Vanessa Hudgens' Thanksgiving calorific treat

Vanessa Hudgens loves to gorge on sweet potatoes with marshmallows and brown sugar during Thanksgiving.

The 27-year-old singer-and-actress cannot get enough of the calorific treat over the holiday season and will be consuming them when she is watching the 'Lord of the Rings' film franchise "all day" today (24.11.16).

She said: "I like eating sweet potatoes with marshmallows and brown sugar.

"That's basically it. And watching Lord of the Rings all day, all of them. We don't sit down and attempt to fully watch all of them, but it's on throughout the day."

But the raven-haired beauty isn't worried about the calorie count because she enjoys playing dancing video games after her meal.

She said: "I dance my way through life.

"I started playing 'Just Dance' when it was still for Wii and now it's on Xbox and it's grown so much.

"You can play it on your phone now; there's music that is hot right now on there - 'Cheap Thrills' by Sia, different types of dancing, there is Bollywood dancing on there, which I love.

"So there is so much more to do on the game now."

But the 'Spring Breakers' star is unlikely to be cooking the turkey this year as she admits her skills in the kitchen are not the best, and she once "extremely undercooked" a turkey and only noticed after she'd eaten it.

She added to Us Weekly magazine: "I'm a really bad cook. I tried cooking Thanksgiving dinner a few years ago and realized my turkey was extremely undercooked -- and that was already after I had eaten it. Rookie mistake.

"Thankfully I didn't get sick. And it was only two of us at the time, so it's not like I really had to do it for anyone else except ourselves, so if we messed up it was going to be OK."
