Easy Football Snackadium Recipe

Easy Football Snackadium Recipe

I was pinspired. Yep, inspired by Pinterest. It happens all the time but I’m one of the types who doesn’t try very many things. When I do try them, some work out well and some do not. It doesn’t stop me from trying more! In honor of the start of the Fantasy Football season (yes, I play), I decided to try the snackadium recipe I had pinned.

Pinterest didn’t have the most detailed directions so I was winging it a bit. The idea seemed pretty basic so I went shopping to pick up everything I thought we would need to put it together!

Snackadium Recipe Ingredients

Creating the Snackadium

The great thing about the snackadium is that you can really add the ingredients that you, your family, and friends like. You can change it up a little every time you make it too!

What you need:

  • Cheese dip
  • Salsa (I recommend a chunky salsa over a more liquid one)
  • Guacamole
  • Chips or crackers of your choice
  • 2 Slim Jims
  • Block of cheese
  • toothpicks

What you do:

I started by putting together my goal posts. I cut the Slim Jims into pieces and used toothpicks to keep it all together!

Snackadium Goal Posts

Once I had those created, I was ready to create the field! I used a Pyrex baking dish for my stadium. I set it on top of a metal cookie sheet to hold the chips in around the edges. I have seen it done with a fence made from Rice Krispies treats but I decided to try it without. The double pan approach worked well for me.

Snackadium Comes Together

I covered pieces of cardboard (cut from a cereal box in our recycling bin) in foil to keep the dips separate when I was pouring them into the pan. You can see in the photo why I recommend going with a chunkier salsa. The salsa I used was a jar we had gotten in San Antonio this summer. It was delicious, but a but too much liquid to stay on its end of the field.

Once all of the dips had been poured, I removed the cardboard. I stuck the goal posts into blocks of cheese to hold them up at either end. Then I added chips and crackers around the edges to complete the snackadium.

It was a huge hit with J and one of our friends who came over to check it out!

It will be perfect for our next Super Bowl party or just any weekend when we’re watching football with friends!

What snacks do you like to serve on football Sunday?

    I must admit, I’m not much for novelty presentation (I don’t see myself crafting goal posts out of meat snacks) but I love the chip and dip tray. What a great way to offer variety to your guests without taking up a lot of space.

    Sooo cool! That one looks easy to do! :)
    I have seen a few that are impossible, (ie- stacking cheese, and sandwiches to creating seating around the stadium). lol
    Thank you!

    I love this idea. Yes, I also get pinspired by Pinterest and try so many of the recipes on my family. I have pinned this recipe to try out during game days. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
