The Latest Trend For Your Inner Fat Kid: Circus Animals

There are some REALLY exciting things going on right now if you’re in a deep, committed relationship with sugar like I am.

Exhibit One:¬†Grown fresh from the rainbow/unicorn creations trend everywhere, this Braum’s Circus Animal Cookie Sundae is about the fattest and most wonderful thing I’ve ever eaten. Blood glucose levels be damned, I didn’t even feel guilty.

Luckily you can also by the ice cream flavor as a standalone in a 2 pint carton, and cut out a few hundred calories you’d get in the sundae with the same level of enjoyment.

After a little “research” I discovered there are oh, about a million super-cute, delicious looking recipes involving this trend:

Frosted Animal Cookie Cheesecake

Circus Animal Popcorn

Circus Animal Cookie Dough Truffle Bars

Circus Animal Cookie Truffles (AKA Cake Balls)
