The Big Game is around the corner!  Have you prepared your Game Day menu yet?  I am sure you have the typical Game Day Snacks on your mind; hot wings, veggie tray, trail mix, chips and dip but have you thought about the Big Game Treats?  You better, because when I am ready for football I am not the salty eater, I am the sweet eater and I know I am not alone.  I decided to step up my game this year, pun intended.  I wanted our guests to look forward to half-time when they saw the desserts I created.

I headed to Walmart with my Game Day menu and started filling the cart with the typical Big Game snacks and food but then I saw my Big Game Treats inspirations - SNICKERS® and Skittles®, two favorite candies in our home but I certainly had to do something more than just putting them in fun dishes for the Big Game.

While I would be totally satisfied with these SNICKERS® filled cupcakes I do know that not everyone LOVES chocolate as much as me!  Weird I know!  Okay, so I decided that I had to make something that would appeal to the kids and those guests that want something sweet and fruity during the Big Game.  This is where the Skittles® came into play.

Directions:

1.  I always use a traditional recipe when making Rice Krispie Treats.  Super easy and always yummy.

4.  Pour melted butter/marshmallow mixture over top the rice cereal. 

5.  Using a rubber spatula mix rice cereal and melted mixture well.  Making sure that all rice cereal is covered in marshmallow mixture.  

6.  Let the treats set for about 10 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
