It’s football time again, can you believe it?! My family loves to root on our favorite NFL teams and even get a football game of our own going outside on the weekends. We have a large front yard that is perfect for tossing the ball around in some friendly competition! Whether we are on the field or in our living room, a tasty dessert type, chocolate snack is always fun!
Popcorn is always a big hit at our house. It’s easy, and can be served to a crowd, especially if you have company over for a game. When I was in the candy aisle at Sam’s Club the other day, I spotted a 48 ct. box of Snickers and a 105 ct. variety bag of Mars candy bars.
I thought these would be perfect to create a popcorn mix that everyone would love and that I could even bring along to someone else’s house on game day. I know, the boxes of candy sound really large, and they are, but let me tell you…you are probably going to make this recipe a few times because it’s so good!
This Sweet & Salty Snickers Popcorn is really good and highly addictive! Lightly salted popcorn is mixed with chopped Snickers Bars, pretzels and mixed nuts, then drizzled and tossed with a warm homemade caramel, then baked in the oven and cooled for a crunchy sweet and salty treat that is very hard to stop snacking on!
It’s so easy to make too! The caramel is made in 5 minutes, on your stove top while the popcorn is popping in the microwave.
The popcorn is placed into a large roasting pan that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
Then I add the chopped Snickers candy bars, the pretzels and the nuts, drizzle it all with the warm caramel and then toss it together until everything is well coated.
The Sweet & Salty Snickers Popcorn then goes into the oven for 1 hour, stirring well every 15 minutes. You then remove the popcorn from the oven and let it cool completely before serving. How easy is that?!
I have to admit, I was munching on this every time I would stir it, and then when I was taking photos. I started out serving this in a large bowl, but then decided to serve this in portion controlled mason jars before I accidentally ate way too much of this! 🙂
If your family loves football and loves to snack on game day, give this yummy #Chocolate4TheWin recipe a try at your house! Don’t forget to serve some of MARS Fun Size Candy Bars along side this special treat!
