(Standard disclaimer: This post references last week's episode of Breaking Bad and the links within may contain spoilers, so do what you gotta do.)
As a total killjoy, I cannot personally endorse this Pinterest-ready roundup of "8 Breaking Bad Desserts and Cocktails You Should Make for the Finale" from the Kitchn. But hey, I don't pretend to know what you're into, and this sudden surge of interest in blue rock candy has frankly taken over food blogs at the moment, so it would seem almost dishonest not to talk about it. And maybe you don't think biting into a cupcake and finding crushed blue Jolly Ranchers lurking inside sounds like hell—I don't know your life!
Better use for all that rock candy: just put some in a tiny baggie and try to convince your friends that you thought this would be a good time to try actual meth. (Pictured above: this guy's "faux meth") Yeah, I'm assuming here that your friends don't have any hands-on experience with meth, but if you even for a second considered making blue Pop Rock-dusted cake pops for Sunday night, I think that's a pretty safe assumption.
I'm not sure I can think of a less party show, but there are plenty of people out there who clearly disagree. Like, did anyone have a bunch of friends over last week to watch an hour of television consisting of equal parts human imprisonment, violent death, and wasting death? How did that go? And for the love of pete, if you are going to involve themed snacks in your finale viewing, please don't follow the example of most of the aforementioned lists by forgetting to include a little chili P.
And speaking of Breaking Bad blog tie-ins I refuse to put my stamp of approval on, Food52's hosting a Baking Bad, um, event? on Instagram. Not that I have anything against lovely photos of baked goods, mind you; it's just that when I saw the title I got all excited for a bunch of photos of embarrassing kitchen failures. Who clicks on the words "Baking Bad" because they want to look at a bunch of flawlessly prepared and artfully plated tarts? No one I care to know, that's who.
