One user also suggested adding choc chips, saying: "These make great cookies too... just add choc chips." 

"Just made," wrote another fan. "Yum! Needs vanilla ice cream."

In another post, Jonathan turns a McFlurry into a cake by adding some self-raising flour to an Oreo McFlurry and putting it into the microwave for one minute. 

"Oh! It's actually nice!" he said, seemingly surprised his creation worked.

His reaction, however, didn't have many people believing it was something they should try at home with one user writing: "I'm not convinced!"

"Or just enjoy the McFlurry as it is with a proper packet mug cake," another wrote.

In yet another hack, Jonathan puts a whole block of Cadbury's Dairy Milk in a pan of boiling water while it's still in its packet. Then, take it out, dry it off and cut a corner off to create a delicious chocolate piping bag that you could use as a topping on a desert. 

Jonathan chose to use his chocolate on a marshmallow.

"Wow, mind blown," one user wrote, while another said, "Best one yet!"
