Friday Favorites: Nerdy Nummies

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

It’s June, and I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer months (well, if you live in an area where there is a summer). Summer brings thoughts of cookouts and all sorts of baking. A while ago, I had made a post about Rosanna Pansino and her fun YouTube channel dedicated to nerdy recipes. Here are a few of my favorites today!

Pokemon MooMoo Milkshakes

What’s better than a nice cold milkshake on a hot summer day? Not much, except for maybe a chocolate milkshake. Named after the iconic treat that was first featured in the second generation of Pokemon games, MooMoo milkshakes are a simple treat to make.

Hyrule Rupee Cookies

Cookies and milk go hand in hand, so why not have some delicious fruit-flavored sugar cookies to go with those milkshakes? Rosanna creates three different kinds of sugar cookies to match the various pieces of Hyrule currency from the Legend of Zelda franchise. These cookies look so cute, too!

Super Mario Question Block Surprise Cake

 

Surprise cakes look like so much fun, with all the candy or prizes spilling out when the cake is cut! While this cake may be a bit time-consuming to make, it’d be the perfect dessert for a fun video game night with friends!

Nerdy Nummies

Double Jump Kris MiiWhen we were younger, Rachel and I always found cartoon or video game food to look so yummy. In fact, I think it was due to Bugs Bunny that I had willingly tried raw carrots to eat them like he did. The carrots were awful, but I found that cheetos looked similar enough!

This post is about someone who actually creates geek-inspired food!

Rosanna Pansino is the YouTuber behind Nerdy Nummies. On her channel, she mostly posts videos with all sorts of tasty recipes from drinks to cookies to cake to pizza and beyond. All of these recipes tend to tie back to some geeky topic, like Batman, Power Rangers, and Pokemon.

Rachel and I have been watching her channel for a few years, and we’ve always enjoyed seeing her creations (and usually getting hungry while doing so). She also tends to do collab videos with other YouTubers, bringing them in to help with recipes or to do a food-related challenge. Her challenges usually involve her trying a variety of flavors of some food (like doughnuts, pop-tarts, and chocolate) while blindfolded, but there have been plenty of other kinds of challenges as well (like pictionary!).

Ro is adorably petite, and she’s always so cheerful in her videos. At times she’s a little silly, and it’s totally relaxing to watch some of her videos after a long day at work. Rachel and I have tried her Butterbeer milkshake recipe, a homage to the Harry Potter universe. It was simple to follow and create, and it was a wicked sweet treat!

Do you watch Rosanna Pansino? Have you ever tried any of her recipes?
