SEC Tailgate Special : The University of Missouri

Football season is our FAVORITE time of year. We love the weather, the crowds, the crazy football action, and of course, the food!  This year, we created a tailgate recipe for every team in the South Eastern Conference.

Our goal: to capture the spirit of each school’s team and make a fun and delicious recipe using local flavor and flair. So we put our football differences aside, and researched every school.

If you have ever been to an SEC Tailgate, you know that food is the only thing that brings opposing fans together. (Besides the fact that we all want to beat Florida.)

If you don’t follow college football or aren’t a fan of the SEC…that’s totally ok. The SEC Tailgate recipes are still awesome for your next party. Or a Tuesday. (We won’t judge.)

We bought colored Wilton candy melts and melted them according to package directions. Just microwave, stir, and keep going until it is smooth.

Spoon some of the coating into a cup so you can easily coat each salty pretzel stick. Twist and turn and remove. You can use any sized pretzel stick you want. We went for the salted pretzel rods. Great size and the salt goes so great with the yummy candy coating.

*Note, by the end of this process, the kids were in charge of these candy coated pretzel sticks and they just slopped the candy coating on with a spoon. Hey, whatever works, right?

While the candy coating is still moist, decorate with your favorite sprinkles. Again we went with Mizzou colors : black and gold! (Wilton has a wide variety of candy melts and sprinkles you can easily do any team color.)

If you do a lot of candy coating, Wilton has the best little device to keep your candy coating melted to the perfect temperature while you work. This is worth it if you are making a double or triple batch of these for a crowd.

Get creative! We created tiger stripes in a few different ways to get different results. We carefully layered some on by alternating sprinkle glitter colors. On others we used a wooden skewer and drizzled the melted candy on in a tiger stripe pattern.
