NFL Snack Roundup

snappers pretzel chocolate

NFL season is here! I would much rather be AT a game than sitting at home, but we can’t have it all. 😉 One thing that makes NFL season extra fun is the food. I always try to make sure I accompany my “desserty” snacks with some healthy options as well. Moderation is key. That being said, here are a few of my favorite football snacks:

1. Snappers (Pictured Above):

If you’re a fan of sweet and salty, you will LOVE these! The Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Snappers are my favorite flavor. It’s a pretzel topped with dark chocolate, a little bit of caramel, and sea salt. Snappers was kind enough to send us a bag to try and they are great! They even sent me an indulgent Milk Shake Recipe to share with you (In case it happens to be cheat day 😉 ).  All you need is 10 oz Chocolate ice cream, 5 oz whole milk, 1 cup hot fudge, 2 tbsp crushed pretzels, 1T mini dark chocolate chips, 1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp sea salt. Top with a Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Snapper. Available at Costco stores nation wide and on


2. Guacamole:

Chips and guac are a must when watching football.

  • 2 Medium Onions, Fine Dice
  • 3 Medium Limes,  Juice
  • 4-6 Medium (about 2 Cups) Tomatoes
  • 1 Cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves, chopped
  • 2 Medium Jalapeno Peppers, Stems, Seeds and inner white ribs removed, Fine Dice
  • The Secret Ingredient – 1 Small can (8 Oz)Crushed Pineapple in Natural Juices
  • 12 Medium (about 8 Cups) Avocados, Cut in half, Pit removed and scooped out of shell. Crushed into paste
