Cake Batter Popcorn

Pin It
How's everyone's Tuesday going?! 

On Saturday I ran a few miles to help me get ready for the Peachtree Road Race on July 4th.  I specifically wanted to practice running "Cardiac Hill" - this is the long hill in front of Piedmont Hospital, it feels like it goes on forever!!!  Luckily the Atlanta Track Club was out there handing out water!  Somehow I survived, but I definitely still need to work on my endurance.

To balance out the exercise here's a yummy recipe from Pinterest!! Cake Batter Popcorn was posted by Tasty Kitchen.  The recipe is super easy and so delicious, who doesn't love the combo of salty & sweet?!

What you need:

2 bags of microwaveable popcorn (I used light butter)
5 oz. White Chocolate
1 c. Yellow Cake Mix
1/4 c. Vegetable Shortening

Step 1: pop the popcorn according to instructions

Step 2: melt white chocolate by heating in a microwave safe dish in 30 sec. intervals until melted.

Step 3: stir in shortening - if it doesn't melt, heat for a few seconds.

Step 4: mix in yellow cake mix

Step 5: drizzle over popcorn and add sprinkles

Step 6: spread popcorn out onto wax paper and allow to dry


I treated myself  to a mani and pedi the other day.  I tried something different with my nails, what do you think?

The girl at the nail place calls this technique a "zebra strip" - she added silver glitter to it to make it really stand out!  I think it's so fun!!

What are some crazy colors / designs you have done on your nails?
