One of the most fun ways to add color or flavor to treats is by adding a bit of sweet candy. I’m sharing a recipe for these sweet treats today, as well as a tutorial for an easy Football Inspired candy jar.
- 6 cups crispy cereal
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 4 cups mini marshmallows
- Skittles Original candies– if desired, 1 cup or less of your favorite team’s color and 1 cup or less of mixed colors
- White decorator’s icing
Note that the ingredients call for 1 cup or less. Since we are mixing the Skittles Original candies in the treats, it does break up the bonding ability of the treats a bit. I used close to cup and did not have much problem with the treats sticking together, but be aware of it if you feel like you’re using too much candy.
Melt the butter on low. Add the marshmallows, and stir until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in crispy cereal. Split the cereal mixture into two large bowls. Add 1 half of the Skittles Original (the single color ones) to one batch, and the other half (mixed colors) to the other half. Mix thoroughly.
Spray a rectangular cookie sheet with cooking spray. Add the cereal mixture to the sheet in halves.
Let the treats set up. Use a knife to cut them into football shapes. Squeeze white decorator’s icing to make the top appear like a football.
Have leftover candy? I ordered the Skittles Original Candy- 41 ounce (2 Bags), the Skittles and Starburst, 31.9 Ounce Fun Size Bag, Original, and the Skittles and Starburst, Fruity Candy, Variety Box (30 Count) from Amazon, so I have plenty leftover and ready for Super Bowl day! Skittles is an official sponsor of the NFL/Super Bowl.
Did you know that you can order bulk candy on Amazon? Skittles, Starburst and Snickers products are available to purchase on Amazon. They have lots of options for a great a price, and ordering is easy.
For the leftover candy that didn’t make it into the treats, put them into these cute Football Inspired Mason Jars.
Making them is quick and easy.
- Mason Jar
- FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, in brown
- FolkArt Home Decor Chalk, in white
- Vinyl piece in the shape of a football
Apply the vinyl piece on the mason jar in the center. Be sure to place it on a side that has flat glass.
Cover the mason jar (outside only) with the brown paint. Let dry. Add additional coats, as needed, until the jar is completely covered.
Peel back the vinyl piece. Use the white paint to make football-like markings. Let dry.
Fill with candy!
