Do you love eating out? Do you like to try the latest in food trends? I am sure you know these chefs behind these restaurants: Michael Voltaggio (INK Restaurant), Roy Choi (Kogi Food Truck) and Nguyen Tran running circles as an underground phenom behind Starry Kitchen! These three chefs are part ofa web series of videos built around how to incorporate a secret ingredient into a “Snack Hack”. Each chef creates his own version of a snack hack in their signature style by deconstructing an Oreo into something “brand new”.

Oreo Impulse Hack
5 Oreo Cookies
1 Snack-sized bag (1.75 oz.) of peanuts
1 Snack-sized (2.75 oz.) slice of pound cake
½ Cup diet cherry soda

1. Soften 5 Oreo cookies in soda for 30 seconds to 1 minute
2. Remove cookies and add to bowl (12 oz.). Save soda for later
3. Crush peanuts and tear pound cake. Add to bowl with cookies and mix together. Add more soda to mixture if needed.
4. Flip mixture onto plate and enjoy.

Tip: Line bowl with plastic wrap for easy release.

‘Snack Hacks’ combines the cleverness of hacking with the creativity that is happening in food culture, and Oreo wants people to come up with their own ‘Hack’ creation.
