I believe it was this past weekend that football season began in our house!  Along with football season comes sweet treats and snacks for parties!  I will admit, football is not my thing but cooking and baking is, so I’m typically in charge of the food.  This past weekend, I decided to try a new treat, Snickers Cupcakes in a Jar using the SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis.  I thought using football minis was fitting for a football watching party!

I started off my dessert by heading to Walmart to find the star of the dessert, SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis!  I was easily able to find them in a center aisle with a NFL display!  I just needed a bag for my cupcakes so I picked it up and headed home to get started!

Here are a few of the ingredients that I used, I typically grab things and set it out then I have it readily available.

The first thing I did was process some of the minis to put in the cupcake batter.  I went by the method of 1 mini per cupcake, so I used 24 minis and put those in the processor.  I chopped them up into a ball of chocolate, then tossed them in with the cupcake batter and mixed them in.

I used 24 4 oz size jars to fill, like these from Walmart, with cupcake batter then placed them in the oven to bake.  I love the idea of making these in a jar because it’s very easy for your football guests to eat, plus it’s easy clean up too!

A little homemade whipped cream on top does the trick for these, of course I planned on adding  more SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis and caramel too!

I used 1 mini per cupcake to top it with too, slicing up the Snickers and then placing them on the whipped cream.  I finished it off with caramel drizzle.  Then, I ate a few or maybe more than a few.  Luckily, we still had enough left for the guests!

While I was working on football treats, my little man was outside learning how to throw the football with daddy!  It’s officially football season at our house!

    These look delicious! I was thinking of something similar with Apple Pie in a jar!!

    Looks super yummy!

    I have a question about the jars. The recipe says it makes 24 pint jars…but these look more like 1/2 pint jars to me. A pint jar would hold 2 cups, and these look smaller than that.

      Ahhh!! So sorry, yes 1/2 pint jars! Correcting that now!

      They are the 4oz jars, like these Apparently I’m doing too much canning lately and getting my sizes mixed up! =)

        Thanks for clearing that up Kristy! I thought the jars looked smaller….although I’m sure I’d have no problem polishing off a pint size jar of one of these!
