What would a week of super snacks be without something sweet?! This Butterfinger Cup Puppy Chow is perfect for the big game! It's really yummy and has Butterfinger Cups in the coating, and there are also pieces of candy in the mix.
This puppy chow can be made ahead of time (so that you're not in the kitchen while everyone else is watching the game), and it's totally snackable. Plus, how can you go wrong with peanut butter and chocolate!

If you want to pick up some Butterfinger Cups at Walmart, just check the candy section by the registers. They were so popular that the store here was almost sold out.
