Cheer for your favorite team with candied popcorn in your team’s colors, and serve in DIY football-print popcorn boxes.


  • 4-6 cups of popped popcorn (no butter, no salt)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 (3.5oz) package of flavored gelatin, in your team’s color.


1. Preheat oven to 250F.  Grease 9×13 pan with butter or cooking spray, and fill evenly with popped popcorn.

2. Heat butter and syrup in medium saucepan on low heat until butter is melted (about 2 minutes).

3. Stir in sugar and gelatin, increase heat to medium, and bring to boil (about 3 minutes).

4. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently.

5. Pour mixture over popped popcorn and toss with wooden spoons until covered.

6. Bake for a total of 15 minutes, tossing every 5 minutes with wooden spoons.

7. Pour onto wax paper or parchment paper and cool for 10 minutes.

8. Break into bite-sized pieces.

9. For multiple team colors, make separate batches and combine, or serve separately.

10. For popcorn box assembly instructions, see printable sheet.


Bake up these homemade hot pretzels (or your favorite frozen pretzel) and serve in football-print pretzel bags.
{Recipe via Food Network}


  • 1 1/2 cups warm (110 to 115 degrees F) water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 22 ounces all-purpose flour, approximately 4 1/2 cups
  • 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
  • Vegetable oil, for pan
  • 10 cups water
  • 2/3 cup baking soda
  • 1 large egg yolk beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • Pretzel salt


1. Combine the water, sugar and kosher salt in the bowl of a stand mixer and sprinkle the yeast on top. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the mixture begins to foam.

2. Add the flour and butter and, using the dough hook attachment, mix on low speed until well combined.

3. Change to medium speed and knead until the dough is smooth and pulls away from the side of the bowl, approximately 4 to 5 minutes.

4. Remove the dough from the bowl, clean the bowl and then oil it well with vegetable oil.

5. Return the dough to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and sit in a warm place for approximately 50 to 55 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size.

6. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 half-sheet pans with parchment paper and lightly brush with the vegetable oil. Set aside.

7. Bring the 10 cups of water and the baking soda to a rolling boil in an 8-quart saucepan or roasting pan.

8. In the meantime, turn the dough out onto a slightly oiled work surface and divide into 8 equal pieces. Roll out each piece of dough into a 24-inch rope. Make a U-shape with the rope, holding the ends of the rope, cross them over each other and press onto the bottom of the U in order to form the shape of a pretzel. Place onto the parchment-lined half sheet pan.

9. Place the pretzels into the boiling water, 1 by 1, for 30 seconds. Remove them from the water using a large flat spatula.

10. Return to the half sheet pan, brush the top of each pretzel with the beaten egg yolk and water mixture and sprinkle with the pretzel salt.

11. Bake until dark golden brown in color, approximately 12 to 14 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack for at least 5 minutes before serving.

12. For pretzel bag assembly instructions, see printable sheet.


Serve up your favorite nachos, wings, hotdogs and other stadium snacks in these DIY snack baskets!  See printable sheet for assembly instructions.



Top off your favorite cupcakes or other baked treats with football picks!  To make these gridiron cupcakes, use a multi-opening frosting tip (wilton #233) to make a green grass surface, and pipe on yard lines.  For football pick assembly instructions, see printable sheet.



Help guests keep track of their cups and bottles with these write-on labels.  Glossy or waterproof will help ensure that moisture won’t make your ink run during use.  I’m a huge fan of Labels by the Sheet.

    What kind of paper do you recommend printing the snack trays on?

  14. jenst.clair February 6, 2012 at 2:23 pm

    Hey Jeremy,

    I used a simple white cardstock (110lb) for ours. If you use something uncoated, be sure to line the trays with wax paper to prevent moisture from soaking through.

  15. Mallory May 14, 2012 at 4:04 pm

    Am I missing something? I can’t print the files.

  16. Football Rose July 20, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    These ideas are awesome. My favorite is the snack basket! I am going to have to share this page with our Sports Roses customers.

  17. Parker December 7, 2012 at 6:31 am

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for to make my party not just a success! My wife and I are having a huge football party this weekend for all my friends and coworkers from DISH. These homemade pretzels you gave the recipe for will be perfect! I have the DISH Hopper hooked up, and moved all four of my TVs into our giant living room so we can have three games going live. One on each of its three, all while recording another on the fourth! There’s such a diverse group of fans coming over, I want to make sure everyone gets a chance to see their team in action! Thanks again!

    Thank you! Football ideas ROCK!

    • Becky Archibald January 31, 2013 at 5:55 pm

      You can use coffee filters for taco or hot dog holders as well and also for potatoe chips!

  19. Stacy Miller February 3, 2013 at 8:47 pm

    great ideas!

  20. Debbie Borthwick February 5, 2013 at 5:44 pm

    These are all amazing! We had a last minute Superbowl party and I used your popcorn box. I’ve posted about it and have linked to your post to give you credit. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
    Debbie :)

    • jenn s. February 6, 2013 at 7:11 am

      Thanks, Debbie! So happy to hear you were able to use the popcorn boxes! :)

  21. Christy September 1, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Where could I find the label for the drinks?

    • alyssa September 9, 2013 at 4:27 pm

      Hi Christy, It’s in the downloadable zip file above :)

  22. Linden January 24, 2014 at 5:08 pm

    There is something wrong with the download link. When I click to open it, it opens some pictures I already have.

  23. Stephanie Kruse February 3, 2014 at 3:16 pm

    Amazing! I love the colors and the designs.
