This football party food post was inspired by a product I received for review at no charge. All opinions expressed here are my own.
Fall is finally here and with it comes things like pretty colored leaves, sweaters, and of course, football! My husband is an avid fan of college football so I see a lot more of the sport than I probably would care for! If you have a football fan in your house, chances are there have been times you have company over just to watch an important game. Of course, whenever I have company I feel the need to feed them! If you are looking for creative football food you can make these Trail Mix Popcorn Balls. These popcorn balls are a slightly healthier snack food than your traditional chips and fried appetizers. They are loaded with healthy ingredients and a fun addition to your football party food menu. The football shaped popcorn baller from Good Cook allows you to mold your popcorn BALL into a popcorn FOOTBALL to get your guests into the spirit of the game.
You can get creative with the types of ingredients you add into your trail mix popcorn ball. Just like a regular batch of trail mix, the recipe is flexible. I chose raisins, cashews, chocolate chips and pretzels because that is what I happened to have in the pantry. You can just as easily use coconut, dried pineapple and macadamia nuts for a Hawaiian themed popcorn ball. The addition of the peanut butter and agave nectar holds things together and gives it a wonderful flavor. If you have never made popcorn balls before you will need a few supplies. You can find everything you need at Good Cook including candy thermometers, bowls, silicone spatulas, non stick pans, and many more items. Make sure you prepare everything ahead of time to avoid running around last minute and trying to find your candy thermometer and parchment paper!
