Hey Friends! 

My family and I get together frequently to watch football. It is always a party, with a huge spread of food. We love to get together and eat. However, there is usually someone trapped in the kitchen cooking. We decided to find a way we can all enjoy the game. I found these amazing snack stadiums on Pinterest. There are amazing ways to build these stadiums. They are quite simple to make and it helps keep people from cooking during the game. Everyone can actually relax and enjoy their teams' victory.

Products Used:
SNICKERS® Minis 40oz
SKITTLES® XL 41 oz.
PEPSI™ 12 oz. 12 pack
TOSTITOS® Scoops
TOSTITOS® Chunky Salsa
Popcorn
Homemade Guacamole 
Homemade Bean Dip
Homemade Greek Yogurt (plain)
Any type of Cheesy Puff Chip
Jerky
Cookie Sheet
Cardboard 




First you will take any cookie sheet you have and line it with any type of foil. This just helps clean up go so much faster. Make sure you seal the edges. This will house your layered dip. 





Next, you will lay down your bean dip. I love making mine myself. It tastes delicious. I set this down as my first layer because it is the heaviest of the layers. If you set the salsa or guacamole down first the bean dip would collapse through. 



I then take the TOSTITOS® Chunky Salsa and lay a nice thick layer of it. I love salsa, the majority of my family loves salsa, so I use more of this than anything else I layer. I use a spatula to spread my layers out evenly. You can use any type of knife or spoon. 




The last layer of your dip can get kind of tricky. When you spread on your guacamole you want to be very light handed. That way your existing layers don't get pushed through. Take a few spoonfuls at a time and lightly spread it across the "field" or cookie sheet. 



This step is entirely optional. I just wanted to make yard lines and end zones. I wasn't sure what I could use as the markings. I saw I had some left over homemade Greek yogurt. That was the perfect way to mark up my field. I stuffed the yogurt into a zip lock, released all the air and cut off a corner of the bag. Homemade piping bag!



I wanted to make goal posts for my little field. I used toothpicks and placed them through the cheesy puff chip. Make sure not to stab yourself, and use the thicker puffs. Do not place these until the party or they will get soggy, and face plant into the dip. I know from experience. You can add jerky football players, or you can leave the field blank. 




On to the stadium part. This is actually so simple. Take any type of cardboard box you have. We broke our box down into four pieces and laid them out. You will need to next make your steps. So mark your steps, we made ours 2 inches apart. 




Score the steps. This makes the folding process easier. Cardboard this big is not the easiest to manipulate. This was a two man job for me. To get nice steps we folded the steps accordion style. So back and forth. Then we pressed really hard on the last fold and held it there for a good five or so minutes so the steps would hold up without assistance. 



This step you want to do when you are at the location of the party. So if you are traveling with this stadium do these last steps there. You will now arrange the stadium steps around your dip. We left a good section unfolded so we could slide a piece under the dip sheet. Set up the stadium as desired. To add a little stability we used PEPSI™ 12 oz. 12 pack cans. This kept our stadium from sliding backwards or kept the stairs from collapsing as people reached in for the dip. 





Arrange the food as desired. We randomly placed SNICKERS® Minis 40ozTOSTITOS® ScoopsSKITTLES® XL 41 oz., popcorn, and cheese puff chips. 




Add your goal posts.
