For me, the Big Game is all about the food. I love a good opportunity to make goodies for the people I love, so I had an idea to make a really fun snack table.

o Game Day Glory Sweepstakes.

Since I seem to always be at my favorite local Wal-Mart, I easily found all the goodies I needed for my fun game table setup to give my kids and their friends plenty of snacks for the big game. Big GameMy table made everybody happy; from TOSTITOS® chips with six layer dips, mini sandwiches and sweets. I made several things –   Individual 6 Layer Mexican Dips IMGP8676 copyMini Italian Sandwiches Mini Italian SandwichesSkittles® XL (41 oz. size bag) Push Ups Skittles Push UpsSNICKERS® FUN SIZE® Variety 35 oz were definitely a part of the spread!  Snickers GameLots of Pepsi™ for refreshment. Mars Big Game TableTo make my table, I used an old bedsheet and some of my ex-husband’s white duct tape that he used for work; I found it in the garage! The decorated containers are simply a tomato sauce can and mason jars that I covered with construction paper and decorated with burlap and tape. The push ups were these cute plastic push up containers I found online with Skittles® XL 41 oz. There’s a million uses for them. The kids loved them! Here’s the recipe printable for the six layer dips and the sandwiches-

My favorite way to eat the Italian Subs is to wrap them in aluminum foil and bake them at 400 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Since these were going to be sitting out for a while, I decided to keep them cold, but if you should try them hot!
