Can you believe the Super Bowl is almost here? We’ve been watching football a bit more here in Kansas City, since the Chiefs made the playoffs for the first time in my life! While my team is no longer playing in Super Bowl 50, I’m still looking forward to a very sweet Super Bowl. And what watch party would be complete without awesome desserts? Well, none… that’s why I’ve got these super-simple no-bake push pops using Skittles! And the best part is, you can customize them to YOUR favorite team’s colors in a snap!
To make sure I always get enough sweets to feed everyone, and that they arrive on time, I typically place my Skittles, Starburst, and Snickers orders through Amazon. If you’re a Prime junkie like me, it’s super quick and easy to order the Skittles you need for your Super Bowl party (or to place a recurring order with Amazon Pantry, so your candy dish is always refilled). To get you prepared to make Super Bowl 50 even sweeter, some products will be up to 20% off for a limited time! And the best part is, Skittles is an official sponsor of the Super Bowl, making it a perfect fit at your Super Bowl watch party!
To make your push pops, you’ll start by assembling your push pop containers according to package directions, then sort your Skittles by color, picking out the colors of your favorite team. If your favorite team’s colors aren’t in the original lineup of Skittles, you can always check Skittles Sours, or any of the other awesome Skittles flavors, like Tropical or Wildberry.
Set your sorted Skittles aside, and open up a container of whipped topping. Mix in one packet of powdered drink mix (not the single-serve packets, but the ones that make a couple of quarts of the beverage) in the color/flavor of your choice, stirring until completely combined. Repeat for as many colors as you plan to use! If the color isn’t quite as vibrant as you’d like, you can always add a few drops of food coloring, as well.
Spoon the whipped topping into piping bags with the piping tip of your choice, and finally, crumble some vanilla sandwich cookies– I used between 1 and 2 cookies for each push pop I made.
Once the prep work is done, assembly is quick and easy… if you have a kiddo or friend around, you can even do this assembly line style to get it done even quicker! Just sprinkle some cookie crumbles in the bottom of the push pop container, top it with a swirl of one of your whipped topping flavors, top that with Skittles, and repeat the layers of cookie, whipped topping, and skittles with your second color.
Finish your push pop with a few more cookie bits, a swirl of whipped topping, and finally, a Skittle in each of your team’s colors.
You’ll want to make these immediately before you plan to serve them (so don’t make them the night before) because the whipped topping should be eaten pretty soon after layering to prevent the cookies from getting too soft.
For a little variety, you can add some chocolate into your gathering with Snickers or Twix! For a Snickers-inspired push pop, start with a layer of chopped Snickers, then a swirl of plain whipped topping (with no drink mix flavoring in it), a layer of nuts, and then more bits of Snickers, whipped topping, and nuts until you’ve reached the top.
When it comes to Twix, get the flavor of the delicious cookie inside by replacing the nuts in the Snickers layering with more vanilla cookie bits.
Finish each of the chocolate push pops with a squeeze of whipped topping and a delicious drizzle of caramel ice cream topping, and you’ve got the perfect chocolate treat!
When I serve push pops at a party, I’m all about adding extra candy, scattered out for easy grabbing. There’s no need for fancy bowls– just lay down some parchment and spread the candy around so guests can pick and choose their favorites for enjoying during the Super Bowl.
Now that my team is out, I’d love to know which team YOU think I should root for during Super Bowl 50, and I want to know which of the push pops made with Skittles, Snickers, or Twix that you’d be using to make Super Bowl 50 Even Sweeter in your party spread! Let me know in the comments below!
