It’s tailgating season, y’all!   We live in an SEC college town (GO HOGS!), so Fall is all about football.   And my favorite part of football is the tailgating!


If you’re tailgate hoppers (people who go from tailgate to tailgate visiting and eating other people’s food) like we are, it’s a good idea to bring along a little snack for your friends.  Or if you’re hosting, Soiee Snacks are really festive!   And if you package them in cute individual bags, it’s even better.


Come to think of it, you could actually call these snacks Crimson Tide Crunch, Gamecock Goodies, Bulldog Bites, or Tiger Treats….

Soiee Snacks


This recipe makes a lot.  You can easily half it. You can also adjust the ratio of candy to peanuts if you’d like.


2 packages almond bark
6 bags Orville Redenbacher Tender White microwave popcorn (this is the best popcorn ever)
1 1/4 pounds red m&ms
16 oz jar dry roasted peanuts


Line 4 sheet pans with wax paper.  Pop popcorn.  Melt almond bark in microwave until smooth.    Add M&Ms and peanuts to the popcorn.  Pour chocolate over the popcorn, candy, and peanuts and stir until everything is coated.  You’ll probably have to do 2-3 batches, depending on the size of your bowl.  Spread popcorn mixture onto the sheet pans and let cool.


Package in individual bags for extra cuteness.
