I love football season to me it means Fall and Winter are coming. I remember when we were little and the Steelers were in the Superbowl, we would all put our Black and Gold on and head over the my Uncle Carmen’s house, We would all go into his basement and watch the Superbowl and of course watch the Steelers win. But then when all of us kids started getting older and married, we were having children we outgrew Uncle Carmen’s basement and start going over the my Mother’s house. We have a Superbowl Party every year it does not matter who is in it, we just love getting all of the family together, that is weather permitting, since we live up in Erie now, there are times we get 12-24 inches overnight. Every Sunday during football season we still go up to my Mom’s house and watch the football games with her, this year we have another member of the family to add Daniel, he will see how crazy his Mema gets when she is watching football. Here’s a flash back photo of the kids from our Superbowl party in 2006
Preseason football has already begun and we are ready to party! I decided to goto Walmart today to look for the SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis so I could bake a sweet treat for the Steeler game. The display was very small, I even went back to the sporting goods department to see if they had another display and they did not.
There were a couple of things that I needed while I was there and picked those up too. You can see what else I shopped for and found in my shopping story.
For our preseason football party I decided to make pizza and cupcakes with SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis Bagged Candy in the center of them. These are the ingredients that I am going to need.
These cupcakes are so simple! Here’s all you have to do:
- Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box
- Line cupcake tins with liners, fill 1/2 way with the batter, then put a SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis in the center and cover with a little more batter to hide it.
- Bake as directed on the package.
- Combine 2 Sticks of softened butter, 1 cup of Crisco, 2 melted Hersey bars
- Mix together until nice and smooth
- aAdd 2 pounds of confectioners sugar and mix until smooth, if it seems to thick to pipe, add a couple of drops of milk to smooth it out.
I cut into one of the cupcake to see how the SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis did, and they are perfect.
I finished them off by adding buttercream icing and a SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis Steelers Log. GO STEELERS!!!
We went through the bag and separated all of the teams and I have them displayed below, as you can see the Steelers are in the middle. It’s pretty cool how many teams are represented in one bag!
Now my boys are ready for the game and of course to have some of Mom’s yummy SNICKERS(R) Brand NFL Minis Cupcakes Next year Daniel will be able to have them too.
