Our family uses any excuse to throw a party, so I put together some Football Party Ideas for The Big Game this weekend, featuring Cheez-It and Pringles snacks.
I shopped at Walmart for Cheez-It Crunch’d, Cheez-It Grooves, and Pringles to make some fun snacks for our party. I wanted to dress them up a bit, though, so I turned them into football-themed party snacks.
Cheez-It Chicken Nuggets
Cheez-It Grooves (I used White Cheddar flavor)
Boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the tenderloins into nugget-sized pieces.
Add the Cheez-It Grooves to a plastic bag and crumble them. Dip the chicken pieces in the buttermilk and then coat them in the Cheez-It crumbs.
Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, until the edges start to turn brown.
Chocolate Covered Pringles:
Pringles (I used Original flavor)
White candy melts
Melt the chocolate according to package directions. Dip the pringles in the chocolate and set on wax paper to harden.
Melt the white candy melts and add them to a piping bag fitted with a small tip. Draw on laces and edges to make the pringles look like footballs.
Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix
3 c rice cereal squares
3 c wheat cereal squares
2 c Cheez-It Crunch’d
1 c pretzel sticks
1 c mixed nuts
1/4 c butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp hot sauce
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Add the cereal squares, Cheez-It Crunch’d, pretzel sticks, and mixed nuts to a roasting pan and set aside.
Heat the butter, salt, sugars, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, and garlic powder until melted. Pour over the cereal mixture and stir together.
Bake for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Allow to cool before serving.
At our football party, we also served mini hamburgers with football picks, snack-sized Pringles, and some water fitted with fun labels!
For decorations, I hung plastic tablecloths as a backdrop in team colors and then strung up a printable football party banner. I also drew some football plays onto a black poster board using a white marker. Fun, right?
The kids had fun snacking on all the goodies, and even the grown-ups enjoyed our fare of chicken nuggets and mini burger bites.
