Coconut Chocolate Almond Football Snack Mix

This Coconut Chocolate Almond Football Snack Mix is salty, sweet, crunchy and so delicious—it's a tasty way to #BringTheBoom to your game day party!  

Thanks to BOOMCHICKAPOP for sponsoring today's post and inspiring this treat.


You all know that I love me some comfort food. The way I enjoy comfort food—without feeling guilty—is by making sure it's nutritious, balanced, and not too over-the-top. And that's how I approach food for our Superbowl party.  My Coconut Chocolate Almond Football Snack Mix is all about fun and delicious ingredients that are also nutritious. You don't have to sacrifice taste to make healthier versions of comfort food!

And that's why I teamed up with BOOMCHICKAPOP for this football snack mix: their popcorn is gluten-free, non-GMO, and contains nothing artificial. It's the perfect start to my easy game day snack mix. Just add in some coconut chips plus chocolate-covered almonds and we've got a crunchy, sweet and savory treat that appeals to kids and adults. This snack mix tastes like an Almond Joy but with a lot fewer calories—as well as a good amount of fiber, iron, and calcium.

Okay, now hold onto your helmets for this next part: how about if we turn this BOOMCHICKAPOP healthy tailgating treat up a notch? Let's transform those chocolate-covered almonds into Chocolate Almond Footballs! Oh, yeah. That's how I Bring The Boom to game day. Of course, you don't have to make these delicious little footballs to enjoy the snack mix, but they sure are fun...

Ready to make your own Coconut Chocolate Almond Football Snack Mix? Of course you are

Ingredients
  • 6 to 8 cups BOOMCHICKAPOP Sea Salt Popcorn
  • 1 cup coconut chips
  • 1 cup chocolate-covered almonds
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips (optional)
If you are making the chocolate almond footballs: Melt the white chocolate in your microwave or double boiler. Put the melted white chocolate in a small zippered bag and cut a very small hole in the corner. Pipe the stitches onto the almonds to create footballs (you only have to decorate one side). It takes a little practicemy first ones were kind of a messbut then you'll get the hang of it. Place in the fridge until the chocolate hardens.

In a large bowl, mix together the BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn, coconut chips, and chocolate almonds. Serve and enjoy!

My son is sooooo excited to serve this at our Superbowl party. That crunchy BOOMCHICKAPOP popcorn, those crispy strips of coconut, and the sweet chocolate almond footballs make this the perfect fun treat for your game day!

Of course, this Coconut Chocolate Almond Football Snack Mix doesn't just have to be for when you're watching football. It would also be great for a sports-themed birthday party, or just a regular ol' family movie night!

How do you celebrate game day?
