Chocolate is great. Strawberries are glorious. So it can (and should) be argued that when you put these two things together, you make one of the best desserts known to man. Now consider this — what if this dessert didn’t even require an oven? Yes, friends, I think we’ve hit the sweet treat jackpot. I will take all of the chocolate and strawberries, please and thank you!

If you’re a fan of genuinely creepy horror films, then you’ve probably heard about the upcoming movie from director Robert Eggers called The Witch. So far, the reviews for the film have been stellar, and audiences are delighted by the genuinely unnerving horror of The Witch. When the credits roll and the lights go up, most people believe that everything they saw was simply a work of fiction and they have nothing to worry about, right? Well, not so fast… This week, Eggers sat down to talk about his new film and exactly how he researched it. iStock As it [More]

That could have a little something to do with why museums spend lots of money and even more time perfecting the lighting that shines over their exhibits. But what if those works could be seen in the dead of night? This is a concept that artist Patrik Munchenberger explores in his paintings that completely transform in the dark and under UV light. Watch what happens to the paint in these pieces when each photosensitive work is given new life under those [More]
I have a confession to make: up until about a year ago, I’d never had cheesecake. I just didn’t think any dessert could taste good with something that, in my opinion, should only go on bagels. But boy was I wrong. Now, I don’t make cheesecake often…or, well, ever. It’s partially because making one takes time — and there’s no chocolate in the sweet treat. So there’s that. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); But thanks to this easy recipe, I can solve for both of those problems. If you love mini desserts with chocolate, here’s how to make these: Ingredients: 1 [More]
When it comes time to pick a vacation destination, you might say there are just too many places to choose from. Allow me to make a suggestion, though… Maybe instead of picking some place you’ll enjoy, choose a destination that will help you face your fears of jellyfish! I know, it sounds crazy, but just wait until I tell you about Jellyfish Lake, located on an uninhabited island just off the coast of Koror in Palau. On this small, rocky island is a saltwater lake that’s home to literally hundreds of thousands of jellyfish. Flickr / Stephen Masters Even more [More]
If you’ve left your house since winter’s arrived, you’ve probably seen shoddy attempts at window art using a textured, white medium playfully referred to as “snow paint.” While the stuff is usually reserved to half-hearted snowman paintings at grocery stores, there are a few people out there who really know what to do with it. The U.K.-based family man behind this incredible window art has a knack for creating gallery-worthy wintery scenes that will make failed grocery-store artists hang their heads in snowy shame. Snow Windows Snow Windows Snow Windows Snow Windows Snow Windows Snow Windows Snow Windows What’s even [More]
While rumble strips may never have woken you from a slumber behind the wheel, they’ve saved countless lives over the years. Late-night drives can be exhausting, especially for truckers who run on tight schedules and deadlines. But these engineers weren’t satisfied with that telltale rumbling sound. They wanted those grooves to create beautiful music, so they designed different templates to do just that. Check it out in the video below. Since 2007, engineers in various countries have adopted this awesome technique to make gorgeous highway music all over the world. They only work if drivers are going a certain speed, [More]
With summer right around the corner, it’s almost time to break out the grill and plan those BBQs. And if you’re anything like me, that means meat, beer, and everyone’s favorite — corn on the cob. But this season, instead of boiling your corn in just water, consider this epic cooking trick… All you need is some milk, butter, and corn. More butter is always better in my book.

They say that scent is closely tied to memory, and if you ever find yourself drifting back to childhood when there are brownies in the oven, you probably believe it. There’s something so satisfying about standing in a kitchen that’s full of chocolatey promise. While brownies are amazing at any age, this recipe is about to catapult those childhood memories right into adulthood. If chocolate stout brownies sound like something you’d be into, check out the recipe below! Sorry, kids. We’re not sharing these. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/beer-brownies/
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DTBT_ATF’); }); As an artist myself, I’ve received quite a bit of flack from fellow artists because I tend to work in a more realistic style. And that’s nice and annoying, because it’s hard to do. The criticism stems from the fact that this approach apparently isn’t creative enough (to which I say SHOVE IT). My personal pettiness aside, however, I guess I can see where they’re coming from. For that reason, I want to introduce nay-sayers to an artist by the name of Howard Lee. He works in a hyperrealistic style, and I dare anyone to tell [More]
