DIRT CUPS.

If they didn’t define your childhood, you sort of missed out.

Kidding.

But they’re seriously insane.

My childhood was filled with dirt cups from Tony Roma’s. Too bad the restaurant I got a dirt cup from, served them in a FREAKING PLANTED POT. Genius, right?

If you’re a mom planning on making these, check out these empty potted planters for a fun twist.

Ok, let’s get down to biz:

These are the perfect Halloween dessert…especially if you have kids.

To be honest, I fell in love with this dessert too because it’s like a vegan pudding with a crunchy light surface AND UHHHHHH gummy butterflies/worms?? I’m SO in.

If I was under 7, I would make this dessert mandatory.

Basically my bright, new & different  idea was to add BROWNIE BRITTLE.

If you don’t know what brownie brittle is…you have not lived.

Basically it’s the dry, crunchy part ( the best part ) of the brownie in a chip-like form. It’s so bad it’s good:

I’m very much into this pudding recipe with avocado— it’s vegan & very easy to make!

Ok so, here’s the recipe:

The Skinny Confidential OMG Dirt Cups:

As much as you want of vegan chocolate pudding
A sprinkle of crushed Brownie Brittle
Some gummy worms
Some gummy butterflies
Fake plastic spiders

+ Directions: add chocolate pudding to a glass ( I used a martini glass to be fun! ). Add crushed up ( crush it up yourself ) Brownie Brittle on top of the pudding. Add gummy worms, gummy butterflies, & fake plastic spiders. Serve with a chilled spoon. Serve in planter pots to be extra cute.

You can add SO many creepy crawlers here— get creative! Plastic spiders, gummy-whatever, maybe some sprinkles. You could even do white chocolate pudding with crunched caramel salted brownie brittle & neon gummy worms— have fun with it ; ).

The more festive the better!

Regardless, BROWNIE BRITTLE WILL ROCK YOUR WORLD IN GENERAL.

Happy Halloween guys! x, lauryn

Frozen Gummy Bears

Sometimes you just crave candy. No matter how healthy you are there’s something SO satisfying about enjoying some chewy candy. Gummy bears bring me back to my childhood and going to the movies. If I wasn’t getting a crunchy milkshake I was getting one loaded with gummy worms & oreos.

Since I’ve upgraded my food choices a bit since then I’m not exactly dying for a gummy worm & oreo milkshake. HOWEVER, there is something insanely delicious about a cold gummy candy. Sounds weird right? Just trust me on this and give it a shot. Frozen gummy bears & fruit snacks are MAGIC.

If there’s one thing I love it’s texture. Hence the crunchy milkshake. SO texture. When you freeze gummy candy it takes on a new texture. Not quite solid but not quite chewy. It’s addicting really.

These frozen candies are perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth and provide a refreshing bite.

CANDY TIP

Choose wisely. Not all candy is created equal. A lot of candy contains additives and sugar. Avoid those and go for ones that contain real fruit juices and ingredients you can pronounce. Right now I’m loving Yum Earth Organic candy. Investigate and find one that works for you. When choosing candies like chocolate the darker the better.
