football yardline jello snacks

super bowl's coming!
so let's talk about how much i know football.











..........

ok so now that that's over with,
i do know about football treats.
here's a fun one for all your football party needs and it doesn't even look like a football!

look:
and cute tiny bowls.
there are 8 clear bowls in each set.
i used 2 sets of the clear plastic bowls for a total of 16.
party city has clear square appetizer bowls that would work too if you don't have these.

ok so now let's get mixin'!
mix it all together to get a yummy milk mixture then,
actually the milk sets up even faster than that-just check after 10-15 minutes since the volume is so small. 
make sure each layer sets before adding the next layer.

now to add one more detail:
i flipped the jello upside down to write the numbers on the opposite sides.
then line 'em up to make a jello yardline!

you can actually cut the condensed milk part of this in half or even less if you're good at stuff like that since you don't need much 
or 
you can make more green/gelatin jello to make more yardlines and use the whole condensed milk part. 

anyway, i was able to make 16 yardline snacks and use up all the lime jello. i had no idea how much jello/milk i would need when i set out to make these because of the bowl sizes but mostly it's cuz this treat's about football and you know how smart i am in that subject.
:>P

i actually made another jello treat that i will share with you in the near future where i used up the leftover milk part (and there was a lot leftover!).
  
i originally got this idea from the famous rainbow jello everyone makes (i followed this one but just made all the layers one color as you can see). it's the jello that only takes 99 gazillion hours to make cuz you have to wait for each layer to set. 
well, you can do it that way if you want and just cut the squares out but these set faster cuz they were in cute individual bowls so i could add the numbers to it.
you like?
you can top them off with football paraphernalia from party city to make it look like you are such a brain when it comes to football!
ok so not really that smart. 
but the treat is interesting enough i think.
now if they really played on a jello field i may actually be interested in the game...

  4. These look amazing and I know just as much as you about football! I had to have my husband design my superbowl printables, cuz I had zero idea where to start. Your jello would be a huge hit in my state, where green jello is the state food :)

  11. I don't "get" football either, but what I do get is making cute appetizers for the Super Bowl table! This recipe is light and refreshing - a great contrast to the heavy, greasy, bacon-y stuff that guys just grab and shovel in without realizing that us women spent hours forming football shapes! But that only lasted one year over here! Now we make the guys pose for pictures by the table before diving in!
