Ballpark Bars

I’ve never been a big baseball fan, but I do enjoy going to the ballpark and snacking my way through the games. 😉 Being a mom of three boys, chances are pretty high I’m going to become a baseball mom one of these years. Yikes! Aren’t there like 100 games each season?! Whew! Well, I guess that just means I’ll be on a diet of pretzels, peanuts and cracker jacks half the year! 😉

The boys are very interested in baseball right now and with the excitement of the World Series going on, we’re constantly singing “take me out to the ballgame” which then makes me start craving peanuts and cracker jacks! Mmmm! So for a fun and festive treat this week, I made these awesome Ballpark Bars that are packed with all the yumminess you could get at a ballgame!

A triple play of crunchy pretzels, salty peanuts, and sweet cracker jacks are coated in melted marshmallows that you can cut into bars for the perfect ballgame sweet treat.
