Are you ready for the biggest game of the season?  Well if not, then you better head over to your local Safeway to stock up on snacks, sodas and a chance to win $50,000 or an gift card.

On Sundays in our house especially during football season my sons are parked in front of the television watching the games and eating whatever I put in front of them.  So when I was given an opportunity to recreate this Snickers® Blitz Dip from Mars®, I knew it would be a hit with the mini men.

Malik is home from college on a winter break and had been itching to get back behind the wheel so he enthusiastically agreed to drive me to Safeway.  As soon as I walked into the store there was a large display so I immediately grabbed a few bags of  Tostitos Scoops, a few jars of Chunky Salsa and several 12-packs of Pepsi before heading inside to get the ingredients to make the Snickers® Blitz Dip.

TIP: store the apples in an air tight container with a little lemon juice to keep them from turning brown, or slice them as needed.

Who doesn’t like a little salt with their sweet?  This was definitely a hit with the mini men and I plan on making it again even after the football season ends.  

So as you prepare to celebrate the Big Game 2016 with your family and friends, make sure to stop at your local Safeway to pick up the ingredients for this tasty sweet and salty treat, oh and don’t forget the Tostitos Scoops and Chunky Salsa to make it a winning day for everyone!

What are you planning to serve for the Big Game 2016?  

I love snacking on finger foods but am more excited to see and tweet about the commercials and of course the halftime show.  Do you know who will be performing this year?
