Wild and wacky food combos with the #NumNomsCrazyCreation challenge !

Well, we've seen the Cronut (donut and croissant combination), which brought together two of our favourite pastry items in one amazing dessert. Next it was the turn of green tea cake, for the slightly more health conscious, which saw a refreshing cake born from a popular hot beverage. More recently, Marks and Spencer introduced the Croloaf, a loaf of bread make out of croissants. But they are old news and now it is time for the #NumNomsCrazyCreation challenge, which encourages Num Noms fans to take to the kitchen and create their own Crazy Creations inspired by the different Num Noms themes and flavours.

 The Num Noms crew sent us over some totally inspired (or possibly totally unhinged ?!) suggestions to start us off. Chocolate Pasta with Strawberry Pesto actually sounds quite nice and I'd willingly try a Maple Bacon Cupcake.

Sweet Hot Dogs sound fun to make and I'm sure Wonuts - a cross between waffles and donuts - would be totally delicious.

So what would we come up with? Juliette went rummaging through her box of Num Noms for inspiration while I looked around the kitchen for likely ingredients and spotted .. a pineapple.

We decided to make a sandwich using pineapple instead of bread and layered it up with ham and cheese. (This is Norwegian brown cheese which is quite sweet, but cheddar or hamburger cheese slices would work too.) It was actually a surprisingly tasty combination. As pineapple is "ananas" in French, the Madhouse kids decided that this should be called a Sananas-dwich !

We decided to use some more pineapple to make a healthy take on donuts, sprinkling slices with hundreds and thousands. Donapples, anyone ?!

I had plans of making a Hawaiian Pine-zza, using a slice of pineapple as a base and topping it with cheese and ham before popping it under the grill, but the kids ate all the remaining pineapple as Donapples before I could get a look in !

Disclosure : We received some Num Noms to help inspire us for the challenge.
