Now I know I’ve expressed my lack of football prowess, but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to pull together a cute game day snack.
We love to spoil our teachers with little treats throughout the year, so the littles helped me make these in the colors of their teachers’ favorite teams! Kentucky for the PCP’s current teacher, Alabama for his beloved first grade teacher, GT for us (of course), and the Saints for the baby’s teacher (somehow I failed to get a picture of it?!?! Maybe it was the monkey trying to down the pretzels as soon as he saw I was preoccupied.) John asked for the Falcons (gotta represent) and, as much as it pained me, I made one for the Dawgs (THWG!).
You’ll find a page with four tags for each of these TWENTY-FIVE teams:
- Georgia Tech
- University of Georgia (THWG)
- Texas A&M
- University of Kentucky
- University of South Carolina
- University of Florida
- Florida State
- Mississippi State
- Notre Dame
- University of Louisville
- Appalachian State
- University of North Carolina
- Louisiana State University
- Texas Christian University
- Ole Miss
- University of Arkansas
- University of Miami
- Syracuse University
- Atlanta Falcons
- New Orleans Saints
The salty sweet pretzel treats are SO easy to make! Here’s how:
1. Line a pan with foil and spread butter snaps (square pretzels) in a single layer.
2. Unwrap a hershey kiss and place one in the center of each pretzel.
3. Bake in the oven at 170 for about 8 minutes. Start checking after 5 minutes as you want them to be easy to push down with an m&m, but not running all over the pan.
4. Remove from oven and press a m&m down in the center of each kiss. Put in the fridge to let harden back up.
NOTE: Bestie S had the stellar idea of making these using the football shaped pretzels and has reported that they can be found at Wal Mart and World Market!!!
I found all of the colors I needed in a regular bag of m&m’s, with the exception of white that I had left over from another project. I did these with candy corn a couple of years back and they were super cute too!
Kickoff the celebration, y’all!
