We are just big fans — and we want to share our love for our teams, the game and the food that brings us all together on game day.

3 ingredients is all you need to make this quick and easy Game Day Candy Bark. It’s perfect for all of your football parties!

It’s that time again! I’ve paired up with a group of fellow football loving food bloggers to share recipes perfect for your game day. Last time we shared 60 tailgate recipes and this time we’ve got more than 60 Team Spirit Football Recipes!

My contribution to the deliciousness is this easy to make Game Day Candy Bark. It’s quick, easy and easily adaptable to your team. Living in Seattle for 10 years and the Pacific Northwest most of my life, makes me a Seahawk fan through and through. Obviously that means when it came to this Game Day Candy Bark, I was ready to get to pickin’ and pick out all of the green and blue M&Ms in the bag to represent my Seahawks. But then I found the M&M NFL Team Blends and suddenly my life got so much easier.


Speaking of easy, that is exactly what this candy bark is. 3 ingredients and about 30 minutes chilling time is all you need. No baking. No gathering a bunch of ingredients. This means that you have more time for all of the game day festivities! While you’re planning all of the festivities, be sure to check out the other recipes in this collection.

Oh and GO HAWKS!
