You'll find award-winning dessert hacks on the Fiber One Pinterest board. Created by Fiber One, these three dessert hacks are low-calorie versions of some of America's most popular desserts, created in the likeness of some of television's most popular shows.

TiramiSHU

TiramiSHU is inspired by “Orange is the New Black.” You don’t have to join Piper in the SHU for this treat, but we do recommend you enjoy it in solitary.

1 Fiber One Cinnamon Coffee Cake
1/4 cup fresh espresso, prepared
2 tablespoons whipped cream from an aerosol can
1 tablespoon dark chocolate shavings

Soak coffee cake in fresh espresso and top with whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings.

Majority Whipped

Majority Whipped is inspired by “House of Cards.” Frank worked his way from Majority Whip to Vice President in evil ways with no remorse. Get a taste of his dark side with this Dark Chocolate Mousse.

1 Fiber One 90 calorie Chocolate Fudge Brownie, crumbled
10 dark chocolate chips, melted
1/2 cup fat-free whipped topping
1 raspberry

Melt dark chocolate chips in the microwave for 45 seconds. Mix with whipped topping until you have a mousse-like texture. Stir in crumbled brownie and top with raspberry.

Yellow King Cake

Yellow King Cake is inspired by “True Detective.” If everybody’s got a choice, we choose this lightened up take on Louisiana’s most notorious dessert.

1 Fiber One Cinnamon Coffee Cake
2 tablespoons sugar free vanilla pudding
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
Yellow, green and purple sprinkles

Push center of bar to create a donut shape. Spread vanilla pudding over bar. Top pudding with chopped pecans and add yellow, green and purple sprinkles into a striped pattern.

Set a pretty table for your Emmy Awards party and use the good china. Turn the lights down low and add strings of white lights to set the mood for a night of viewing fun.

Choose a color theme for your Emmy Awards party using the Governors Ball "kaleidoscope of color" theme for your decor. Add a brightly colored candy table for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Watch the Emmy Awards live at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Aug. 25, 2014. At the Emmy Awards website, you can download the list of nominees and awards to vote for your favorites in advance. You'll also find tips for hosting your own Emmy viewing party.
