SNICKERS® Cupcakes + Other Big Game Day Treats!

My two favorite things are food and entertaining. Entertaining doesn't have to be difficult and it doesn't have to be expensive either! I feel like the best deals can be found at Walmart. I like to make sure I have something for everybody when I'm hosting a get together, but I also don't want to break the bank! Honestly, finger foods are the way to go for me. I like to stick to the basics and concentrate on one main attraction.

For my Big Game Day celebration, I decided my SNICKERS® cupcakes would be the star. Rich chocolate + gooey caramel goodness - what's not to love?

What You'll Need:
  • a boxed cake mix of your choice - I chose yellow
  • eggs (as stated on the box)
  • oil (as stated on the box)
  • water (as stated on the box)
  • caramel sauce
  • SNICKERS® Minis
  • chocolate frosting 
If you have a tried and true cupcake/frosting recipe, go ahead and use it! This is just the easiest, most inexpensive way to execute this recipe. 

What You Do:
1) Add the cake mix, eggs, oil and water into a bowl and mix together.

2) Once everything is combined, drizzle caramel sauce directly into the bowl. (pretty design not required ;)) and then stir.

3) Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup and scoop the batter into your lined cupcake tins (I found these football liners at Walmart a few years back and hoarded them!)

4) Once all the liners are filled with batter, push an unwrapped SNICKERS®  into the center.

5) Bake according to the directions on the box. If you insert a toothpick into one of your cupcakes and it comes out clean, they're done!

6) Let cool completely. Once cool, frost them! I chose a chocolate fudge frosting for this cupcake because yum!!!I cut the SNICKERS® Minis in half and placed them onto the cupcakes. You can also chop them into little pieces and sprinkle them all over the frosting.

I would love to have "dessert only" get togethers, but I'm thinking that might be frowned upon! So I go to the next best thing and set out my favorite snacks. My go to snacks are always chips and dip/salsa, candy, beverages and something that can be made or bought in bulk like pizza!

Chips and salsa are a must for me. I can eat them anytime of day! I personally love the TOSTITOS® brand. Their "scoops" and Chunky Medium salsa are my jam! I like to have candy bowls set out because if you're anything like me, you stress eat! I think sports and stress eating go hand and hand. Am I right? I set out Skittles® for the fruit lovers and SNICKERS® for those chocolate lovers! Lastly, I'm all about the Pepsi™ - such a classic and you just can't go wrong!
