2. Mac & Cheese Cupcake

Now THIS is what I think when I think "Fair food": unholy, insane-looking, delightful. A macaroni and cheese cupcake in breadcrumb crust, frosted with Cheez Whiz. Kill me, I'm not worthy.

A version of the Minnesota classic, this Snickers salad consists of Snickers, Granny Smith apples, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and caramel sauce. Like a more edible candied apple.
