Want to stir things up? Does a feta dessert tickle your tastes buds?

A foodie has taken making dessert to the next level by taking on the popular oven-baked feta pasta that has been circling social media for the past few weeks and changing it into a dessert...

Feta dessert

A few weeks back, the famous feta pasta dish took over social media. If you missed out on the dish or aren't familiar with the oven-baked feta pasta, it is a combination of cherry tomatoes, a generous drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of flaky sea salt, pepper, and a brick of feta, all going into a casserole dish to roast until the skins of the tomatoes split open, the feta turns a delicate shade of gold, and all the juices marry. Sounds amazing, right? 

Wait for it, because that's not the end of the mouth-watering dish. Using a wooden spoon, the feta is broken up, revealing a soft, creamy centre that beautifully combines with the other ingredients.


While all the feta is melting away looking delicious, some minced fresh garlic and basil cut into a chiffonade are added before tossing in the pasta and mixing. The result is a cheesy, salty sauce balanced by the freshness of the herbs and the sweetness of the tomatoes.

This popular recipe was then recreated on TikTok by the account @cookingwithayeh, where it has gone viral, with millions of views.

While people were still busy with the hype of the recipe, Häyrinen decided to share a controversial twist to the original recipe which uses strawberries instead of cherry tomatoes to make the sauce for the meal – leaving users shocked and confused, but still very interested. 

She started by adding a block of feta as you would per the old recipe, and then a bunch of strawberries before seasoning it all. Then the ingredients are baked and mashed together before the pasta is added. But some think adding strawberries was a “step too far”. 

But now, there’s a dessert version of the famous dish. Andy Kinkade shared a video this week demonstrating how to make the dessert, which has also gone viral with over a million views.

The method imitates the original recipe but uses sweets and chocolates rather than vegetables, pasta, and cheese. This alternative recipe only requires four ingredients – Maltesers (a British confectionery product), marshmallows, chocolate syrup, and popcorn – sounds very simple to make.

In the video, a packet of Maltesers is poured into a greased baking dish with marshmallows in the centre. Then a huge amount of chocolate syrup is drizzled on top and the dish is put in the oven to bake. Once the chocolate begins to melt and the marshmallows are bubbling, he removes the dish from the oven and adds it to a bowl of popcorn.

He then stirred the dessert together to create the ultimate sweet chocolate sensation.

Here’s how to make it:
