Kalen Allen, of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Kalen Reacts fame, visited the Allrecipes studio to decorate cookies, talk about food, culinary dreams, and working with Ellen DeGeneres.

In his YouTube video series, Kalen Reacts, Allen responds to and critiques recipes that range from the sublime to the ridiculous (Potato Salad Cake was a viral sensation).

Kalen tells Allrecipes about his dreams of being a pastry chef, shares his love of cooking Italian food, and more—all while creating cookie portraits of himself and Ellen, and dishing on working with and learning from the beloved comedian and talk show host.

Watch this episode of "Treat Yourself" and many more on Allrecipes Twitter.
