One of my favorite memories as a kid was getting all my best friends together, playing truth or dare, putting kool-aid in each other’s hair, and eating junk food. It’s time to bring the slumber party back. Grab a bunch of girls, food, pink champagne, do eachother’s nails and gossip about boyfriends, husbands, friends, work, etc! Here is some inspiration & two *skinny* recipes for your slumber party since our metabolisms can’t handle the Doritos and cupcakes like when we were 16 <3
Dunkaroo Dip Recipe:
1 (18.9 oz) box Funfetti cake mix
2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
1 cup lite Cool Whip
Fat-free animal crackers
In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, plain yogurt and Cool Whip until completely combined and you see no more lumps. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to chill for about 4 hours. Garnish with additional sprinkles if desired and serve with animal crackers, enjoy!
Pink Popcorn Recipe:
4 L popped popcorn
2 cups sugar
1/2 small box red Jell-O gelatin powder
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp. butter (or non-hydrogenated margarine if you want it dairy-free)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. baking soda
Put the popped popcorn in a large bowl, carefully picking out any unpopped kernels. (I do this by popping into one bowl and shaking the bowl back and forth a bit, then lightly scooping out the popcorn with my hands into another, leaving the unpopped kernels in the bottom.) Preheat the oven to 250°F. Line one or two rimmed baking sheets with foil.
(recipe from http://www.eat-yourself-skinny.com)
In a medium saucepan (with room for the mixture to at least double in size), bring the sugar, Jell-O, water and butter to a boil. Once fully boiling cook for 4 minutes without stirring, swirling the bowl occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla and soda. Pour over the popcorn and toss with tongs to coat completely.
Spread out onto the baking sheets and bake, stirring once or twice, for an hour. Set aside to cool, then break into chunks. Makes about 16 cups.
