Did you know that it's less than a month away from the BIG GAME? And between playoffs and bowl games, it seems like there's always football on at our house!  I love football, but for me, the big game is all about the food and the halftime show. This week, I have THREE new recipes planned that are perfect for your upcoming football watch parties. First up, these amazingly sweet and salty Rainbow Kettle Corn Popcorn Balls!

Now, you can definitely customize this mix to your favorite team's colors! But, since we don't know which two teams will be competing, I decided to make it EXTRA festive with rainbow colors! I used regular Skittles, and didn't pick out any specific colors. It would be so easy to customize the colors if you needed to!

Skittles is an official sponsor of this year's Super Bowl! Since they're going to Make Super Bowl 50 Even Sweeter, I popped on over to Amazon (MY FAV!) and bought SkittlesStarburst, and Starburst FaveREDs. With Amazon Prime, these items arrived on my porch in two days! What did people do before Amazon Prime, seriously?

Making these kettle corn popcorn balls is so very simple. I bought microwave bags of kettle corn, but you could make it from scratch if you desired. I was going for quick and easy on this recipe! I threw Skittles in with the kettle corn, and then coated the popcorn and Skittles mixture with a super easy marshmallow coating, and then formed them into popcorn balls! I studded each popcorn ball with extra Skittles so each popcorn ball had all the colors visible!

You totally can! There are tons of recipes online that looked pretty simple. I just went for the premade stuff though to limit the steps!

I really like this recipe! So often popcorn balls are too sweet with corn syrup but this looks light and tasty! I love the colorful Skittles!
