I am a compensated Chief Waffle Officer for Eggo.
If there’s one thing I can count on it’s a Sunday routine. Throughout the year our weekends typically have the same routine but starting in late September through January, our Sunday routine belongs to my husband. Why?
IT’S GAME DAY!
And by game day I’m talking about football. Even though this house is full of Cowboy and Packer fans, it doesn’t matter what football team is playing that day, it’s on the television. While I don’t mind watching a few plays here and there, I don’t actually sit down to watch a full game until the Super Bowl and even then it’s mostly for the funny commercials. Instead, I use my time to mosey around the house getting chores done and throwing together snacks for the football fans in the living room.
This past Sunday I threw together a quick snack that the whole family loves. It’s fun twist on a popcorn snack mix with the addition of chocolate chip Eggo Waffles and a “Rocky Road” flavor mix.
- 4 cup caramel popcorn
- 4 chocolate chip Eggo waffles
- 2 cups mini marshmallows
- 1 cup salted, dry roasted peanuts
- ¼ dark chocolate, melted
- Prepare the waffles as directed by the manufacturer. Cut the waffles into bite sized pieces.
- In a large serving bowl, toss together the popcorn, waffles, mini marshmallows and peanuts.
- Drizzle the chocolate over the snack mix and serve.
