Sweet Cinnamon Hot Air Popcorn - A bowl of fresh hot air popcorn is not only healthy, it's a traditional party element.
Spray hot popcorn with Parkay refrigerator 'no calorie' butter spray. Next, sprinkle popcorn with ground cinnamon and Splenda.
Pour into a large serving bowl. We recommend using either a bag OR a large bowl when doctoring-up the popcorn with the ground cinnamon & Splenda.
To take your popcorn to another level, sprinkle on a bit of vanilla extract before adding ground cinnamon & Splenda.
Baked Potato Skins - This favorite party snack need not be high-fat or high-calorie. Simply bake small potatoes, then slice into quarters.
Remove the potato flesh and mix with salt, pepper and Parkay no calorie butter spray. Return potato mixture to skins and top with microwaved bacon & a bit of grated cheese. Although most dieters gasp at the word 'bacon', most strips contain about 35 calories. Sandwiching the bacon in a damp paper while cooking in the microwave cuts even more calories.
The cheese? Think of that little dab of cheese as part of your guest's Dairy fulfillment for the day. In moderation, cheese can be a healthy part of the daily diet.
