Plenty of us find a playful pleasure in making predictions, of the zaniest variety, as a new year begins.

Those predictions can run the gamut, and, oftentimes, an adventurous predictor will throw a few outlandish forecasts into the merry mix, just to keep the auguries a bit offbeat.

And if you prognosticated that you'd be devouring a dessert covered in Flamin' Hot Cheetos before the first month of the year had even reached its mid-point, well, best put a big star next to that particular guess.

For Sprinkles Cupcakes has just brought back one of the company's quirkiest offerings, a talked-about temptation that gets lovers of hot-sweet treats talking.

It's the Flamin' Hot Cheetos Cupcake, a goodie that has plenty of cakey hallmarks, like a sweet interior vanilla crumb, but also the zesty snack food as a tangy topper.

The savory center of the cupcake is also filled with Flamin' goodness, just in case you need more Cheeto-y kick after biting through that top layer.

And the frosting? It's cheddar, upping this stand-out sweet's stand-out character.

But wait: This is a Flash Flavor, meaning Sprinkles will offer it for the briefest of windows. And that window? You'll want to pre-order this caliente confection on Jan. 3 or 4, for pick-up or local delivery on Jan. 10.

By the by, the 10th of January is a Monday in 2022, and we can't think of anything better than greeting the calendar's second Monday with something that is both sweet and a tad spicy.

And, yes: Jan. 10 is the only date to either pick up your order or have it delivered.

If Flamin' Hot Cheetos adding oomph to a classic cupcake isn't quite for you, here's happy news: Sprinkles also has several of its traditional flavors available for ordering, including those decadent Red Velvet beauties.
