Make the Perfect Second Breakfast: Hobbit Hole Door Ice Cream Sandwiches

Blogger Tikkido has created this simple recipe for ice cream sandwiches that look like the little round door to Bag End, home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. Tikkido breaks out some precious edible gold dust for a recipe that you can have for breakfast, second breakfast, elevensies, luncheon, tea, dinner, or supper.  Take a look at the wholesome hobbit hole the treats are based on for comparison, and head over to Tikkido’s blog for the recipe if you want to make them for yourself.

Things We Saw Today: This Giant Gollum Sand-Sculpture Might Just Haunt Your Dreams

Every year, the British town of Weston-super-Mare hosts a sand-sculpting competition, and… look, screw context. Here’s a half-completed sand sculpture of Gollum. Visit the A.V. Club for sliiiightly less scary sand sculptures of Yoda, King Kong, and Captain Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones. Have fun sleeping tonight.

Hobbits Are Small, But They’re Not This Small

By Etsy seller FaceoftheEarth, here’s a delightful little Hobbit terrarium. At 10″ high, Bilbo and Frodo will need to be a bit shorter to fit inside it.

This Insanely Detailed Bag End Doll House Will Make You Want to Live Like a Hobbit

Why make a boring normal doll house when you can make a Bag End doll house? Maddie Chambers started this epic Hobbit hole by building a hill with a (round, of course) front door out of Warhammer components. Since the she just… kept going. Many of the decorations in her mini Bag End, from the living room rug to the food in the kitchen (perfect place for second breakfast!) are made by hand. I think my favorite details are the paintings of Belladonna Took and Bungo Baggins, though. A passel of pictures is under the jump.
