Hi friends! Happy Monday!

Today I’d like to share some fun (and easy) football party ideas for the big game! Working full-time and being momma to two little ones has my schedule pretty full. So, when I want to plan a special event for our family it has to be simple and of course, fun! Today’s post is going to go over how to achieve just that!

On Friday night I was thinking about how badly I wanted to put together a fun party for that Sunday. I knew we’d be watching football – and I wanted to just do something out-of-the-ordinary, and fun! I wanted to make a simple sweet treat that the boys could help me make, and some easy snacks that required no oven-time. So I headed off to Walmart and picked up some HOT POCKETS® Pepperoni Pizza with Garlic Buttery Seasoned Crust, 12 pack & a few bags of the new ButterFinger® Peanut Butter Cups Minis. I knew the Hot Pockets were delicious and could be made in the microwave (score) and my guys LOVE ButterFinger® and I had a fun brownie recipe in mind!

Here’s how I threw our fun and EASY party:

1) Mix Brownie Mix per instructions on box.

2) Add 1/2 pack ButterFinger® Peanut Butter Cups Minis, chopped.

3) Bake following brownie instructions, let cool.

4) Flip onto cutting board.

5) Bend a circle cookie cutter to make football shape, then cut.

6) Add “laces” with white icing!

They turned out pretty cute – right? Wyatt loved helping me make them! To add more to the table, I decided to cut up the Hot Pockets® Pepperoni Pizza’s into fourths and put a toothpick into each one for easy snacking! They’re a snack that satisfies and each is made with quality ingredients like premium meats, 100% real cheese, and have 9 grams of protein (or more!) in each one. HOT POCKETS® are a delicious snack that has some serious staying power! They’re perfect to snack on while watching the big game! I also added some chips and dip, napkins, plates, a bowl full of the extra candy we didn’t use in the recipe, and extra toothpicks! It was so easy for everyone to grab just what they wanted!

My best tip for hosting a fun family party: Keep it simple! I didn’t spend the whole day cooking, I picked up all of my decor and accessories at Walmart, and it took about 5 minutes to set the table! Have the snacking buffet style, it saves so much time! And most importantly, HAVE FUN!
