NGE: Danny Phantom Brownies

Gotta eat ’em all ’cause he’s Danny Phantom.

Danny Phantom was a pretty rad show about a dude in high school who accidentally turned into a half ghost and he had to deal with his ghost hunter parents along with other teenage nonsense. It was a fun show, and awhile back someone suggested that I make something Danny Phantom themed for Nerds Gotta Eat. And here we are.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Chosen by the Ocean Cupcakes

Fangirls, if you follow my personal accounts anywhere, you know that I am obsessed with Moana. It’s an absolutely gorgeous movie that features a girl who was chosen by the ocean to grab a demigod and save the world. So when it came out on Tuesday, I was inspired to make some cupcakes that were reminiscent of the movie.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Homeworld Gem Cupcakes

Sure, the Crystal Gems will always save the day, but they’d be super bored if it weren’t for the Homeworld Gems making things more difficult, right? I chose my three favorite Homeworld Gems; Jasper, Peridot, and Yellow Diamond and decided there would be nothing better than cupcakes devoted to them. I know Peridot is technically a Crystal Gem now, but whatever. She’s always going to be a troublemaker in my mind, so it’s all good.

Nerds Gotta Eat: Mean Girl Bars

Another delicious, gluten free, recipe from Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck! I made these for Fangirl’s Night Out and work a little while back, and they went over wonderfully! I highly recommend them, but be wary of allergies.


To make some Mean Girl Bars, you’ll need:
3/4c roughly chopped nuts (I used walnuts this time)
1/2c creamy peanut butter
1/2c honey
1c gluten free rolled oats
1/3c shredded coconut (I used almonds instead)
1/2tsp cinnamon
1/2tsp salt
1/2c chocolate chips (the recipe doesn’t call for it, but chocolate is great)


Line an 8×8 pan with tin foil, and spray with cooking spray. Toast your rolled oats and coconut/almonds by putting them in a big pan on low heat and stirring them. Be careful, while doing this, because it’s really easy to have the heat just slightly too high, and burn your stuff. So keep it low, in a big pan, and watch it like a hawk! Mix up your other ingredients, then add your toasted stuff.


Press them into your pan, making sure they’re all spread evenly, and put them in the fridge for a couple hours to chill. When I took mine out of the fridge (4 hours later), they were still kind of soft. So I cut them up into individual bars, wrapped them individually in wax paper, and put them in my container. This way, everyone could get their own without getting all goopy on each other’s stuff, making cleanup easier!


I loved these bars. They’re a good texture, quick and easy to make, and absolutely delicious. But since they’re loaded with nuts, they can be a bit dangerous at parties. Make sure that they’re labelled when you bring them places, so people know. Keep everyone safe!
