Eat! Super Bowl Treats Day 2: The Snack Bowl Stadium

31 Jan

Build it….and they will come.

This snack-bowl stadium spread from holytaco.com  is sure to get the crowd going with its limitless possibilities for variation.

There are several things included in the Snack-Bowl Stadium above that would disagree with my palate. It’s not my thing to just eat strips of bacon, and vienna sausages is equivalent to talking badly about my mama.  So for me, there are definitely some substitutions that need to be made.

However,  in any case the key to this is to, make it your own!

Have a more snooty crowd, swap the guacamole for a crab or artichoke dip with dill sprinkled on top for the grass. Don’t like twinkles, use ding dongs, or hostess cupcakes instead… and so forth and so on. Basically whatever you construct your Snack-Bowl with,  is sure to make the snack gods proud!

Without further adieu….. I present to you……

The Snack Bowl Stadium

Ingredients:
The Field:
1 Pound of Guacamole
15 Oz. Queso Dip For The Steelers End Zone
15 Oz. Salsa For The Cardinals End Zone
2 Oz. Sour Cream for the Field Lines
The Players:
15 Vienna Sausages / Snack Size Summer Sausages
Helmets – 3 Oz. Sharp Cheddar Cheese
The Goal Posts:
1 Slim Jim for Each Goal Post
1 Oz. Monterey Jack Cheddar To Anchor (each)
The Stands:
58 Twinkies
1 Pound of Bacon
1 Bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos
1 Bag of Cheetos
1 Bag of Corn Tortilla Chips
1 Bag of Chex Mix
Calories: Really? do you will want to know…
Cost: If you use the exact components as this one, around $70
The feeling of being the snack guru amongst your compadres…….Priceless
 The Field:
Take one pound of guacamole and smear it on the center of a baking tray, leaving a section on either end for the end zones.
 Yard Lines
Take sour cream and put it into a turkey baster, then squeeze gently to make the yard lines across the field.
The Stadium
The twinkie is nature’s brick.  You can make your stadium as large as you want, depending on how many twinkies you have at your disposal.  We had 58.  And probably could have used 90.  Use tooth picks to secure the twinkies to one another.  This outer stadium wall will provide a delicious dessert when the contents of the stadium have been eaten.
 The Bacon Wall
The bacon wall is the most important part of the stadium, because it keeps the throngs of screaming fans, in this case chips, from falling on the field, in this case the guacamole and salsa.  Insert tooth picks into the first row of twinkies, and then weave the bacon in and out of them, so that it forms a pliable wall.
 The Fans/Chips
Without the fans, there would be no game.  It’s no different in your snack stadium, so select four different kinds of snacks to fill the stands.  Be sure to use pieces of bacon to separate your crowd into sections, as you can see in the corners of the stadium in this photo.
Now bask in the glory……. bask in the glory……..
Holla,
