There's also a cookie sandwich with a cookie dough filling.

Though we all probably hoped that the end of 2020 would induce some magical departure from the status quo of the past nine months, the truth is that a pandemic doesn't really conform to the Gregorian calendar. So if you spent a lot of time last year getting really into baking, well, you'll probably have plenty of time to keep that hobby going in 2021. 

Fittingly, this year will bring with it a chance to make some new creations in the kitchen. Case in point: this year will herald the arrival of not one, not two, but five different innovative baking kits from Duncan Hines. And if you go by what the brand is choosing to call this proverbial murder's row of easy-to-make baked goods, they're all pretty epic.

From brownies to cookies to cake, these Epic Kits span the full range of your quarantine confectionary endeavors. That includes over the top S'mores and Salted Caramel Brownie Kits, an Epic Cookies & Cream sandwich Kit, and a mind-bending Cookie Dough Cookie Kit. That's right: you'll be making a cookie sandwich that uses cookie dough as the filling. Between that and the Oreo "Brookie-O" it seems like 2021 is shaping up to be the year where we all just said "screw it" and started eating cookies filled with cookie dough. 

The real star of the Epic Kit show, and one that literally takes the cake, however, is Duncan Hines' introduction of a Fruity Pebbles Cake Kit. Available just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the cereal, this particular kit features all of the bright colors and bold, sugary tastes Pebbles fans have known and loved for generations. 

If your New Year's resolution (for some reason) centers on eating less cake and brownies, the good news is that these Epic Kits won't start appearing on store shelves across the nation until early March. By that point, you'll definitely have earned the right to treat yourself to one of these.
