Yes, believe it or not, I am a wife/mom that LOVES to watch football games. Preferably NFL football games. Since I am from the South, I am a BIG fan of the New Orleans Saints. I live 60 miles northeast of New Orleans. When the Saints aren't playing, I'm glued to the television watching other NFL games. For almost 11 hours on Sunday, I watch football games. It's my favorite day of the week (from Aug. to Jan.).
On Sundays, I have to snack on junk food all day. Football food. My favorite snacks are sweet and salty.
Today I made one of my favorites, pretzels and chocolate bites. It's simply a small salted pretzel with a Hershey kiss on top. I put them in the oven on high heat (450 degrees) for 3-4 minutes just to melt the chocolate. It comes out of the oven so good. The Hershey kiss is melted but still holds it's shape. You can top the melted chocolate with other candy to decorate them for holidays or parties but I like them with just plain chocolate. Hershey's chocolate to be specific.
Of course, I have to have popcorn to snack on during a game. But, I always eat buttered popcorn with chocolate. Today, I chose M&M's with my popcorn but I also like to combine it with Hershey Kisses, Snicker's candy bars and well, anything with chocolate. Can you tell I'm a junk food/chocoholic?

I apologize to all the football widows reading this. I understand...really. My husband is a football widower. I live in a house full of boys and I'm the only one that likes to watch football. Go figure.
