Can you believe we're already in February?! February 1st only means one thing - it's game week! Every year at my house, we have a huge get-together and make a ton of amazingly yummy snacks - dips, appetizers, finger foods, desserts, you name it and we have it! Making a ton of food to snack on all day rather than eating meals throughout the day is my favorite thing to do (I snack all day, every day!) so I'm beyond excited to actually have a reason this weekend to do so!

Here are some of my favorite things to have for snacks to watch a great game of football:

SNICKERS® Minis 40 oz, Skittles® XL 41 oz, Pepsi™ 12 oz. 12 pack, TOSTITOS® chips and TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa - have these snacks and you're pretty much good to go! There are so many things you can do with these snacks and great recipes to make - or just to eat the entire bag of Skittles® before Halftime like I do! ; )

A fan favorite that I've been making for a few years now is a SNICKERS® Dip. After having a ton of salty and savory appetizers and dips all day, I always love having something sweet and chocolaty. That's what had me come up with this idea - having a sweet treat to off set all of the spicy foods and main appetizers! The best part is it's super simple and quick to make and your guests, family and friends will all think it took you hours to create.

SNICKERS® Dip Recipe:


 photo Ingredients_zpsut0owsqd.jpg

1 bag of SNICKERS® Minis 40 oz

1/2 jar of chocolate/hazelnut spread

1 tablespoon of butter

3 ounces of cream cheese

1/3 cup of powdered sugar

P.S. You can find all of these products in the Game Day Glory section in your nearest Walmart!

How to make:

Put the butter and a large handful of SNICKERS® Minis in a pot on medium heat. Stir the mixture until the butter and SNICKERS® have melted together to your liking.

Side note: consider buying an extra bag (or 10) of SNICKERS® in case you eat as you cook like me!

Next, take your kitchen mixer and mix together the hazelnut spread with your cream cheese. Once this is mixed, pour in the melted SNICKERS® mix followed by the powdered sugar (a little at a time - you can sort of eye the sugar).

This is what your mixture will look like once you mix everything together:

I love to mash up any extra SNICKERS® I have left over and put them on top of the dip for some extra yummy-ness! It's better when cooled as well, so place it in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving time.
