Announcement: Food.com is Becoming Hellafreshrecipeez.com!

Y’all ready for our recipes to become even #fre$her? After seeing our cool new site redesign, our homies at Def Jam Records decided to drop a fat stack to buy us out. And since “Food.com” wasn’t really their style, we will soon become Hellafreshrecipeez.com, the rap world’s first and only premiere recipe site, specializing in fresh food to go with your even fresher tunes.

Ever find yourself wondering what Kanye or Jay-Z eat for breakfast? What Puff Daddy’s go-to dinner party recipes are? If Eminem prefers his chicken roasted or fried?

Wonder no more, shawty! The new site will feature guest posts from all of your hip-hop faves. From Lil’ Wayne’s favorite places to eat after a gig, to Drake’s nanna’s famous lasagna recipe, we got all the content to help you keep your kitchen tight.

So, if you like big buns and cannot lie and love that cake cake cake, pop some bottles and get to cookin’ with our help. We found you Miss New Foodie—over at Hellafreshrecipeez.com. Peace.

Finally: A Peanut Butter Cup Big Enough to Fulfill Our Chocolate Cravings For Life

If you think you may have the world’s biggest sweet tooth, we might have found just the right treat for you. The Candy Factory, a Los Angeles chocolate shop, just broke the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest peanut butter cup with a truly epic 440 pound creation.

The champion chocolate cup, which had to be molded by the team of 12 in a kiddie pool after workers couldn’t find a big enough bowl, used a whopping 320 pounds of chocolate and 120 pounds of peanut butter, demolishing the old record of a downright puny 250 pounds.

Once Guinness officially verifies the record, the massive candy concoction will be broken up and sold for $25 a piece, with proceeds going to charity.

In case you’re not quite ready to plunge into a pool-sized cup of chocolate and peanut butter, we suggest satisfying your sweet tooth by making your own miniature versions at home.\

This New 3D Pancake Printer Will Change the Way You Do Sundays

Want to wow your friends and family with your crazy pancake art skills, but don’t have the time… or talent? This nifty new device is about to be your breakfast BFF.

A 3D printer called the “PancakeBot” can turn any image into customized pancakes, and all you have to provide is a flip of the spatula. Currently being sold on Kickstarter for $179, the device is constructed of a printer that squirts pancake batter in distinct patterns onto a low-heat griddle. Users can upload any image to the machine, and it in turn follows a digital pattern to make your customized pancake dreams a reality.

The machine is currently being produced and tested, with a July 2015 launch date, and will eventually retail in stores for $300. But the project has already been wildly successful on Kickstarter, raising over $300,000 of the original $50,000 goal, with almost two weeks still left to snag the device at a lower price. Now that’s a lot of pancakes.

If you’re craving pancakes now (we sure are!) try out our top pancake recipes, no 3D technology required.

Sriracha Lovers Rejoice! A New Line of Saucy Snacks Is On the Way

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard a lot about every spice-lover’s recent obsession:  Sriracha (that is, if you aren’t already totally obsessed yourself). The ubiquitous red chili sauce has been popping up everywhere lately, from Taco Bell’s Sriracha Quesarito, to Heinz’ Sriracha Ketchup, to a slightly cringe-worthy Sriracha beer. And soon, a new line of snacks made with the authentic product will hitting shelves near you and fulfilling the dreams of the sauce’s dedicated devotees.

The snacks, which are a collaboration between Huy Fun, the world’s number one producer of the hot sauce, and Pop! Gourmet Foods will be the first Sriracha-flavored products to actually be made with the iconic rooster sauce, rather than an imitator.

Along with Sriracha popcorn, already available in stores ($3.99), they’ll also be rolling out Sriracha potato chips on April 8, with hummus, croutons, and tortilla chips on their way in the near future.

And in case that wasn’t enough options for you, they’ll also be releasing a dehydrated powder form of Sriracha on April 20, whcih can be used as a spice on anything and everything.

Need a drink to go with all those savory treats? Try a perfectly paired Sriracha Bloody Mary to keep the sauce a-flowin’.
