This is just about the cutest party decoration I have come up with yet! I made my Three Little Pigs pulled pork nachos last year, and used my football helmet snack bowl to serve it. Now, I made a special post just in time for the big game!
I swung by Target to check out their snacks, and found these cute REESE’S footballs. They happened to be right next to bottles of Coca-Cola, so I thought, hey why not? I’ll make some football Coca-Cola floats too!
P.S. Target is has some offers in case you want to pick some up yourself:

Steps for Coca-Cola Football Float
Place Coca-Cola in fridge to chill well. Scoop ice cream onto a parchment-lined plate or baking sheet and place in freezer. This way, you can quickly put your floats together during the big game, and not have to worry about spending as much time serving.
Melt white chocolate, and use a toothpick to dab a line across each REESE’S football (enough to have one per float). Next, dab small lines perpendicular to long line to create the stitches.
Right before serving, pour soda with some space at the top of the glass. Spoon ice cream on top of soda. Carefully place REESE’S football on top, then add sprinkles. Top off with a fancy straw.
Now THAT is a Coca-Cola float with a lot of team spirit!
Steps for DIY Football Helmet Snack Bowl
Place round wood plaque on the cap of your spray paint to elevate it off of the ground. Spray and allow to dry according to spray can instructions.
Attach drill bit to your drill, and drill form two holes in the in top of the helmet. Flip helmet upside down and place round plaque underneath. Use screws to drill holes through the pilot holes in the helmet (already made from the drill bit), into the wood plaque. Remove screws.
Finish drilling through those two holes made in plaque, all the way through. Flip helmet right side up, and piped some wood glue on. Place plaque onto helmet, with screws aligning from plaque holes onto helmet holes.
Drill all the way in, so screws attach helmet to plaque. Flip helmet upside down. Place a bowl into top of helmet opening, that fits snugly without falling in. Fill with your favorite snacks and serve.
You can fill your football helmet snack bowl with nachos…
Or candy. Yas.
How much fun is that? Enjoy.
