For the Dip and Field:

  • 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup (113g) powdered sugar
  • 1 cup Devil’s Food Cake Mix (or chocolate cake mix)
  • 1 can white frosting
  • Green Food Coloring

For the Snackadium:

  • 1 can Pillsbury Pizza Crust
  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • ¼ cup corn syrup
  • Nonpareils
  • Candy melts in your teams colors
  • Edible Food Writers
  • 1 Fruit by the Foot
  • Assorted Dippers



  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Turn a 12-cup fluted bundt pan upside down on the cookie sheet. Cover it with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Unroll your can of pizza dough and cut it in half. Place half of the dough over one side of the budnt pan and repeat with the remaining dough. Press the seams together, and trim around the edges as needed. Use those extra pieces to fill in any gaps you need to completely cover your overturned bundt pan. Save two small extra pieces for your goal posts!
  • Bake for 14-18 minutes. It will be browner than it would be if you were going to make pizza; you want it done and not soft, otherwise it will collapse. Let it cool for at least 30 minutes before removing from pan and turning it over.


  • Goal Posts: Take two small amounts of leftover pizza dough and roll them into 3 ropes of dough. Cut 1 rope in half, so you have 2 long pieces and 2 short. Assemble the pieces in the shape of the goal post and press the edges together to seal. Repeat for second goal post. Bake for about 5 minutes on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  • Players: Unroll your crescent rolls. Separate 2 triangles from the rest of the package. Reserve the remaining rolls. Cut 1 crescent roll triangle into about 16 smaller triangles. Roll into tiny crescent rolls. Bake for just a few minutes. Once cool, melt some candy melts in desired colors and dip half the tiny crescent rolls in each color. Let harden.
  • Sign: Cut a square from the 1 triangle of crescent roll and bake for about 5 minutes. Once cool, write a desired message on the sign with edible food writers.
  • Spectators: Place corn syrup in a small bowl. Using a basting brush, brush the corn syrup around the inside of your baked snackadium. Sprinkle generously with nonpareils, to represent the spectators. Be sure to put your “people” all the way up to the top of the sides of your snackadium. Chill for at least 15 minutes.
  • Flags: Cut triangles from your Fruit by the Foot strip and wrap each end around a toothpick. Stick around the top of the snackadium for decoration.


  • Cake Batter Dip: Mix 4 ounces room temperature cream cheese and 4 tablespoons room temperature butter with a hand mixer. Mix in 1 cup of cake mix (dry) and 1 cup of powdered sugar. Add 2-3 tablespoons of milk until mixture reaches your desired consistency. Spread your “dirt” cake batter dip (Devil’s Food) in the bottom of your snackadium.
  • Reserve half the can of vanilla frosting. Tint the rest green and spread it over the cake batter dip.
  • Place the rest of the white frosting ziploc bag with the corner snipped off. Pipe a large rectangle in the center of your field. Divide your large rectangle into 12 small ones, using your frosting, to create the playing field and yard lines. If you wish to make “end zones” you can tint some of your leftover white frosting a color and fill in each of the outer rectangles with different colors. Place a goal post in each end zone.
  • Place your tiny crescent roll “players” on the field and on the sideline. You can use a chocolate chip for the football. Attach the sign to the snackadium with a toothpick.
  • Serve with any dippers you want!


  • Color the players however you want - be sure to use the colors from the big game.
  • Make sure your piza crust is really golden brown - you want it fully done (crunchy) so it holds up.
  • Spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray really well so it pops off easily.
