Snickers ‘N Cream Dessert Recipe

Football Season is Upon Us

Here in Texas, football season is more than another sport to watch. When they say “everything is bigger” in Texas they most definitely mean the sports fans as well. Friday Night Lights take on a whole new meaning and some small towns shut down for high school football teams. We live 2 blocks from the local stadium and all the town’s traffic feeds into that stadium for home games. Football is a way of life for many.

As for professional football… well I live in North Dallas… keyword Dallas. So, even though I am not fond of them sometimes {total fair weather fan}, I do believe in supporting our home team. So, GO COWBOYS! I especially like that we have a hometown boy on the field this year: Cole Beasley. The 1st Wednesday night of this month is the season kick-off and we are ready!

Nougat and Caramel Inspired

My husband and I were discussing new recipes we could try for the upcoming tailgate season. We wanted something delicious, sweet, and easy to eat during a game. We thought about the things we already enjoy, as well as what flavors were in a SNICKERS® Brand NFL Mini: the inspiration behind our creative brainstorming. As we threw out ideas, we were inspired by both the nougat and caramel inside SNICKERS® Brand NFL Minis.

The creamy filling of a SNICKERS® Brand NFL Mini mixed with the delicious burst of caramel made out mouths water. But, we needed a recipe that would epitomize the nougat filling in a rich and creamy way. We then thought about a few of our favorite desserts and remembered how much we love the filling of our Italian Tiramisu. So, we took that filling base and changed a few things to come up with an incredibly smooth, amazingly flavorful dip we call Snickers ‘N Cream.
