deliciously sweet treats! Making your own Rice Krispies squares with the Rice Krispies cereal were just as easy to make as it is easy to eat! In case you’ve forgotten how or you’ve never made them before, Cookies & Cups show us how to make our own Rice Krispies squares at home here!

There you have it folks. For those of us who grew up in the 90s, these delicious eats are a great reminder of our childhoods, back when cellphones were non-existent and playing outside and walking to school by ourselves were the norm. Here is to the 90s!

‘Til next time,

Stay nerdalicious!
