Now that the big day is finally here, it’s time to whip out some of my quick and easy recipes to keep the kids pumped up and full. For this game day, I decided to use a little bit of inspiration, from my kid’s favorite candy. Skittles Candy of course!

While I was at Dollar General store the day before I scored an amazing deal on these babies. So I loaded up and grabbed some other supplies and headed down the field (the aisle) and scored a touchdown at the register. Do you remember when you used to throw skittles in the air and try to catch them in your mouth?

Wait I still do that HAHA sorry. You’d think after all of these years of practice I would have it down pact now. Oh well, as embarrassing as it is to admit, I’m still at about the same skill level as I was when I was 9 years old.

Back to the snack idea’s, I figured, why not throw the kids favorite’s together and make a fun snack? Bam! Genius right? I grabbed 2 bags of kettle popcorn, a bag of white chocolate chips, a bag of skittles and some marshmallows. Oddly this combination is the bomb!

I popped the 2 bags and set them in a large pan. Melted down my chocolate chips in a double broiler method, poured it over top of the popcorn and stirred. Added in the Skittles Candy and then the marshmallows. Let dry for 10 minutes and then popped them into a cute football popcorn bag.

Of course, there was more than popcorn at this shindig, we had some yummy cheesesteak sliders. By the way, might I add that using the Hawaiian rolls tends to be my secret weapon/ingredient? I keep it simple for the kids since they don’t like veggies in their sliders, so I leave those out and boost the flavor by using a sweet bun. Seems to work out perfectly for my crew.

My 10-year-old says that a party isn’t a party if we don’t have pretzels, so of course, I obliged and made sure there was a huge bowl for everyone to pick from. I happened to find these super cute food boxes, all of the snacks and juice drinks fit perfectly.

I would have put a cupcake in with the cheesecake sliders but the kids would have had a heart attack. They hate when their food touches each other. It’s okay sometimes but in this case, it was a no-go zone.

The star of the show had to be the moist Chocolate Skittles Cupcakes. The cupcakes were so easy to make, my little ones were able to help out on this chore. With green colored vanilla icing, and chocolate fudge footballs, topped with Skittles, I think my kids were in heavy.

By the way, there were almost no casualties in cupcakes during the making of this party. I managed to avoid this by letting them have at it with the extra icing we had left over.

Although I feel as though there was enough sweetness going on these cupcakes, I had a nice sized bowl full of marshmallows and skittles candy ready for anyone to use.

I had a lot of fun with this sweet theme, I feel like I was able to keep it sweet yet not a sweetness overload. Yes, that’s possible, I learned that the hard way a long time ago. As long as you balance the sweetness with other flavors your good to go!

What are your game day traditions? Do you like to cook up a storm or keep it small and delicious? Oh if you would like to see a step by step on how I decorated the cupcakes you can look below.

**IMPORTANT**

Make sure to completely smooth out the chocolate footballs with the toothpick. They taste good either way but they look awesomesauce when you get them super smooth. I suggest warming up the icing just slightly before decorating, to help the icing blend together when you are putting it on.
