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:
- 1/2 c. Butter
- 1 c. Light Corn Syrup
- 1 c. Light Brown Sugar
- 1/2 t. Salt (less if you will be using salty popcorn)
- Snickers Mini’s
- 10 or more cups popped popcorn of your choice
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!
