Apple Pie a La Mode McFlurry
Order a regular vanilla cone, a pie, and an empty cup, then use a spoon to mash the pie and the cone to smithereens inside the cup. It may seem strange to put the entire cone in there, but trust me on this one, the extra texture is a big help. I can only imagine how good this would be if the apple pies were still fried, like in the old days.
An order of plain old hotcakes can easily be transformed into "McCrepes" by rolling up the berries from the fruit and yogurt parfait inside each pancake, sprinkling granola on top of the fruit, and drizzling the pancake with syrup. Unlike some of the other concoctions, this one was immediately delicious and therefore, highly recommended.
McFlurry Ice Cream Sandwich
Just about any flavor of McFlurry would make a tasty filling for an ice cream sandwich, but the cookie-on-cookie-on-cookie action that's achieved by sandwiching Oreo McFlurry between two chocolate chip cookies is pretty epic. Unfortunately, it's almost too messy to bother with. A better idea would be to break up the chocolate chip cookies in the bag they're served in, and mix them directly into the McFlurry.
Half a breakfast biscuit, strawberries from a fruit and yogurt parfait, and a scoop of whipped cream make a fairly decent take on a strawberry shortcake, though the biscuit is a bit too tough and the whipped cream melts remarkably fast. It's practically impossible to eat this without smearing at least half of the ingredients all over the tray.
I've always found McDonald's hamburger buns rather sweet, so swapping out the meat and cheese for cherry pie filling and whipped cream seemed like a decent concept. The result was much tastier than their standard cheeseburger. The spongy and sweet bun complemented the juicy chunks of cherry, and all of the elements stayed in place. The only issue with putting this dessert together is the cherry pies have about one tablespoon of filling, so you'll need to scoop out the contents of at least two. Tip: you can order a "side" of whipped cream for about 20 cents, if the cashier rings it up as "extra sauce". To get a plain bun, I had to order a McChicken with nothing in it, including the chicken.
Apple Pie with Cheese
Yes, you can order apple pie with a slice of cheese at McDonalds. But should you? No, you should not. Even though the cheese was applied directly to the (supposedly) warm pie and given time to melt, it never did. More surprisingly, it's almost impossible to taste the flavor of the cheese over the cinnamon in the pie filling.
