Something Sweet

With an evening event, like the upcoming UTEP game, Grove goers tend to need a little pick-me-up before the game. Here are some delicious sweet treats that will guarantee a sugar-rush!

Rolo Pretzel Bites
I don't think you can make enough of these! I've made about two bowls for each game, and they are gone within the first hour! They are so easy to make, and only take about 15 minutes to make! Glorious Treats has a great post about how to make them. The square shaped pretzels are harder to find, so I use the mini regular shaped pretzels.  If you aren't a carmel fan, you can also make these with Hershey's kisses. I've also seen variations made using various nuts, M&M's, and other kinds of candy (check Pinterest for more ideas!). 

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cookies
This is another quick and easy treat to make that everyone loves! If you're feeling really ambitious, you could make the peanut butter cookie dough from scratch like Risa on Baked Perfection posts about. However when I busy fixing large amounts of Grove food before a game, I prefer the quicker, the better. I go for the Pillsbury pre-made peanut butter cookie dough. You'll also need a bag of fun size Reese's cups and a mini-muffin tin. Place the cookie dough into the cups, and press down lightly to form the dough to the mold. DON'T PUT THE REESE'S IN YET! Bake the dough according to the package FIRST, then immediately after pulling them from the oven push the Reese's cup into the cookie. Make sure to let them cool in the tin before you remove them so the candy can set.

Cake Pops
These are not your quick and easy Grove treat. Cake pops take a lot of time and practice, but they are totally worth it! I suggest making them the night before the game. Check out my blog post about cake pops to see how to make them!

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs
For a healthier sweet treat, try this fun twist on traditional strawberry shortcake! Lemonade Makin' Mama has a great post on how to make this treat. You could even add a few blueberries to make them Ole Miss colors!
