Preacher Cookies Recipe: NO-BAKE CHOCOLATE DELIGHTS!

They're called preacher cookies because when the preacher would stop by your house unannounced, you could quickly whip up a tasty snack for him using ingredients already in the pantry! These no-bake chocolate peanut butter oat gems were a staple for us at school bake sales in 1980s Virginia. They really are easy to make and their unique flavor and texture will leave a lasting impression on hungry houseguests.

1 stick (8 tablespoons) salted butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 cup peanut butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Line two baking sheets with parchment or wax paper.

In your favorite pot over medium heat, bring the butter, sugar, cocoa and milk to a full boil. Boil for an additional 1 and a half minutes then immediately remove from the heat. Stir in peanut butter and vanilla then add the oats. Stir well to combine.

Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto the prepared baking sheets and let sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes until cooled and hardened.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. These cookies taste better the longer they sit. Avoid making them on rainy or humid days because the cookies won't set up as well. Enjoy!

McDonald's Szechuan Sauce: VIRAL RICK & MORTY CRAZE RETURNS!

Rick and Morty fans rejoice! McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce is finally available nationwide. But does it live up to the hype? We scored some tubs of the elusive dipping sauce and put it to the test.

Upon first bite, we were hooked. The Asian sauce tastes instantly familiar with a base flavor of sweet soy sauce and strong notes of ginger, sesame and garlic throughout. We absolutely adored the delectable flavor which tasted astounding with a fried Chicken McNugget. At one point we looked up and caught our lunch companion licking his tub clean!

This just might be the best dipping sauce currently available so zoom on over to your local McDs and try it for yourself while supplies last!

Brach's Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Rabbits: BUNNY SHAPED LAWN TREATS!

Brach's is hoppin' to it this Easter season with their very own Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Rabbits, and we're completely fascinated to say the least. Not only do these seasonal treats look, erm, interesting, but the flavor is entirely unique as well!

The packaging and presentation of Brach's Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Rabbits is colorful, fun and what you might expect from a traditional Easter chocolate, but once you open the wrapper what you discover inside is hilariously terrifying! Each finger-sized "rabbit" has a mutated body and a creepy nondescript face. Actually, they look like what your puppy might leave on the grass if you know what we mean.

The flavor is surprising as well. Besides super sweet milk chocolate, we picked up notes of vanilla, fruity melon and toasted almonds. The texture is pleasantly creamy and fluffy with a substantial chewiness.

We couldn't stop eating these weird little creatures as we tried to decipher what we were looking at and tasting -- and we totally had fun doing it!

Diet Coke has gotten an upgrade with four new exciting flavors and a new can design. We found these drinks at a 7-Eleven and tried 'em all out just for you!


The first thing we noticed when cracking open a can of Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke is that it smells a lot like a Crush Orange Soda. This cola has a pleasant, mellow orange candy flavor throughout and we also picked up a super slight Creamsicle aftertaste. We really liked this one!


This is the Arnold Palmer of the group because Ginger Lime Diet Coke tastes like half ginger ale mixed with half Diet Coke, all with a lime candy aftertaste. Of the four new flavors, this one is the most subtle and least exciting. We still enjoyed it though.


Feisty Cherry Diet Coke smells like a classic cherry cola right off the bat. The flavor is "feisty" indeed as each sip comes with a pleasant peppery bite that lingers in the back of the throat. While this new variety is probably the least creative, the boldness of the wild cherry flavor is surprising and thoroughly enjoyable.


Twisted Mango Diet Coke really smells like a juicy, sweet mango upon first crack. The smooth mango flavor is impressive and boldly shines through with each sip. It reminds us a lot of the mango flavor of Japanese fruit candy Hi-Chew. Of all the new varieties, this is the most unique and exciting.


Plain Diet Coke gets a revamped bullet can design as well, but the iconic flavor remains intact. It's the brilliant subtlety of cola flavor that still makes this our favorite version of DC. We predict classic Diet Coke will remain the top selling variety of this new repackaging.

Want to impress your guests with something refreshingly light and unique? Try serving them Fruit Punch Diet Coke!

In a chilled pitcher combine equal parts Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke, Twisted Mango Diet Coke, Feisty Cherry Diet Coke and Ginger Lime Diet Coke. Serve the bubbly elixir over ice with your favorite bar spirit!

Taco Bell Nacho Fries BellGrande: SNACK PARTY SUPREME!

Taco Bell's Nacho Fries have already taken the fast food world by storm, and now Taco Bell is firing up the party with NEW Nacho Fries BellGrande!

The fries by themselves are super tasty with a bold seasoning and battered, crisp texture. Aside from salt, we picked up hints of paprika, onion and sugar, which all tasted great when paired with hot Nacho Cheese Sauce.

For the BellGrande, Taco Bell amps up the flavor by adding generous portions of seasoned ground beef, cool reduced-fat sour cream and fresh diced tomato. We were pretty tripped out (in a good way) by the combination of flavors and textures and really savored the experience. We tried the Nacho Fries BellGrande with Taco Bell's Mild, Hot, Fire and Diablo sauces and found that each one added a different, complementary flavor (classic Mild being our fav).

We give two big finger-licking thumbs up to this new treat from Taco Bell!
