Mountain Dew Doritos cupcakes are America in dessert form

Connor the cupcake might need to up his Tinder game, as there's a new cupcake in town with two game-changing ingredients: Mountain Dew and Doritos.

Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies (New Yorkers might recognize her from those ubiquitous YouTube subway ads) made the bizarro treats after her fans demanded them. To best capture the essence of Mountain Dew, she mixed lemon cake mix, lemon pudding mix, and the soda together for the batter -- and then doubled down on Dew by whipping up a Mountain Dew cream cheese icing. Doritos served as decoration, with some of the cupcakes getting a crushed-up garland of the chips, and others getting that plus an entire Dorito. Should you test them out -- and you will -- let Rosanna know what you think of her handiwork in the video comments.
