We just finished a brutal week of band camp with my daughter as she is now officially on the color guard. You know those girls that dance with flags at half time while the band plays. We all know half time is just as important as is the football. Right? These pretty ladies get out there in costume with decorate faces and dazzle us with movements and flags that would be completely impossible for any person off the streets to accomplish.
That being said I like to make treats for her that are football themed. I think it’s super fun and cannot wait to share these MARS Messy Cookie Cups at a tailgating event this Fall. Simple to make and completely adorable! I picked up some sugar cookie dough because I am lazy and didn’t want to make it but you are so welcome to make your own.
I stopped off at Sam’s Club to get the 105-count variety bag of MARS® candy bars(minis) so I could make plenty of these when I need them quick. I just pop the bag of chocolates in the freezer. I also picked up a 48 count of SNICKERS®. These I will simply keep on hand for the trunk or treat tailgating night.
These cookie cups are just made in cupcakes liners that you fill with cookie dough and MARS chocolates. Simply press cold sugar cookie dough into a cupcake liner.Place the candy on top and bake. Here I am going to show you how I make my MARS Messy Cookie Cups filled with MARS candy and topped off with an adorable tooth pick football flag. #Chocolate4TheWin
Please stop by the comments below and let me know what tailgating desserts you like to bring with you to the game? Or maybe you have a appetizer dessert you make at home. I’d love to hear about them.
