If you’re hosting a Game Day Party our SNICKERS® crescent rolls and Skittles® popcorn are easy and delicious big game treats!
Football is a big deal in my house. During the football season when my husband isn’t able to make it to a game we love to have friends and family over for a little homegating, and I go all out! This year Kat and I turned the whole table into a football field complete with a field goal, opposing teams, and stands full of cheering fans.
This party was for kids and adults alike, we’re doing our best to raise the next generation of football fans, so I wanted to make some fun big game treats that we’d all enjoy. I found everything I needed at Walmart…SNICKERS® and Skittles®, you can’t go wrong with those. I also grabbed some white chocolate, popcorn and crescent rolls, sounds good already right?
The SNICKERS recipe was super-simple. All I did was wrap fun size SNICKERS in a crescent roll and gently shaped the rolls into a football shape. If you make them be sure the rolls are completely sealed up so you don’t get any SNICKERS leaking out! Then I baked the crescent rolls according to the instructions on the package. Once they came out of the oven and cooled completely I drew laces on with a confectioner’s sugar icing. They were a hit!!
With the Skittles I made a salty and sweet popcorn mix. When I decorated the table I divided it between two opposing teams. Green & yellow on one side and purple & orange on the other, so I separated the Skittles by color also and made popcorn for each side of the table.
The recipe took less than 10 minutes to make! I popped some unbuttered popcorn and melted white chocolate in the microwave. Then I put the popcorn in a bowl and poured the melted chocolate over it. I tossed the popcorn until it was completely coated and then spread it out on a piece of wax paper. Then I sprinkled the Skittles over it and let everything sit for about 20 minutes to fully harden. Since I did two team colors I made two batches. My youngest really loved it, I kept catching her sneaking to the table and stealing some before the party started! 😉
My treats went on my football field table along with cupcakes that I made pom pom toppers for in the team colors, sitting in stands I made from foam board, and “football players” that I made by putting scrapbook paper helmets on the top of glass soda bottles. We’re a pretty competitive group, and everyone has a different team they cheer for, so everyone loved the opposing team theme.
It was such a fun day, everyone enjoyed themselves (even the ones who lost, sorry guys!).
