It’s that time–BIG GAME SEASON!  Me and hubby are spending lots of time keeping track of which teams will face off on the big day.  Our little almost-two-year-old man is also quite enthralled even at his young age.  “Bonk!” He screams when he sees a good tackle.  To celebrate our love of the game and good food, I’ve created edible, delectable SNICKERS® Popcorn Footballs, we made a few Skittles® footballs too.  And the key ingredient?  Snickers Mini’s and Skittles:

Maybe pick out your team’s colors from the Skittles bag!

You can find Snickers Mini’s and Skittles at Walmart in the candy aisle.

Popcorn Football Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 c. Butter
  2. 1 c. Light Corn Syrup
  3. 1 c. Light Brown Sugar
  4. 1/2 t. Salt (less if you will be using salty popcorn)
  5. Snickers Mini’s
  6. Skittles
  7. 10 or more cups popped popcorn of your choice

 

Instructions:

Unwrap your SNICKERS Mini’s and cut them into fourths.  Set aside for later.

Combine butter, corn syrup, brown sugar, and salt in a pot over medium heat.

Allow the mixture to melt while stirring constantly using a heat-resistant spatula.

Allow to boil over medium heat until the mixture reads 235 degrees fahrenheit on a candy thermometer.

Separate popped corn from any loose kernels.  Lay a large piece of tin foil on your work surface for quick clean up.  Pour the caramelized mixture over 1-2 cup bunches of popcorn, then sprinkle your SNICKERS or Skittles on top.  With buttered hands form a football shape.  See the process below.

Make it official!

Lastly, take your popcorn footballs and place them in cellophane wrap.  I used cellophane treat bags for ease.  Tie the ends of the bag, and place your team’s color ribbon on each end.  Using a permanent marker, draw your pig-skin stitches to create the final, football touch!
