Tuesday: Super Bowl Snacks for the Kids

1. Game Day Candy Popcorn

  • 12 cups of popped popcorn
  • 1/3 cup of real butter (5 1/3 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup of light corn syrup (light colored)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 packet of Kool-Aid drink mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • food coloring (optional)
  • Skittles (optional but required for all of you Beast Mode fans.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 225 degrees. 

Chop butter in a few pieces and place it in a medium-large pot over medium-low heat. Add corn syrup and sugar and stir until butter is melted. Increase heat to bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to keep mixture at a simmer and let it bubble way, stirring constantly for 3 minutes.

Remove pot from heat and stir in Kool-Aid and baking soda. Add food coloring if desired. Once mixed up well, pour immediately over popcorn and stir until it's all coated. Spread popcorn onto baking sheet and cook for 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Cool completely and then break into chunks.

If adding Skittles, it works best to gently push them into the popcorn clumps as soon as it comes out of the oven. The heat from the popcorn mixture will help stick the Skittles to the popcorn. 

2. Game Day Rice Crispy Treats

  • 3/4 box of Rice Crispy cereal
  • 2 1/2 small jars of Marshmallow Fluff
  • Food Coloring
  • 1/2 stick of butter
Instructions: Melt butter in a pot on the stove and add the Marshmallow Fluff. Next, add food coloring of your choice (in this case you would add blue or green). Take the pot off the burner and add the Rice Crispy cereal, stir it and place it in a rectangular cake pan. Let it sit and serve once they rice crispy treats have cooled.

3. Beast Mode Soda

  • Sprite
  • Skittles (in this case you'd want to add green or blue skittles.)
  • Clear cup or glass
Instructions: Pour the Sprite into your clear cup or glass. Add a few Skittles and watch them fizz. The sprite will change colors depending on what color of Skittles you choose to add to the Sprite. 

Wednesday: Snacks for the "Healthy Twelfie"

  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Green Grapes
  • Green Apples
  • Skewers
All you have to do with this is use your imagination! You can put the different Hawks colored fruits on a platter in a fun shape. For instance, we put green grapes into the shape of a "12" and surrounded them with blueberries and blakberries. You can also put the Hawks colored fruit on skewers to make fruit shish kabobs. Green apples are also fun to add to the mix and of course, you can throw in some vegetables as well.
