If you’re gearing up to watch the big game (or any game, really), you know that snacks are a must.
After all, watching a game takes time, and that means you’re going to get hungry — especially if you’re using up energy with all the cheering and whooping.
But you don’t have to rely on store-bought snacks to have something savory, delicious, and satisfying. You can make your own snacks with simple, easy-to-get ingredients, and they won’t take all day to put together, either.
Plus, you’ll get the satisfaction of watching your friends and family enjoy a new treat. Just be warned: You might end up having to make these for every event!
These chicken pops use pretzels and Goldfish crackers for a flavorful crunch outside, while the inside stays juicy and tender. And thanks to their skewers, you won’t have a mess on your hands, literally, while eating. Did we mention they’re also perfect for dipping?
They’re also more filling than your average snack, so you’ll feel full, satisfied, and less likely to mindlessly snack on empty calories. And that means you can indulge in some game-day cake afterward.
It’s a win-win… unlike the game you’ll be watching.

1⁄3cup Plain Greek yogurt
1⁄2tsp. Garlic powder
