TikTok food hacks are taking over the social media platform.

This isn't the first food hack to go viral and it probably won't be the last. Users can't get enough of simple tips and tricks for preparing food in new ways. 

One trend that went viral was the "envelope eggs," which consisted of simply separating the yolk and swirling the white of the egg in a pan. Then, you simply drop the yolk in the center of the egg white and fold each side over the yolk, creating an "envelope."

And, the world simply won't forget about "whipped coffee," which struck the internet in 2020. This trend became super popular and was created by using instant coffee with one teaspoon of sugar and one teaspoon of water. You mix everything together in a mug for five minutes and the coffee turns into a creamy caramel color, which you can then top with milk. Yum!
