Popcorn and Hot Chocolate in Team Colors #footballseason

 “Bleeding” my team’s colors isn’t really my thing. I get squeamish walking by the blood drive booths. Heck– I get squeamish just looking at the signs for the blood drive.
But eating and drinking? That I can do– no problem. Bring on the Cougar Blue food and drink!

{these recipes are, obviously, adaptable to any team colors… but let’s think BYU!!}

  13. Thank you for visiting my Whisking Wednesday party last week. I hope to see you again this week! This is a cute idea, I think my daughter would love it!


  14. Ok, so this is probably a dumb question, but when you say 2 bags of popcorn, are you talking about 2 regular sized bags of microwave popcorn? And also, how far in advance can you make this? I am planning to make it as a party favor for my boy’s birthday party, so I wasn’t sure if I could do it a few days ahead or not?

    • Yes, I used two standard size bags of popcorn :) I don’t think I would make THIS recipe a head of time, I feel like the mashmallows would make it kind of stale. But you could just use white chocolate (with blue candy coloring if that’s what you’re wanting) and coat the popcorn in that. It would still be really good with the cinnamon sugar!

      Good luck!
