Snickermallow Football Pops

The Super Bowl is Sunday … do you have your menu planned?  I’m working on mine … simple, nothing fancy.  We aren’t having a party, but snacks are a requirement while watching football’s big game … according to my family ;)P1030597 Snicker & Marshmallow Football Pops

Today I’m sharing one last easy peasy football treat!  There are several reasons to make these pops … Snickers and marshmallows dipped in chocolate … they’re easy to make … can be made today … stored in an air tight container at room temperature … served on Sunday!

P1030603 Snickers Marshmallow Football Pops

To make 25-30 pops, you will need …

  • 25-30 lollipop sticks
  • 8 ounce bag of Snickers bites (you will have extra)
  • 1 pound of chocolate candy coating (such as CandiQuik)
  • 2 ounces of white/vanilla candy coating (such as CandiQuik)
  • 1 bag Kraft Stackermallows
  • 2-1/2″ cookie/biscuit cutter (I used one with a crinkled edge because I didn’t have a plain edge one)

P1030595 ed

  1. Melt candy coating according to package directions.  Use a stick to predrill (about half way) into the side of a Snickers (don’t worry if it cracks, it will be covered in chocolate later).  Dip the tip of the stick in melted candy and insert into Snickers, let chocolate harden.
  2. Use the round cutter to cut a Stackermallow into a football shape.  (Save the marshmallow scraps to make Rice Krispie Treats or in hot cocoa!)
  3. Use a little melted chocolate to attach the flat side of the Snickers to the back of the football shaped Stackermallow, let chocolate harden.
  4. Spoon melted chocolate over the entire pop, tap off excess chocolate.  Place pop in a stand/styrofoam or lay (Snicker side down) on wax paper covered tray.  Chill for a few minutes.
  5. Place melted white candy in squeeze bottle or pastry bag and draw lines/laces on the football.

About the name … if Snickers added marshmallows to their candy … believe they would be called Snickmallows … don’t you agree?

These are ready to go for Sunday’s game …

These pops would also be cute addition to a sports themed birthday party :)

Thank you to Miss Candiquik for the candy coating  :)

Raise your hand if you love football, Super Bowl parties or the commercials!  Are you cheering for the Broncos, Seahawks or the snacks?

P1030577 Super Bowl 2014 Krispie Treats

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.

P1030580 Football Field Krispie Treats

Basic Rice Krispie Treats

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 1 – 16 ounce bag marshmallows
  • 10 cups crisp rice cereal (Rice Krispies)
  1. Spray or use butter to grease a 10″ x 15″ x 1″ pan (jelly roll) and grease a spatula too.
  2. Melt butter over low heat, in a large (6 quart) pan, add marshmallows and stir until melted.
  3. Remove from heat add cereal immediately and stir until cereal is completely combined.
  4. 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.

Sweet Guacamole & Chips Cupcakes

I love guacamole!

I love cupcakes!

I love to have fun with food!

Guacamole Cupcakes

We are a football family … translation – the guys watch the game, I make the snacks.  I usually fill this bowl with real avocado guacamole … this year it may be filled with cupcakes.  Surprise :)

My favorite part of this cupcake is the chocolate covered Cheerio “olives”.  I made my “olives”, after hearing about the ones that Jacques Torres makes.  Someday I will go to his store and buy them!

The strawberry jam “salsa” tastes pretty good … son #3 loves this part!

Last year I made Nacho Cupcakes

I can’t believe that it took me so long to dream up guacamole cupcakes!

This is what you will need …

001

  1. Make the chips – Place 2 tortillas on a parchment lined baking sheet, spray with oil, sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar, cut into triangles, bake at 400°F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
    002
  2. Make olives – Mix melted chocolate and Cheerios, remove each Cheerio with tweezers and use a toothpick to poke the chocolate out of the center if necessary.  Lay on parchment and chill for a few minutes.chocolate cheerios004
  3. Make “guacamole” icing – color the icing yellow then mix in one drop of green coloring and continue adding green until you have reached a lovely guacamole color!  Fill disposable pastry bag (or a ziptop bag) with icing and cut off tip creating about a 1/2″ opening.
  4. Frost cupcakes … add a few chips … spoon on some jam … add my favorite “olives” :)   sweet guacamole chips

I do have an “olive” alternative – cut black licorice … the hubby likes black licorice, I am not a fan of it, but it is easy!

I can’t decide … would you serve margaritas with my guacamole and chips?  I do love your comments :)
