17 Copycat Recipes We’re Already Rushing Home to Try


Summertime is all about treating yourself. But we don’t have to tell you that treating yourself can get pricey (we’re talking to you, girl who won’t start the day without a frozen vanilla latte).

But here’s a secret—it doesn’t have to cost a lot. And why is that? Because most of those “gotta have it” menu items that your favorite franchises are famous for can easily be re-created in your very own kitchen. That means with a little extra effort and a dash of ingenuity, you no longer have to put your money where your mouth is to enjoy a (slightly less) guilty pleasure.

Isn’t that wonderful? Your piggy bank certainly thinks so!
