Raise your hand if you love football, Super Bowl parties or the commercials! Are you cheering for the Broncos, Seahawks or the snacks?
Today, I made a football stadium with Rice Krispie Treats … perfect for a Super Bowl party! It is sure to satisfy everybody … doesn’t everybody like basic Rice Krispie Treats? They are always a favorite around here … no matter which team you are supporting!
I learned a few things while making this project and I will share them with you.
Basic Rice Krispie Treats
- 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 1 – 16 ounce bag marshmallows
- 10 cups crisp rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
- Spray or use butter to grease a 10″ x 15″ x 1″ pan (jelly roll) and grease a spatula too.
- Melt butter over low heat, in a large (6 quart) pan, add marshmallows and stir until melted.
- Remove from heat add cereal immediately and stir until cereal is completely combined.
- Scoop into prepared pan and use spatula to pack the cereal mixture into pan. Let cool before cutting.
Let’s get started with making the field …
Son #3 came up with this idea!
- I used a rectangular plate (11-1/2″ x 6-1/4″), lollipop sticks cut to fit and a 5 ounce bottle of green pearls to create a field. (Hint: Tape or glue gun the sticks in place, everything rolls around easily, you could even use double-stick tape on the entire plate under the pearls if you don’t plan on eating the pearls.)
- Cut a few small cereal squares (1-3/4″) and turn upside down (the bottom is stickier), place and press 3 chocolate chips to form a triangle (football tee). You could use a little melted chocolate to secure the chips if necessary.
- Place the squares on the field, then place a chocolate foil wrapped football on the tee. I placed a small square of wax paper under each square so that they didn’t stick to the pearls. (Hint: It is best to wait to place the footballs if you are moving this tray around a lot.)
- I had some Sixlets in the correct team colors, but no blue. I went to Party City and made a great discovery … they sell individual colors in big bags, as well as the little sleeves that you can mix and match colors!
- Cut the remaining Rice Krispie treats into bars (about 1″ x 2″), turn upside down and press 3 Sixlets (in team colors) on each bar. I left a few bars without candy for the those neutral fans and non-chocolate lovers.
Arrange everything on a large oval platter/tray, about 14″ x 20″ … I used my turkey platter.

The little football bowl filled with more chocolate footballs, came from Party City too … only $.99!
