Flamin’ Hot Ice Cream and More Exciting Creations

When we heard that Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Ice Cream was a thing, we couldn’t believe it — and do you blame us? Honestly, we never really imagined combining Flamin’ Hot Cheetos with any type of dessert. Whatsoever. Sure, we’re all for those sweet-and-spicy, hot-and-cold combinations, but we never pictured Cheetos being a big component of any dish. Perhaps we were wrong to ignore it for so long. Here are a few recipes that just might surprise you! Make them today in your Liv Ahwatukee apartment!


This is a pretty simple Hot Cheetos cheesecake recipe. You’ll need graham cracker crumbs, hot sauce, melted butter, sugar, cream cheese, cornstarch, lime zest, eggs, and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Click the above link for the full instructions.


This recipe comes from kara’s couture cakes. Here’s what the creator has to say about the recipe: “Oh yes, I went there! These savory, spicy, sweet, not-so-classic French macarons are digging the Flamin' Hot Cheetos craze! Nope. They wouldn't be my first choice either, but I gotta say... They are AWESOME!”

For this recipe, you’ll need the following ingredients: powdered sugar, almond flour, Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, egg whites, cream of tartar, sugar, white chocolate, and heavy cream.

Ice Cream

Here’s the ultimate test: a recipe for something that’s supposed to be cold, and something known for its hot flavor — combined for one ultimate experience. Hot Cheetos ice cream is not something we would’ve imagined people actually ate, so you can imagine our surprise (and somewhat excitement) to learn that this recipe actually exists. Click the above link for full instructions.

We hope you enjoy making these fun treats in your Cambridge, MA apartment. Before we leave you, here’s a fun fact about the history of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos: Richard Montañez, a one-time-janitor at Frito-Lay, dusted some Cheetos with his own homemade chili powder. After sharing them with his friends and coworkers, his life took a turn that he never expected.

What can we take away from this? We think that Richard’s story of success is a great example for us to not be afraid to try new things. Okay, so maybe making Flamin’ Hot Cheetos ice cream won’t boost your career, but something else might. We hope this blog post (specifically these recipes) inspire you to continue to try new things in 2019. You never know what might happen. Thanks for reading! We hope you have a great month in Phoenix, AZ!
