This quick and easy portable snack stadium only takes about half an hour to put together and it’s portable so you can take it to a football party anywhere.

Easy Snack Stadium

Since I first spied them on Pinterest a few years ago, I’ve wanted to make a snack stadium.  You know those super cute food displays set up to look like a football stadium? Super cute, but they just looked like so much work to put together. I decided that it was time to take on the Snack Stadium.  I had two requirements for building a snack stadium. It had to be easy so I could put it together in a short amount of time. It also had to be portable so I could take it to a party at a friend’s house.


I headed to Walmart to pick up supplies and food for my snack stadium. I decided to do a sweet versus salty theme in the stadium. This way none of the food need to be kept chilled.  I headed in to the candy and chip aisle and grabbed a bag of TOSTITOS®, TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa, Skittles®, SNICKERS® FUN SIZE®, Fritos®, and Starburst®.  A quick swing by the beverage aisle scored a 12 pack of Pepsi™ 12 oz cans.

Snack Stadium Supplies

I decided to build my stadium using disposable baking pans.  Not only are these inexpensive, but they all fit together perfectly to make a stadium. I used a cookie sheet for the field, two regular size loaf pans for the end zones and four mini-loaf pans for the stands.

How to build a snack stadium

I built my snack stadium on a large wood cutting board. It’s the board we use to carve the turkey on Thanksgiving so it provided plenty of room for all the snacks. A sturdy piece of cardboard or foam board would work as well.

Sugar Cookie Football Field

I used store bought sugar cookie dough and white frosting to make a football field cookie.  It was ready in 15 minutes so it fit my “easy” requirement. I added green food dye to about half a tub of white frosting for the field and piped on the white lines with a pastry bag and tip. My husband said the lining crew needs to be fired but I wasn’t being picky. I wanted easy.

Football Snacks

I put some TOSTITOS® chips in a large loaf pan to anchor the salty team.  This went on one of the short ends of the football field cookie in the “end zone.”

TOSTITOS® Medium Chunky Salsa and Fritos® rounded out the Team Salty on the side lines in the smaller loaf pans.

Football Snack Stadium Candy

The SNICKERS® FUN SIZE® Variety candy bars went in to the other large loaf pan on the other end of the cookie in the sweet team’s end zone.

Sweet Football Snacks

Rooting for Team Sweet in the sidelines are Skittles® and Starburst® also in mini-loaf pans. If you have a favorite team you could pick your team’s colors and just include those colors.

Pepsi Cans for Football

In the corners of the stadium I added 12 oz cans of Pepsi™ to give some height and fill in the corners.

Portable Snack Stadium

And that’s it! Baking the football field cookie took the most time of about 15 minutes. But other than that, this portable snack stadium can be put together in under 10 minutes. So pack it up and take it along to your next football party. Get more snack stadium ideas on this great website!

    You should line the salsa tin with some plastic wrap. The salsa should not be in the aluminum. Ok for a few minutes, but not for hours.
