Fun Tailgating Recipes

Football Season is in full swing!! 5-0 Packers BABY!! Just sayin 😉
Anywhoo!!! We shared these yummy recipes over at Kuzak’s Closet last month in Amanda’s super fun Tailgating Series she hosted. We wanted to share them here too in case you missed them :) If you try them please share with us! We would love to hear about it!!
B here!
Today I am super excited to celebrate one of my favorite times of year!  Football, tailgating, Fall, it all fits perfectly together and I LOVE it

This is the simplest of recipes, but it just isn’t football around here with out them. Mini pigs in a blanket are a huge staple at our house on Sundays.

What you will need:

Little Smokies Sausages
Crescent Rolls
Parmesan Cheese
Garlic Salt

Now for the doing:

Lay out your crescent rolls flat.  Keep two triangles together, and pinch seems together.  Then cut them in strips.

Wrap the cute little sausages in the rolls and place them on a cookie sheet.

Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese and garlic on top.  Bake according to the crescent rolls package.

Happy Football Season Everybody!

Hi everyone! K here!!
B shared a fun and easy recipe in this fun series, and now I get to share one of our family’s favorites.

What’s better than an ordinary Pretzel Hug ??
A GREEN BAY PACKER Pretzel Hug of course!!
{Sidenote} B and I married Cheesehead brothers! We love it!

First gather your ingredients:
Bag of Snap Pretzels
Bag of Hershey Hugs
Green and Yellow M&M’s

Place pretzels on a cookie sheet, try and fit as many as you can. Then unwrap your Hugs chocolates, and place one on top of each pretzel.

Bake at 200 degrees (preheat your oven), for approximately 7 minutes. Due to oven variations, be sure and watch for the Hugs to melt. Once they start to melt, remove them from the oven, and right away place a couple M&M’s on each Hugs chocolate. You may need to press them into the melted chocolate.

I always allow them to cool before serving them out to others, but they are just as yummy right away! If I make them during the game and hungry hands are ready to devour them, I stick them in the freezer for five minutes so the chocolate hardens a bit. Again, just as delicious!

I like to make up a few batches the day before the game to have them ready, this way I can let them air dry for several hours. I store them in an airtight container overnight, and serve em up whenever we are ready! We like them cold, so I tend to put them in the fridge, but this is not necessary.

Imagine all the color possibilities!! 

We make these pretty much for every holiday, and use colored M&M’s to “match.” You can bet Halloween ones are up next!!

And just for fun :) Here’s a picture of our Packer family of FOUR last weekend! Big deal! Mia’s first Packer football game! And a win to boot!! Woot woot!
Love how the hubs towers over us. Love how Maggie is looking at her Daddy. Love how teeny Mia is. Love how my face tells you how much sleep I’ve gotten in the last week, (someone bring me some makeup stat!) ha!

Have a great day everyone!

  5. Yum! I’ve made the pretzel and hug treats, except I didn’t use M&Ms and used two pretzels like a sandwich!

  6. Yum! I make the pretzels with ROLOS instead of Hugs! :-)

  7. mass snacks. What a cool idea that my kids can help me with. Who doesn’t like pig in a blanket but your assembly here makes it a real choice for a crowd. Pretzel Hug gets my mind turning for candy combos. Great idea!


  1. […] a sweet way to support your team? With a few bags of M&Ms, these Pretzel Hugs become a custom tribute. And they’re very […]
